Summer 2019 Recreational Swim Program
Welcome to the Alameda Gators 2019 Summer Season registration!
The Summer Recreational program will run from Tuesday, May 28, through Thursday, August 1, 2019. (10 weeks). This summer the program will culminate with participation in the 65th City of Alameda Annual Swim Meet, hosted by the Gators and the City of Alameda Department of Parks and Recreation, taking place at the Encinal Swim Center from Friday, August 2 through Sunday, August 4th. Registration for the 2019 Summer Recreational Program will include the meet fees for this friendly swim competition open only to Alameda residents. Our team will automatically register all recreational swimmers for this fun event. We are really excited this year to give our recreational swimmers the opportunity to get a small taste of the fun involved with being a Gator swimmer. (Click here for full details on the Recreational program.)
We will be running TWO summer recreational groups, each 45 minutes long. Both groups will practice at Lincoln Pool. The first group will practice from 5:45 to 6:30 pm. The second group will practice from 6:30 to 7:15 pm. PLEASE NOTE THESE SLIGHT TIME CHANGES!!!!!
Both recreational groups will have practices Mondays through Thursdays. Again, the season will end with you swimming as a Novice swimmer at the City of Alameda Annual Swim Meet on August 3-4 at Encinal Pool. Please put these dates on your calendar - you won't want to miss it. This is a fantastic low key opportunity to see what competitive swimming is all about.
PLEASE NOTE: There is NO swimming July 4th, July 11th, and July 12th.
RETURNING AND NEW SWIMMERS: For all swimmers the cost of the program will be $315. For book-keeping and financial reasons, we will no longer be providing discounts from the program price for siblings, membership on the competitive team, or prior USA swimming registration.
Returning Swimmers: Registration Opens April 1. Please register by the 7th if you wish to secure a place in the Summer program. No spots will be guaranteed or held for returning swimmers. The Spring Recreational Program did fill to capacity. Please note: we only offer refunds through the end of the first week of the program. After that, your fees are non-refundable.
We do charge a $25.00 fee to process a requested refund prior to that time that isn’t due to an unsuccessful evaluation. Please be sure the dates and times work for you prior to registering. If your swimmer is evaluated and isn’t ready for the program, we will refund your fees in full.
New Swimmers: REGISTRATION FOR NEW SWIMMERS BEGINS ON APRIL 8th!
Evaluations for participation in this group will be held on Friday May 3rd 2019 at 6 pm at Lincoln Pool. ALL SWIMMERS MUST BE REGISTERED TO BE EVALUATED!!!! If you plan to attend on the 5/3 please register online prior to attending the evaluation. Please let us know if you will be unable to attend.
All swimmers must be able to swim at least one lap of the pool unassisted and without stopping in order to participate. The coaches also expect them to be able to complete a one hour workout. Please plan to attend during the first week of the program so that the coaches can make sure your child meets those requirements.
