Minimum Requirements:

Must successfully pass promotional goals for Bronze Gators and have proper equipment prior to the first day of practice. (See equipment list below)

Group Description:

Gold Gators swim 5000-8000 yards daily. This group is for the high school age swimmer who is serious about conditioning. This group is involved in a broad band training program that involves race strategy, advanced goal setting, nutrition, core strength development, technique, emotional and physical conditioning. Each swimmer will prove through their practice effort that they are ready for the challenges presented in this group. The objective is to prepare swimmers for competition in Junior+ and Senior+ meets. Swimmers will be taught about leadership and commitment to the team and mentoring younger swimmers. They are expected to promote the team and the sport of swimming. Swimmers who contribute their time to the team will be given community service hours. This is a great opportunity for swimmers to seek out their coaching staff job, internship and college letters of recommendation.

Group Focus:

  • Improve and emphasize technique, race strategy and proper practice habits
  • 5000-8000 yards per workout
  • Participation in one or more swim meets per month is required

Promotional Goals:

Swimmers in this group strive to reach these goals for consideration to be moved up to the next group.

80% attendance=5 days a week must be achieved for promotional consideration.

  • 16 x 100 flutter kick on the 2:00
  • 16 x 100 Freestyle on the 1:25
  • 5 x 200 IM on the 2:45

Please put your name on all of your belongings and equipment with a permanent marker!

Swimmers will also need to purchase a racing suit. Racing suits are used solely for that purpose and are worn much tighter than practice suits to reduce drag. Black is the preferred team color. At a minimum, our athletes are expected to compete with the team cap at all USA Swimming sanctioned meets.

Speedo is our team suit & equipment provider. We are required to use Speedo products whenever possible. Please see the links in Team Store for ordering equipment.
