Fayson Lakes is Hosting the A Championships This Year

The Fayson Gators Swim Team Board would like to inform the membership that we will be hosting the A Championship meet on August 10, 2019, and we are in need of many volunteers. Please Note: The Beach will be "Closed" That Day. This fabulous event allows us to showcase our new swimming lanes and beautiful facility! It's also a wonderful opportunity to get involved and show your community spirit! There are many committees needing help. They include: Security, Communications, Equipment, Facility, Event Management, Food Concessions, Fund Raising, and Parking. Planning for the Championships is underway so please consider lending a hand. Let us know ASAP if you can help by sending an email to malonerobin2@gmail.com or speak to any swim team board member.

We are looking forward to a wonderful event!

A Season to Remember

The 2018 swim season was a banner one for the Gators and their families! The unveiling of our fabulous new pool with its unique touches such as custom starting blocks, a personalized brick walkway and original artwork by former Gator, Stephen Zechmeister, made us all proud. Our facility is truly the envy of all in our area and we cannot thank all of the volunteers enough for their hard work and dedication to our community. It was wonderful to showcase our swimmers in our brand new pool as we welcomed the league to host the Coaches' Choice invitational.

Huge thanks go out to our coaches Steve and Mackenzie! The service they provide our team is immense and it looks like they have fun while doing it! Parent volunteers play an integral role in a successful season. Whether it was timing, marshaling, setting up or breaking down during meets, or serving as a chair or volunteer for one of our social events, our parents always make it fun. Your participation made for a great summer. Special thanks to all who sent in pictures for our end-of-season slideshow and to Tom Connelly for compiling them with fantastic music.

Lastly, how do we thank a coach that has dedicated so many summers to our kids? From the bottom of our hearts - that's how! Steve Papendick helped raise countless Gator swimmers as well as fostered the love of swimming and summer fun! He has also molded the heart of this team, instilling community values, respect for our competitors and a great balance of summer fun and competition. Thank you, Coach Steve! We wish you leisurely summers and look forward to cheering on the team with you in the stands.

Wishing all Gators and their families a happy, successful and healthy school year. Just keep swimming!
