Sign up to hit the pool with the Grafton Gators this summer

GRAFTON— The Grafton Gators Swim Team is ready to welcome young swimmers to the pool for their 2022 season and will be hosting sign-up for potentials.

According to an announcement on Facebook, the team will be hosting sign-ups on Sunday, April 24 and Monday, April 25, from 7:30-8:30 p.m., at the Grafton City Pool. 

As in the past, the registration fee will be $35 per swimmer, which must be paid upon signing up your swimmer. 

In addition, each swimmer will be responsible for purchasing goggles and a one-piece swimsuit. 

In the past, coaches have provided a link for their traditional green suits for parents to order from. These details and more will be shared with registrants during sign-ups. 

Usually, evening practices are held after the pool closes to the public, and meets are on Tuesdays and Thursdays. However, this is subject to change. 

And while there is no lower age limit to be a part of the team, since it is a competitive team, the swimmer must be able to swim the length of the pool (25 meters) without any assistance, and without stopping for breaks.

The maximum age for a Gator is 18.
