About the Teams
The Garden City Pool sponsors two swim teams that compete in the Nassau Municipal Swim Conference against other local municipal pools. We offer a competitive "A" team that swims in Division 1 and a developmental "B" team that swims in Division 2. All GC Pool members ages 6-16 as of June 1, 2020, are eligible to try out for our teams. Prospective swimmers must be pool members prior to their tryout date.
Please note that our teams are not to be used as swim lessons. All swimmers trying out for our teams must be able to swim at least one lap on their own. If you are interested in signing your child up for swim lessons, please click here.
