Our Northside K of C Gator Swim Club was established in the year 2000 with the focus of teaching youth in our community excellence in swimming and life through sportsmanship, discipline, teamwork, and integrity. The team is based out of the Northside Knights of Columbus pool at 2100 East 71st street, Indianapolis, IN 46220.
Consisting of more than seventy swimmers between the ages of five and fourteen, the Gator team led by Head Coach Vicki Roessler and her Assistant Coach Lizzy Oakley provide a comprehensive summer swimming program that serves all levels of competitive swimming. Enrollment begins in the spring and practices start after the pool opens on memorial day weekend.
The Gator Swim Club is a member of the Metro Recreational league commonly known as “Metro Rec” which is made up of eight clubs based out of College Park, North Willow Farms, Smokey Row, Village Farms, The Woodlands, Woods Run and Woodland Springs. The league is a summer league which holds multiple meets throughout the summer hosted by the various clubs. The end of the summer is marked by the Metro Rec Invitational which is a two day event where swimmers of all the above swim clubs participate in their various events.
The summer membership fee for the Gator Swim team varies for members and non-members. The first child is $85.00 and each additional child is $65.00. Non-members $105.00 1st child and $85.00 for each additional child. This includes a fee of $20.00 for the Conference meet at the end of the season.
The Gator Swim Club relies on a strong parent volunteer base to assist with meets and participate in club activities keeps. The 2012 season was the teams best year yet as they took home a couple victories at our home pool propelling them to take 4th place in last years 3- day Metro Rec League Invitational. We are very much looking forward to another great season in 2013.
Each year our club gets better and better as we work to advance our program and our swimmers. This year we have begun our Gator Sponsorship Program. Our sponsorship program has various levels for local businesses and individuals to support our swim club.
Next year in 2014, we will be our year to host the leagues Metro Rec Invitational meet. We will be at our pool and will be the club hosting. Go Gators!
