Scott Griffith

Welcome to our Winter Season! 

Meet Updates

  • Congratulations to all the HS Swimmers on an excellent season.  Special high fives to team record breakers PJ Foy (15/16 and Open boys 200 IM, and 15/16 and Open boys 100 breast) and Caitlin Sanders (13/14 girls 100 back).
  • November Rain has been canceled.  GSC is actively searching for another travel meet before our Intrasquad champs.  Stay tuned...
  • GSC Intrasquad Champs is set for Dec 11 and 12.  Sign up deadline is Dec 4.  The meet will take place at DPAC, Saturday afternoon and Sunday am.  Swimmers can swim up to 6 events (3 per day).

Events & Other Dates

  • Halloween Party was a hit!  So much fun for all involved.  Thanks to the volunteers who made it all happen!
  • No practice this Thursday (Veteran's Day), or November 25 & 26 (Thanksgiving).  
  • Winter practice schedule starts TODAY.  There will be a dryland adjustment in December for Sharks & Orcas.  We will follow this schedule until AGB closes for repairs (sometime early 2022).

Reminders

GSC swimmers are excused from paying pool entry fees for lap swims only.  If your GSC swimmer would like to attend an open swim before or after practice (or any other time), they must pay the regular pool entry fee.  CBJ is offering a Winter Pass right now that is a great deal, $150 for a 5 month (Nov 1 - March 31) unlimited pass into public use times at both pools, Treadwell Arena, and Dimond Park Field House.
