At GSC we place a strong emphasis on technique basics, creating a positive and fun learning environment, encouraging a growth mindset, and embracing a work ethic that comes from within and from the desire to achieve one’s goals. The goal of our coaches will be to not only develop successful swimmers, but to encourage strong values and grow mature responsible individuals.
