Go For The Gold (GFTG)is a motivational program for all SwimTulsa Blue Team and White Team swimmers and SwimAmerica stations 6 & 7. SwimTulsa has designed intrasquad meets to provide an introduction to competitive swimming for our newest swimmers and valuable race experience for our seasoned competitors. At these meets, swimmers race to get best times. A swimmer who participates in GFTG meets gains experience necessary to race in USA Swimming meets.
All GFTG meets are held at the Union pool which is a 25 meter course.
These meets are friendly to our new competitors. A participation prize will be given to each swimmer who competes in a GFTG meet and all swimmers are encouraged to take the SwimTulsa Trophy Challenge (below).
All White Team and Blue Team swimmers are prepared to swim these events. SA station 6 & 7 swimmers will race 25’s (count lengths of the pool like quarters: 1=25, 2=50, 4=100) of each stroke, based on readiness. White Team will race 50’s of each stroke based on readiness. ST Blue Team swimmers will race various events chosen by their coach. Meets are held at the end of each 8 week SA lessons session on a regular practice evening; warm up begins at 6:00pm and the meets finish before 8:00pm.
