Dear Gator Families,
I'm sure it comes as no surprise to you, as sporting facilities and pools have been placed in the Highest Risk/Level 4 category for reopening based on the new health guidelines that came down on Thursday, that the Gateway Swim League has decided to cancel the 2020 Swim Season.
As members of this advisory board the Brentwood Gators will abide by the league's recommendations. We are so disappointed to not have our season together. The relationships, fitness & fun that come with early morning practices and late-night relays will be sorely missed.
One item to note, they have decided to extend the 2021 swim season to include 2020 seniors so they can have a last swim season. So if you have a senior please share this news with them.
We still hope to see all of you at the pool sometime this summer...whenever that may be.
Your 2020 Brentwood Gator Parent Reps,
Maggie, Abby, Sean & Holly
Hello Brentwood swim team families,
As of now, St. Louis City and County have extended their stay-at-home orders indefinitely. The order will be re-evaluated in mid-May. At this time we are moving swim team registration to May 15th. We hope to have more information at that time about when the stay-at-home order will be lifted and businesses are safe to reopen.
Registering for the Brentwood Gators Summer Swim Team
WHEN: Online registration for the 2020 season will open May 15
WHO: Swimmers ages 5-18 can sign up. The requirements to join the team are:
- the ability to swim the length of the pool, unassisted;
- a desire to swim; and
- a membership at the Brentwood Swim Club.
Our experienced coaches can help you determine if your child is ready for swim team on the first day of practice. Your child may be eligible to join the Junior Gators, a pre-team run by high school volunteers. We refund half the registration fee for Junior Gators.
COST: The price to join the team is $115 per swimmer in a family, each child is responsible for a silicone swim cap. If a new cap is needed families will be responsible for purchasing as part of their equipment.
Swim Suits: This is our 2nd year of our 2-year swimsuits and B&B Aquatics will be at the pool open house for those that need new suits. Brentwood Swim Team members will also receive 10% other swim team gear (goggles, caps, etc.) at the time they purchase their suits.
Participating on the swim team requires a pool membership, so please make sure your dues are fulfilled so you can take part in the team activities. Contact Gary Siddens for pool membership info: 314-614-1343 or [email protected]
