Louisa Gators Summer 2020 Information

posted Mar 4, 2020, 1:40 PM by Louisa Gators Swim Team

Happy New Year Gator Families,

I hope you all are having a safe and fantastic school year.  Although it is January, I wanted to let you have the important Gator Information for the summer of 2020.  Hopefully, this will help you plan and maybe use your tax refund to pay early and get the reduced price offered throughout the spring.

I have a few important dates for you – regardless of whether you are returning or are a new family.  I am also including information about our group text option and team store for swim apparel.

Registration Fee Information:

Early Gator Price         $175 per swimmer through 3/31

Gator Price                  $200 per swimmer beginning 4/1 (no sibling discount)

Prep Team                  $90 per swimmer, you will receive $70 credit when swimmer progresses to team – remaining fees will be $105 if                                         registered by 3/31, $130 beginning 4/1.  Additional fees will be due when swimmer transfers to the team.

Payment Plan              In the event you are registering multiple swimmers you may agree to a payment plan.  Monthly payments are                                             expected (amount to be determined based on total due). All fees should be paid by June 5, 2020.   

Registration Meeting Information:

I will hold two meetings during which you can come in, complete ALL the paperwork needed, get answers to questions and pay fees.  Note – you do NOT need to attend any/all meetings and may also choose to register by mail using the attached registration form.  Forms are also available on the Gator website.  (

March 30 – Betty Queen Center, 6:30-7:30 PM, registration meeting to handle all paperwork.  Registration fee is $175 thru 3/31

May 13 – Betty Queen Center, 6:30 – 7:30 PM, registration meeting to handle all paperwork.  Registration fee is $200.

All registrations received after 3/31 will require a $200 registration fee per swimmer.

Payment by debit/credit card

We are in the process of updating our ability to accept payments by debit/credit card.   In the event you would like to make payment in this manner, please send me an email with your contact information (email, phone & address) as well as your swimmer’s information (name, gender, date of birth).  I will then send you the link to our Square account.


Each swimmer is required to provide $100 towards our fundraising efforts each summer.  Our team pays for guards, coaching staff, awards, swimmer registration fees and other expense.  Registration fees only cover a portion of costs each summer.   I will be distributing the 2020 sponsor form within the next few weeks.  Upon receipt, please distribute this to any business which you frequent (let me know so we do not inundate the same business).  Any sponsorships which you acquire will be credited towards your account.  

In the event you do not wish to solicit a sponsor, you can pay the $100 outright or participate in our fundraising efforts this summer.  Previous efforts have included selling raffle tickets.

Swim Team Practice

Morning & Evening practice will begin on 5/26.  Schedules will be available at registration meetings.  Prep Team will meet evenings from 5/26-6/5.

Swim Team Opening Picnic

We will be celebrating the 2020 season with a family picnic on May 29 at the Louisa County Aquatic Facility from 7-9 PM.  All families are invited, please bring a side dish & dessert!  Pool will be open so get ready to be wet!

Team Store

This year all suits & apparel will be available at our team store with the exception of our 2020 team t-shirt.  The team store can be accessed at

Our team suits are purple & black with our team logo.  Females will have the choice of two different suits, one with thin straps & one with thick straps.  Males have the choice of either design in jammers.  Please check the sizing guide if you are unsure what size you need.  NOTE – the turnaround time for suits is 3 weeks or more…please order EARLY!  Our first meet will probably June 10.

In addition to suits, you will see a variety of shirts, sweats, warm-ups and other items with our logo.  Any items you order from the website will be shipped directly to your home!  

I will continue to send updates and information via email as we get closer to practice beginning.  Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.  If you received this email and your swimmer(s) will not be returning this summer, let me know so that I can remove you from our email group.

Looking forward to seeing everyone soon!
