14 May Gators Swim Team Signups Now Available
The Mt. Sterling Gators are a competitive swim team for swimmers ages 5-18. We will practice on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday each week in the morning. The season will begin on Thursday, June 3 and will continue through Friday, July 16. Swimmers will be broken into three practice groups based on age and ability. You will be notified of your swimmer’s practice time the week before practice begins. Meets will be on weekday evenings and occasionally on Saturday mornings. A complete meet schedule will be available during the first week of practice.
Please understand that Gators is not swim lessons! Swimmers age 7 and older need to be able to swim the length of the pool (25 yards) unassisted—it can be ugly, but they must be able to swim. Swimmers 6 and under need to be able to swim at least 15 feet unassisted.
Swimming is a family participation sport! In order for meets to happen, family members will have to volunteer. Please understand that each family will be expected to provide volunteers multiple times through the season.
Our team philosophy is for EVERY swimmer to learn proper stroke technique, develop a love of the sport, and to have fun! Summer swimming is all about learning something new with your friends while displaying team spirit and sportsmanship at all times. The coaches can’t wait to get started! Go Gators!
