The Middleton Gator Swim & Dive 
Team provides an exciting, challenging, educational and FUN environment for swimmers and divers throughout the summer. We pride ourselves on creating a positive experience for children of all skill levels. Our goal is to teach the value of team cooperation, safety, hard work, and the pursuit of personal excellence. Through the Middleton Gator experience,we hope to give your children memories and tools to help build a healthy and happy future.
The Middleton Gators Swim & Dive Team is one of the 13 teams participating in the Madison Area All-City Swim & Dive League.  During the summer season we will compete in 7 dual/triple meets with the other 12 pools.  At the end of the season Gator members will also have the opportunity to compete in the All-City Championships; an event that brings all 13 teams together.
We are an all volunteer- run organization, and require parent volunteers to run our home meets (3 or 4 meets per summer).  All Middleton Gator Swim & Dive Team families are encouraged to be involved in team meets and activities.  
Ability Requirements: 
You must have passed Level IV of Red Cross Swimming Lessons (or equivalent) and must also demonstrate the ability to complete the majority of a practice in order to participate on the team.  We will accept swimmers that have not passed Level IV if they can demonstrate the ability to perform basic strokes and can complete an entire practice with an attitude of wanting to swim.  The first week of practice will be used as a “try-out” session for these swimmers.  Final decision will be made by the age-group coaches. The Gator Team is open to anyone 5 to 18 years of age.

2019 NEW SWIM TEAM PROGRAM:  MINI-GATORS

The Middleton Gators would like to announce a new swim team program, Mini Gators.  The Mini Gators is a perfect way to introduce young swimmers (4-8) to competitive swimming.  The focus of this program is to improve technique and endurance and tons of FUN! Swimmers must have completed the Red Cross Swimming Lessons Level 3, or equavalient to participate in this program.   Mini Gators will have the opportunity to swim a 25 meter free-style race and a relay race at our last home swim meet of the season.  

Practice for the Mini Gators will be on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings from 10:20 am to 11:00 am. The first 10 minutes will focus on announcements and stretching with the remaining 30 minutes for pool instruction.

This program cost is $100.00 .  Mini Gators receive the benefits of our team membership; this includes the team t-shirt, fun social events, team photo day, swim-a-thon, donut days, End of Season Banquet and more!

It is recommended that Mini Gators still participate in swim lessons, since practice focuses primarily on the freestyle stroke. There will be plenty of helpers in the water during practice!

Please Note: Mini Gators practices end with our last home swim meet of the season. There will be no Mini Gators practices after the last home swim meet.
