Grinning Gators is our pre-swim team program at Green Valley! Our target swimmers are children ages 3-5 who can swim but need help with endurance and proper stroke technique. Our goal for Grinning Gators is for swimmers to complete a 25 freestyle swim unassisted and potentially a 25 backstroke swim unassisted, by the end of the season. Cost is $65/swimmer and you can register here.
To insure that plenty of attention is given to each swimmer, there will be two small groups of Grinning Gators. Group I will meet on Mondays and Wednesdays and Group II will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Both groups will meet from 11:30-12:15 and will cover the exact same skills. Swimmers will spend 30 minutes of each session in the water. We have found this to be the ideal amount of time for young age children, allowing swimmers to maximize their learning while still having fun. (We know summer is a busy time for families so we understand if swimmers need to miss a session or two.)
Group I Session Dates: June 6, 8, 13, 15, 20, 22, 27, & 29*.
Group 2 Session Dates: June 7, 9, 14, 16, 21, 23, 28, & 30*.
At the end of the season, we will hold a Grinning Gators Mini-Meet*, for each of our groups. Each swimmer will have the chance to swim a 25 freestyle “race” and those who are ready can swim a 25 backstroke “race”, all for fun! Parents and grandparents are invited to attend, to watch and cheer on our Gators. At the conclusion of the Mini-Meet swimmers will celebrate with cake and a special Grinning Gators medal!
