2018 Swim Team Programs 

Mini Gators Instructional Program (4-12 yrs)
$135 Resident / $160 Non-resident
If your child can swim, but cannot swim 25 yards (the length of Ebster Pool), they aren't quite ready for the Decatur Gators swim team. They may be just perfect for the Mini Gators program. This program will focus on stroke training in an attempt to get your young swimmer comfortable with swimming the length of the pool. Successful mini gators may even be able to compete in one of the final swim meets. Enroll early because both sessions fill up every year.

Session I:  4:30pm-5:15pm    192090 05
Session II: 5:15pm - 6:00pm  192090 06 

Multiple child discount does not apply to the mini gators program since space is so limited. 

Decatur Gators Swim Team (4-18 yrs)
192090 -04
$175 Resident / $200 Non-resident 
Resident Multi-Child Discount (Children must have the same guardian(s)):
2nd child 25% off; 3rd child 33% off; 4th child 50% off 

Each child must be able to swim 25 meters of either freestyle or backstroke. Children, who cannot swim 25 meters should be enrolled in Mini Gators. Mini Gators is an instructional league offering from the City of Decatur. The goal of the Mini Gators program will be to teach strokes and proper swimming technique, so that members will be able to graduate to the Gators Swim Team, hopefully, before the end of the season. Please be aware that mini gators enrollment will have a strict limit of 40. If you are unsure whether your child can swim 25 meters, then they should be enrolled in the mini gators program. We will not be able to downgrade children from the Gators Swim Team to the Mini Gators once the roster is full. Swim test will be available prior to registration.  You may also contact Beth Costello at to request a swim test.

Team Social on April 29th from 3:00pm to 5:00pm at Ebster Pool. You must be registered to attend.
Come meet the coaches and learn more about the team.
