Once again we will be sponsoring two swim teams for members 6 to 16 years of age that will compete in the Nassau Municipal Swim Conference against other local municipal pools. Our coaching staff is comprised of Lifeguards who have swimming and coaching experience. We provide a competitive "A" team as well as our developmental "B" team. The teams will practice 7:45 - 9:15 a.m., Tuesday through Friday, rain or shine, with mandatory meets on Saturday mornings. There are also weekday meets available for those competitors looking to gain more experience. The swim teams are not to be used as swimming lessons.
The registration fee is $125 for the first swimmer in a family, $100 for the second, and $75 for each additional swimmer. The fee includes the team suit, swim cap, t-shirt and end of season award.
Successful 2016 Swim Team Season!
We would like to congratulate both of our swim teams and coaches for a great season. Both teams had a great season and a lot of fun! Both the ‘A’ and ‘B’ Teams finished with a perfect season winning the Duel Meet Championship and Summer Championship Meet. We look forward to continuing our winning ways in 2017…Go GC!
