Practice:  Our first practice starts on Monday, April 25. Please see the website for age group times.    Granite Bay Gators - Practice Schedule (  Due to constraints with the pool, our practice times for the spring and summer are changing.  The new practice times are reflected on the website.
Team Suits and other Team Gear:  Our team suits are ready to order, but before you order, please come to the pool and try on sample suits for sizing.  We will have suits to try on at practice on April 25, 26 and 27 from 4:30 to 7:00 pm.  There will be a table set up with swimsuit sizes to try on.  When you order, these suits are non-refundable, so please make sure you have the correct size.  Please go to to order your suit and other team gear for the season.

First thingsā€¦It was so amazing and so fun to see all of the smiling faces again and having the entire pool filled with our younger swimmers. The energy was awesome. Please tell others to get signed up so we can get them out there swimming. On business, we wanted to send out an email to everyone with clarification to a couple of things that came to our attention last night. Please read this email carefully and make sure we are all clear and on the same page going forward. 


    We believe there might have been some confusion on some times that got put out. To confirm the times for the Spring Clinics, they are as listed below;

    Tuesdays & Thursdays
    - Blue Group ( Advanced & Intermediate Swimmers ) |  5:30 till 6:15PM
    - Green Group (Beginner, New 10 & Under Swimmers ) | 6:15 till 7:00PM

    Please make sure your kids are there 5-10 minutes before the start of practice so we are able to get into the water right away. We only have 45 mins for these clinics and want to make sure that the kids are ready to swim right when the time hits.

    We were able to get a Monday and Wednesday group back up and running. However, it will be starting next week on Monday. We are always looking to get more kids signed up, so please tell your friends and classmates about it. Starting next week, both Blue and Green M/W practice group will practice from 5:30 - 6:15PM. Please make sure you are there 5-10 minutes before the start of practice to make sure your kids are in on time. Just like mentioned before as well, please make sure your kids have all of their necessary equipment. We will definitely like to use fins for the younger group.

If you have any other questions regarding practice. Please feel free to email us or Coach Donny and we will try and get back to you as soon as we can! Thank you for your time! Have a great rest of your day!
