Gregory Seahurst Swim Team

The GSSC Swim team is a fun and competitive summer program in association with the South Seattle Summer Swim League. The summer swim program is always a wonderful opportunity for our youth to get outside and participate in a recreational sport, to learn and practice sportsmanship, to make new friends and spend time with old ones.

What makes GSSC Swim Team so special?

We take great pride in our club and celebrate the individual & team accomplishments for our kids! Specifically:

Our Mission:

“Develop within our kids, an interest and love for swimming, diving, and tennis; provide training and competitive opportunities for youth of all abilities; celebrate team and individual “personal bests;” and provide a fun, family-friendly,“Gator Pride” atmosphere that builds sportsmanship, character, skills, and friendships.”

Our Philosophy:

  • GSSC teams are founded on the belief that age-group competitive swimming, diving, and tennis offer a fun, exciting and worthwhile experience in a young person’s life. They can be learned and enjoyed by those with very little natural ability, as well as those who are of Olympic caliber.
  • It is a basic assumption that for an age-group competitive program to succeed, it must encompass and challenge all who participate and it must follow continuous developmental progression. However, its values go far beyond that of learning efficiency in the water and on the tennis courts.
  • GSSC is dependent on committed youth, family participation, a dedicated board, and a well-qualified coaching staff. We offer fun, family-friendly, and competitive experiences designed to introduce kids to sports, perhaps for the first time and foster their interest to develop a passion to continue on.
  • We understand that not every child will be a world-class swimmer, diver or tennis player. However, every child in our program WILL undoubtedly achieve a “personal best.” We celebrate individual accomplishments as an important part of our team’s success. It is our goal to help all participants know the value of teamwork, practice good sportsmanship, reach personal goals, build character, and improve self-esteem.

What is “Gator Pride?”

“Gator Pride” is what we call our team spirit. It encompasses pride in how we care for our facility, how we conduct ourselves with sportsmanship on the court, both at home and away meet, and how we visibly support our players. It is what unifies our team, establishes our uniqueness from other clubs, and builds a spirited and fun atmosphere for our families and guests.

GSSC also offers swim lessons for kids of all ages.

We invite you to join our GSSC Swim Team and look forward to meeting you! If you have any questions about joining Swim Team, please contact our Youth Coordinator.

Order of Events

This is a list of the swim meet events. This is the order that events are always held so it is always a good idea to double check and see what your child will be swimming before the meet begins. If you have young swimmers, help them learn how to get to their event on time by writing all of their assigned events on their hands (Sharpie pens work great!)
