A Small Team that Gets Big Results! 

 

Any swimmer that can swim 25 yards of freestyle and backstroke on their own is welcome to come to a practice to see if Green Bay Swim Club is the right fit. We offer training and practice groups for swimmers of all ages and ability levels. GBSC is a small team with a high coach to swimmer ratio that offers age specific training geared towards challenging each individual swimmer and developing them to the best of their ability. This type of personalized training has turned many of the GBSC swimmers into champions at Regional, State, Zones and National meets.
