Grinning Gators

Grinning Gators is our developmental swim league. The focus of Grinning Gators is on beginning swimmers and younger swimmers who want to improve their water confidence, stroke technique, learn swim team terminology, and begin the learning to dive process. Grinning Gators should be comfortable putting their face in the water but not yet able to swim 25 yards. 

Our Grinning Gators Director, Coach Sally Lewis, will be teaching one on one private lessons to those interested in signing up for Grinning Gators. 

Coach Sally Lewis returns to Green Valley for her third season as Grinning Gators Program Director.  Coach Sally comes to GVP from her year-round position as an Assistant Coach at the Greensboro Community YMCA. As a GCY coach, Sally works with young swimmers in the Jr. Makos program providing in water instruction to children aged 6 and under who are preparing for summer swim, and as an on deck coach for 8 and under swimmers.  Coach Sally understands the importance of swimming in the lives of children.
