July 19, 2023

Hello Gator Families,

That's a wrap on another fun swim season! Thank you to all of the parents for making the season happen, to the swimmers for their excitement and hard work, and to the coaches for their energy.

We have a few last announcements before the Gator News goes into hibernation until next year. Please read on for information about the Fall Swim Conditioning program, reimbursements, and more.



The Gators are a small but mighty team -- please congratulate the many Gators who got PB3s (3 personal best times) at Champs!

A HUGE thank you to all the parent volunteers for donating their time and sweat to make Champs meet successful and fun. If you can provide a more accurate or flashy advertisement for your Champs job to solicit volunteers next year, please email We need all the help we can get!



If you haven't picked up your ribbons from meets (including Champs) this year, they are waiting for you in the ribbon bin at Eichler.

If you are a first year swimmer and did not get your First-Year-Swimmer trophy, you can pick it up from the box in the clubroom.

The 2023 season commemorative coins have not yet arrived, but will be placed in your folders when they’re here - likely next week. Stay tuned! If you didn’t pick up your coin from last season (2022), feel free to pick one up from the bin next to the ribbon box.



Itching for more swim? Sign-up now for fall conditioning! Eichler offers a 10 week youth conditioning program focused on fun and fitness.

Sept 11- Nov 16, 2023; Monday to Thursday (4 days / week)

Groups/practice times:

8 & Under group, 4:30-5:00, $300

9, 10, 11's group, 5:00-5:45, $350

A invoice will be sent to the registering email below. Please fill out one form per swimmer.

This program is open to all Eichler youth swimmers and waitlist youth swimmers up to capacity.

All swimmers must be able swimmers, motivated to swim repeats of 25 yards without in-water assistance.

We realize all swimmers can't make every practice, come as much as you can!

We would love to have all the waitlist gators who are interested!
