WHY SWIM WITH GCAT?

Not only is swimming fun, but it also provides numerous health benefits.  Swimming is a form of physical exercise that raises heart rate, improves cardiovascular endurance, strengthens lung capacity, builds and tones muscles, and improve sleeps.  Swimming can also boost self-confidence while teaching work ethic, commitment, goal setting, and time management skills. GCAT swimmers learn proper mechanics and focus on improving their technical skills and speed as they practice in age-appropriate groups. Athletes will be encouraged to vizualize their success and maintain a Positive Mental Image. Most go on to swim at the collegiate level and develop a lifelong love for swimming and competing. GCAT is a competitive year-round swim team for swimmers ages 5-18 years old. Head Coach Bill Forrester, Olympic Bronze Medalist, leads a group of experienced swim coaches who teach beginning to advanced stroke techniques while encouraging their swimmers to be disciplined, goal orientated, well-mannered, and AMAZING swimmers!
