"Sports teaches you character, it teaches you to play by the rules, it teaches you to know what it feels like to win and lose-it teaches you about life." - Billie Jean King
"I wouldn't say anything is impossible. I think that everything is possible as long as you put your mind to it and put the work and time into it." - Michael Phelps
Swimming is one sport that requires lots of practice. Our Head Coach, Jamie Hamilton, always compares it to playing a musical instrument. "You aren't going to get any better at playing the piano if you don't practice it daily. The same goes for swimming."
Here at Gateway City Aquatic Club, we have practice squads set up for each level of swimming. Different squads practice for different amount of times, but everyone practices. Plus we have fun. "We like to make practicing fun because it can get really boring just staring at the black line on the bottom of the pool.", says Coach Hamilton.
Please see our Practice Schedule tab to view the different squad practice times and pricing.
