Gators Summer Swim Team Season Recap

July 25th, 2018

 

Another wonderful summer season with the Gators has come to a close.  The Gators finished off the season as Division 2 Champions, with a winning record of 5-1. 15 new pool records were set this season, as well as 22 new team records. Way to go Gators!

As well as having a successful season as a whole, the Gators also brought their hard work to the TSA Championship meet this weekend. Ava Phillips lead the way with a well earned 1st place finish overall in the girls 6 and under 25 yard freestyle. Natalie Clayton followed her lead, with a 1st place win overall and a new championship meet record in the girls 6 and under 25 yard backstroke! The 9-10 boys, 11-12 girls, and 13-14 boys relays made us proud with 2nd place finishes overall.

Congratulations Gators on another fun season!

A Message from the General Manager

July 18th, 2018

At this mid-point in our summer season, I’d like to take a moment to share my appreciation for all of our members who make Granite Falls Swim and Athletic Club such a great place. It is a pleasure to serve each and every one of you and I speak for our entire staff when I say it is our privilege to provide you the best experience we possibly can.

I would also like to remind everyone that while pool season is in full swing, we are still full speed ahead with our fitness schedule and workout areas. To that end please remember to refrain from slamming weights and excessively talking on your cell phone. We are of course a shared space and we rely on each member and guest to think of others courteously. In addition, please make sure you are wearing proper footwear and that we do not track in mud or grass. Finally, please remember to clean equipment after use and to re-rack weights.

Thank you all for your patronage and support. I appreciate each and every one of you and I look forward to the rest of our summer.

Ken Adrian | General Manager
