Mount Horeb Tri-County Gators
A competitive summer swimming experience for Mount Horeb Residents ages 6-18. Swimmers receive instruction on stroke technique, race strategies, and are part of a fun and exciting team experience! Includes 7 swim meets with buses to away dual meets, a number of Gator socials, end of season awards, and a Gators team swim cap. Practices and home meets are at the Mount Horeb Family Aquatic Center. Starts the Tuesday after Memorial Day with the Conference Championships on the last full weekend in July. Swimmers must be able to swim at least 1 length of the pool (35 yards) each of front crawl (freestyle) and backstroke without stopping or assistance.
Gators are expected to participate in three Gators practices per week. Practices with Summer Long Course session count up to two out of those three practices.
Gators are expected to swim in at least three dual meets in addition to the Conference meet if eligible.
NOTE: You MUST compete in 3 dual meets to be eligible to swim in conference. This is a Tri-County Conference rule.
By rule, all swimmers competing for points at meets must come from the Mount Horeb school district with the exception of 7 waivers for families that are not in another Tri-County team district. A wait list for waivers is based on longevity with the summer Gators and potential to help progress the team. Wait listed swimmers are still eligible to practice and swim in meets, just not for points. If swimmer is from a community with a Tri-County team, league rules state that family is not allowed a waiver, but is still welcome to participate in practices and dual meets, just not for points.
