Celebrating 55 Years Swimming

Celebrating 50 Years

The Gap State School Amateur Swimming Club (known as The Gap Gators) has a long and proud history. The club was formed in 1968 when families banded together to raise money to have the pool built on the current site at The Gap State School. Almost 50 years of active swimming and competition by children from The Gap community has taken place.   While the children are registered with Swimming Queensland under The Gap ASC Inc. our club is proudly known as The Gap Gators!  There are not many clubs around with the longevity such as ours and we look forward to swimming at The Gap State School pool for many years to come.

We encourage all families to join with the spirit that has seen swimmers try hard each week to do a personal best and enjoy the fun of “having a go”. Many of our Club swimmers over the years have also competed at the District, Regional, State, National and International level including a former breaststroke world record holder Rebecca Brown.

Building upon the success from the previous season we will continue with the following activities on Club Nights:-

  • Encourage our youngest swimmers to swim 25m with assistance if required
  • Having all four (4) strokes and Individual Medley on the program each week if time allows;
  • 25, 50 and 100m races in each of the strokes
  • “Record Challenges”, whereby swimmers may nominate that they are challenging to break a club record on Club Night;
  • Special/Memorial races – such as Rebecca Brown Relay, etc

In being accepted as a member of The Gap ASC Inc you are also agreeing to become involved with Club Night activities, and we look forward to your active involvement in canteen, timekeeping, BBQ duties and marshalling. Come and make yourself known to one of the Committee Members and we will ensure your inclusion. Many strong and enduring friendships have been made on pool deck amongst the parent groups over the years.

Your children will derive unquestionable friendship, fitness and skill development from their involvement and a lifetime connection with this wonderful sport. We are sure the more you get involved the more you will get out of it.
