Creative Activities
Check out GSC Coaches and Swimmers Keeping Busy! (Send your pictures in too!)

Remember there are no required workouts and all activities are optional. We send these suggestions for motivational purposes, hoping to make it easier for you to stay active and in shape. Because our coaches cannot directly supervise any activities, you must assume the responsibility for it so be careful!
