About Us:

GSC is a non-profit organization founded by parents of swimmers in 1973. GSC works in
cooperation with Parks and Recreation to provide a year-round competitive swim program for
the youth of Juneau. GSC is partially funded by the citizens of the City and Borough of Juneau
through sales tax revenues. GSC provides the remainder of the necessary funding through
monthly dues and fund raising.
The sport of swimming has many benefits, including the people you and your child will meet.
The camaraderie among swimmers is unique, and many swimmers and their parents become
lifelong friends. Swimming as a competitive sport is second to none in fostering the
development of many valuable life skills. These include work ethic, determination, goal setting,
time management, self-improvement as a focus, risk taking, teamwork, sportsmanship and self-discipline.
Your child will reap the benefits of swimming long after their competitive participation
