Swim Groups/Fees

The Greenwood Gators offer training groups for swimmers of all ages and ability levels. It is the goal of the Greenwood Gators to offer training for all of our athletes that is geared towards challenging each individual and developing each individual to the best of THEIR abilities. 

The Gators are utilizing a progression that helps to define the skills the kids need at each level. Swimmer progressions are an art, with many factors that impact the decision. Swimmers must be able to swim in an organized and predictable pattern for safety and for all swimmers in the group to progress and train together.  Key factors that coaches will look at in determining the appropriate training for your child are physical ability, emotional maturity, age/cognitive level, and drive.  A swimmer must be able to perform the highlighted skills for consideration of entry into the designated group:
