Online registration is now available on the Signal Mountain Green Giants website, greengiants.swimtopia.com. Registration fees include a team T-shirt and cap and start at $141 for 12 & under swimmers; $101 for swimmers ages 13-14; and $56 for senior swimmers ages 15-19. There is a discount for families with multiple swimmers.
Swim practice will be held on mornings, Monday through Friday, from 8-10 a.m., plus Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 7-9 p.m. Practice times vary depending on age groups.
During practice, swimmers will learn and practice proper stroke mechanics and build endurance through conditioning exercises. Athletes do not have to attend every practice. However, the more practices athletes attend, the more quickly they will improve.
Meets will be held most Monday and Thursday evenings during the season. Home meets will be held on Thursday, June 6, against Catoosa Great White Sharks; Monday, June 10, against Stuart Heights; Monday, June 24, against Dalton; and Monday, July 1, against Ooltewah. Away meets will be held on June 3, 17, 19, and 27.
In addition, we hold our Sprout Meet – a special meet designed to provide competition experience for younger and less experienced athletes – at home on Monday, July 8. The season culminates in the City Meet, where teams from the entire CASL compete for individual and team honors. This year’s Bill Caulkins City Meet Championships will be held on Friday, July 12, and Saturday, July 13, at the Baylor School Natatorium.
Our Green Giant coaches strive to create a challenging, yet nurturing, team environment, where all athletes have the chance to learn, grow, and work toward their full potential as swimmers – while having fun and enjoying their summer.
