Welcome to the Gerrish Gators Swim Team Page! 

Below you will find all the information you'll need for a fun swim season.

Gerrish Gators is a competitive and non-competitive swimming program for our young members (ages 5 to 17). Under the supervision of kid-friendly coaches, swimmers discover and develop with healthy competition in all levels of swimming. Gerrish participates in the Crest League.  Includes stroke clinics and a team t-shirt.

Swim Team is a great program for kids that are comfortable in the water and eager to compete as a swimmer.  Requirements: It’s OK we aren’t looking for Olympic swimmers who swim for time; we just want to make sure they can swim ONE lap of freestyle across the pool.
