Thank you for your interest in the Granite Bay Gators.  The Granite Bay Gators Swim Team is open to swimmers ages 5-18 who meet the eligibility requirements.

New Swimmer Registration – OPENS March 1st

Registration must be completed via the Gators website at www.granitebaygators.com.  Click on Gators Registration for more information.  Register for the 2019 season and GUARANTEE your spot at the same registration fee for 2020!!  New Ages 15-18 (as of 6/15/19) swim for $150.  

You will need to create a family account to be able to register your swimmers. Once registered, the status will be set as Pending Approval. All swimmers 11 and up will be approved. An assessment is required for swimmers 10 and under to ensure the swimmer is water safe.  If the assessment is passed, the application will be approved.  If the water assessment is not passed, the application will be rejected and a refund will be processed. 

If you have a sibling of a returning swimmer who did not swim with the Gators last year, but wants to participate this year, you may register the sibling(s) at the same time you process your returning swimmer registration. An assessment is required for siblings of returning swimmers to ensure the swimmer is water safe.  If the assessment is passed, the sibling will be invited to join the Gators.  If the water assessment is not passed, a refund will be processed.

We will have coaches in the water for all assessments. An assessment is required for siblings of returning swimmers to ensure the swimmer is water safe.

  • First, we are looking for swimmers who are safe in the water.
  • Swimmers 6 and Under: Swim at least half the length of the pool (12 1/2 yards), unassisted. Able to float on the back, unassisted.  Coaches will note how far the swimmer can swim unassisted.
  • Swimmers 7-10:  We will be assessing knowledge of all strokes (freestyle, backstroke, breast and butterfly), however knowledge of all strokes is not required.
  • Coach-ability - we are looking for swimmers who listen carefully and follow direction.
