About Us

About Us:

The Grosse Pointe Gators Swim Club is a year-round competitive swimming team offering professional coaching and technique instruction for swimmers of all ages and abilities. As a USA swim team, Grosse Pointe Gators' swimmers and coaches join USA Swimming’s 500,000-member organization. USA Swimming develops the culture of swimming by creating opportunities for swimmers and coaches of all backgrounds to participate and advance in the sport through clubs, events, and education.

The goal of our team is to provide every member an opportunity to improve their swimming skills and achieve success at his or her level of ability.  All of our coaches have access to the most comprehensive training and certification program for youth coaches of any sport in the United States. This provides assurances that while the swimmers are practicing, they will receive quality instruction.

The Grosse Pointe Gators, a nonprofit club, is run by its elected Board of Directors which meets each month. All members are welcome at each meeting and encouraged to be involved in team activities and fundraisers.  If you have any questions or would like to meet our coaching staff or board members, please do not hesitate to ask.

We are constantly growing and training young swimmers to maintain a well-rounded competitive swim team.



The mission of the Grosse Pointe Gators Swim Club is to teach, train, and motivate competitive swimmers.


It is the belief of the club that all children should have access to swimming opportunities that reflect their level of interest and ability while developing strong friendships and having fun. The club strives for swimmers to reach their full potential not only by teaching the skills specific to competitive swimming, but also through reinforcing strong values that apply to all facets of life. It is our hope that members of the club will develop self-respect, set personal goals, understand the importance of teamwork, camaraderie, and good sportsmanship.
