The Canby Gators Swim Club is a non-profit youth organization that is a member of USA Swimming, the state and national organization for competitive swimming. Our team has over 60 swimmers ranging in ages 5-18, all of whom have the opportunity to compete at local, state, regional, and national levels. These swimmers practice at the Canby Municipal Swim Center.
The Gators have annually placed swimmers on the State and Zone All-stars Teams, placed consecutive top 10 State finishes, and have annually had qualifiers for Age Group and Senior Sectionals (competition between 7-12 states). These same athletes become our local swim instructors for the swim lessons and life guards. In the classroom our athletes routinely finish in the top 10% of their classes and have gone on to attend Idaho State University, Pacific University, and Texas Christian University to name a few.
Our program attracts parents and young children who can make a commitment to athletics and academics. We believe that our program teaches young children about setting goals and working to meet those goals through time management, self-discipline, attention prioritization, and the benefits of competing. We hold three swim meets each year locally at the Canby Swim Center that attract swimmers and their families from all over the State of Oregon. The meets are the Mile Meet, held in November; The Animal Meet, held in December; and Valentine’s Day Meet, held in February.
We would like to provide an opportunity for your business to support the Canby Gators by becoming a team sponsor. Not only will your business gain visibility, it will also gain recognition for it’s support of a high quality sports program that teaches valuable life skills.
