Garden City SwimMING
Dual meets are weekly meets held against other swim teams in the division. This summer, our team will be competing in five dual meets. Warmups begin between 7:15-7:30 a.m. and meets run from 8-9:30/10 a.m. Swimmers must arrive at the dual meet location no later than 7 a.m. If you arrive late, you may be scratched from the lineup.
Dual Meet Schedule:
Meet #1 - TBD
Meet #2 - TBD
Meet #3 - TBD
Meet #4 - TBD
Meet #5 - TBD
Division 1 Championship Meet - TBD
Please consult the team email for information on the Champs lineups, alternates, locations, and times. Unlike regular dual meets, the team submits only one swimmer for individual events and relays during Champs. See your coach with any specific questions.
In order to be eligible for Champs, a swimmer must have competed in at least THREE dual meets.
Designed for individual competition and improvement, class meets are optional meets held during the week at local Town of Hempstead municipal pools. Participation in a class meet is determined by a swimmer’s best time in a specific event. Warmups for all class meets begin at 3:15 p.m. and meets begin at 4 p.m. Swimmers must provide their own transportation to class meets.
While we encourage all of our swimmers to attend the class meets that they qualify for, the meets are optional and do not take the place of dual meets to count towards eligibility for the championship meets.
Please speak to your coach if you're interested in attending a class meet.
Christopher Crafa Memorial Blue & White Meet
Initiated in 2014, the Christopher Crafa Memorial Blue & White Meet was renamed in memory of one of our former swimmers, Christopher Crafa, after his passing in 2019. Christopher swam on the "A" Team with his triplet brothers, John and Thomas, from 2004-2014. He also swam for the Garden City High School and Catholic University. This annual meet is an opportunity to celebrate not only the end of the swim season but also Christopher, his enthusiasm and love for the sport, and the profound impact he made on all those who knew and loved him.
All swimmers and parents, as well as any former swimmers, parents, and coaches, are invited to join us for the 2023 Christopher Crafa Memorial Blue & White Meet. The meet will be held TBD.
