Swim Team Info
The swim team runs from mid-June through the last weekend of July.
Swim meets are Saturday mornings and Wednesday evenings. Our league competes with local pools in Springfield, Abington, Cheltenham, and Hatboro Townships.
Competitive swimmers should be able to commit to at least four of the six swim meets. Competition is fun and really the best part of the season!
Pre-Competitive swimmers are encouraged to swim at one meet during the season!
In addition to swim meets, lots of fun events are hosted by the team throughout the season. The annual team pancake breakfast and team trip to Movie Tavern are swimmers’ favorites!
Competitive swimmers should be able to swim AT LEAST four laps of the pool- 100 meters- without stopping. Basic knowledge of the four competitive strokes- butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke, and freestyle- are a MUST.
Pre-Competitive swimmers should be able to swim at least two laps of the pool- swimming either freestyle or breaststroke- without stopping.
There are many swimmers “on the fence” each season. The coaches hold tryouts in early June to determine each swimmer’s readiness.
Parents should be ready and willing to volunteer at swim meets!

Per the by-laws of our swim league, the Liberty Swim League, swimmers cannot compete in more than one summer team. If you are a member of another swim, you are unable to join the Flourtown Swim Team. By registering for the Gators, you acknowledge that you are not enrolled on another summer swim team.
