We would like younger and non-competitive swimmers to experience the meet culture and excitement and to support their teammates. The meet is where all the hard work that the athlete has put in is rewarded through recognition of skills. Does my child have to "try out" for the team? There are no tryouts. We accept all swimmers who can swim across the pool unassisted.

We will evaluate the swimmers on the first day at practice to be placed into practice groups.

How long is the swim season? Our year is from September to August and we operate our fee schedule on a quarterly schedule. What happens if your child has a disappointing swim If your child has a poor race and comes out of it feeling bad, talk about the good things. Talk about the good things the child did, never negative things. If your child says, "That was a bad race, don't tell me it wasn't," there is nothing wrong with the swimmer negatively evaluating their race.

The important thing is for the child not to dwell on it. Steer on to something good. How do you think you can do better next time? Balancing other activities with swim team is something that we take very seriously. This is a decision that the parents must decide, if they feel their child are able to participate in our program without added stress to the swimmer and your family.

We are year around and accept swimmers all year long. You will not be charged unless your child is accepted into the program. When ready, swimmers may be promoted to the Gators swim team at any time during the season, at the discretion of the coaching staff.

Mini Gators do not participate in meets; therefore, parents are not required to sign up to volunteer unless your child is invited to join the full team. Children as young as five are welcome to join the dive team if they are willing to independently jump off of the diving board into deep water and are able to independently swim to the side.


The Head Dive Coach will decide if a child is ready to participate in dive team practices and meets. The Signature Club Gators is a volunteer organization which relies heavily on the manpower of parent volunteers. All families are expected to volunteer throughout the season and to meet a minimum requirement of shifts worked. Alternately, families may opt out of the volunteer commitment by paying a fee.
