The Masters State swim meet was a ton of fun in Grand Junction, great pool, fast-n-friendly competitors, and exciting races! It sure gives me an appreciatition for the hard work it takes to “go fast” in swimming, what a great lifetime activity swimming provides, so thankful to be in the sport.
Parent’s and Athlete’s Practice starts at 4:15 pm, please meet at “White Paper Area” for pool set up and athlete check-in a few minutes early if possible. If you are new to GPS and 10 years or younger, please be ready by 5:00 and meet at the “White Paper Area”. There are a few exceptions to this request.
Our program is developed to reward swimmers for meeting OUR criteria of success. To us, success equals improvement. Rather than focusing on winning, or comparing one swimmer to another, we provide swimmers with incremental goals in all of their events, BASED ON THEIR INDIVIDUAL LEVEL OF ABILITY. These goals encourage our swimmers to focus on improving their times, and to swim all events, rather than specialize at an early age.
