Adult Team

This program is for swimmers ages 19 and up who can swim 25 yards or more without stopping. It is for participants who wish to stay fit or who aggressively compete in swimming or triathlons. Coaches will be on deck to improve stroke technique, endurance and speed. Workouts will be written specifically for all levels on the team. Please contact Gators Head Coach Erich Richardson for details at 701.364.4151 or [email protected].
