- Face covering required on deck
The Gateway Gators swim team is competitive and not a program to learn how to swim or for recreational swim. All students trying out should have knowledge of the four strokes. Although not necessary, it is highly recommended that students have experience on a swim team before considering trying out. You must have turned in your athletic packet and fee in order to be able to try out. Athletes must participate in tryouts on the tryout date or contact Coach Leach of their reason of absence or they will not be allowed on the team.
