Summer Training

GPAC 2018 Summer Program Information

The summer program is only for current GPAC swimmers or swimmers currently in swim lessons approved to move onto the team. We will again accept new swimmers for the fall season. Tryout information will be on the GPAC website in June and tryouts will take place in July and August.

Beginning at the age of 11, really at the latest it should be 11, swimmers should be adding more training to their summer schedule at a minimum of three times per week. Summer club swimming is not nearly enough! This is what swimmers all across the country are doing. Because this is becoming the norm, times to qualify for meets are going to continue to get faster: more swimmers training in the summer at a high level means the average swimmer is getting faster which, in turn, means the average qualifying times for all meets gets faster.
