Welcome to the Grosse Pointe Gators electronic registration platform for our upcoming swim season! We are pleased to offer electronic payment processing and registration. The process is simple for both new and returning members. You'll get access to your own private account that will enable you to declare for swim meets, sign-up for jobs, see your children's swim history, maintain your own contact information, and more.
We look forward to having you join the Grosse Pointe Gators and are excited for another great season!
The Winter Session will begin on Tuesday January 2, 2018 and runs through Friday, March 30, 2018 for all groups (13 week session). Winter session swimmers may also swim the week of December 25th (after Christmas).
High School Boy Swimmers
High school boys that are coming back to swim with the Gators after their high school season ends will sign up for the high school boys rate for the rest of the winter session.
Platinum - $325, Gold 1 - $325, Gold 2 - $325, Gold Plus – $370, Silver - $400, Bronze $435, Senior Team - $475, High School Boys - $115, and Masters - $245.
If your swimmer needs to be evaluated to determine what group they should be in, please contact Assistant Head Coach Tony Grice at firstname.lastname@example.org. He will coordinate with our coaches on a time and place for the evaluation. You must have the coach’s approval to move swimmers up groups.
USA Swimming Membership Fee
All swimmers must be registered with USA Swimming. The cost is $76. This is in addition to the session fee. If you did not swim during the fall session, this fee will be added in during registration. Answer "No" to the question about swimming during the 2017 fall session. If you swam with us for the fall session, you have already paid this fee.
To help with the costs of putting on meets and social events throughout the session, a $20 Meet/Social fee per swimmer will be added to the session fees at registration. This fee does not apply to the Masters group.
Volunteers are critical to the survival of our swim club. Everyone needs to do their part. Each family will be required to volunteer for 2 sessions of the meet the Gators host, the Fast & Furious on January 26-28. There will be 7 sessions to this meet. If a family does not fulfill that requirement, their Gators Account will be charged $200. There will other opportunities to volunteer for social events during the session if you are not able to volunteer for this meet. This fee does not apply to the Masters group.
***Please note that the fee was raised to $200 for this meet. We had many families that did not volunteer for the Romp in the Swamp Meet we hosted this fall. With the prelim/final format of the Fast & Furious meet, it is 7 sessions long (2 more sessions than Romp), and the meet is going to be twice the size of the Romp meet. Based on these two things we will need a much greater demand for volunteers at this meet. The funds raised from this meet help keep our rates low. Our pool fees were increased by 15% this year. It is critical that we host a successful meet and to do so we need every family to volunteer.
