Wallygators Swim Team

We ask each child under 12 years of age to swim 2 full laps of the pool and then tread water for 1 minute.  Based on how well that goes we will assign the child to one of the following groups:

  • Free Swim Lessons
  • Little Gators Swim Team (Developmental Team)
  • JV Swim Team
  • Varsity Swim Team 

Regardless of the group the child starts swimming treat them as one team.  Every child is encouraged to have fun and is provided instruction necessary to improve their swimming ability.  Since we started the Little Gators two years ago everyone of them had the opportunity to swim in a JV Swim meet.

The practice sessions will be typically Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday mornings (8:00 am-11:am).  The practices last anywhere from 45 minutes to 1 hour.  The practice session start times and groups are setup based on ages and abilities.  We also have an evening practice session for those that cannot make the morning practices (typically 5:30 pm).

  • 8 and Under Practice 8 am to 8:45 am
  • 10 and 12 and Unders Practice Time 8:45 to 9:45 am
  • 14 and 18 and Under Practice Time 9:45 am to 11 am

The JV Swim Meets are typically Tuesday mornings (9 am) and the Varsity Swim Meets are typically Wednesday evenings (5:30 pm).  The average swim meet can last 3 hours (+/- 30minutes).  There are 4-5 JV swim meets and 4-5 Varsity Swim meets each season.  Additionally there are championship swim meets that occur the last week of July.  Both the JV and Varsity swim meets will be either home at our club or away at one of the clubs in our league.

Wallygators Dive Team

Our participation in the Diving League was renewed last year after more than 10 years of hiatus.  The Wallygators took the league by storm with their zest for fun and trying something new.  We askeach child to be able to pass the deepwater test and come to be comfortable diving headfirst from the Diving Board.

Practices are typically right after swim practices (11am to 12 noon).  The practice schedule will be announced by the start of June each season.  This year we had a challenge with our equipment and as a result we have rented another facility to hold Diving practice.  Currently all of our Diving Meets are away based due to restrictions of our equipment.
