There will be an informational flyer coming home with students next week. I have included the information below.
The Grandville Bulldog Swimming (GBDS) program is designed to give children the opportunity to progress from beginning swimming to championship levels. Your child will learn better stroke technique and gain confidence in competition against others their age and gender. Swimmers must be able to swim the shortest race of his/her age group—freestyle and backstroke.
We encourage all swimmers to attend practices as frequently as they can, given time commitments and other opportunities for personal growth outside the pool. If you feel GBDS is the right fit for you, there are a few dates for which you come and register.
*PLACEMENT DATE--ALL NEW SWIMMERS will be April 24th and 26th at the High School Pool during registration*
All new swimmers will be evaluated before the season begins, in order to determine if the swimmer is physically ready for the demands that will be placed on him/her. We want all swimmers to be successful and proficient in practice and meets. In some cases, the swimmer may not be ready for the current season. Therefore, the coach will suggest taking a session of swim lessons to build that proficiency, and then have them try the swim team the next season.
