Registration and Rates

Our team is organized by a committee of volunteers. Only our coaching staff are paid. Please be patient with us.

Returning Swimmers:

March 20 through April 11 was priority registration for returning swimmers. After accepting new swimmers, we are able to re-open registration. There are limited spaces in most age groups. These spots are now available for returning swimmers who might have changed their mind about swimming, or families who forgot to register earlier. We need all summer 2017 swimmers registered no later than May 8.

If you swam for CGST previously, you may click here to register. Families registering multiple swimmers at one time must load them all into the cart before paying, in order to receive sibling discount.

(Siblings who want to join our team for the first time are still considered "new swimmers". Please read below.)


New Swimmers:

Evaluations were held April 13-15 this year. Thank you to the many families who came out to meet us. Emails were sent on 4/17 to all swimmers who attended evaluations.

We have only limited spaces in certain age groups. If you were unable to make evaluations but wish to join the team as a new swimmer, please contact Coach Alex at



REMINDER: We can no longer offer registration refunds. Please make sure you and your swimmer can meet the general expections as outlined on our home page and can commit to the swim team for the entire summer season prior to registering.

Below are the CGST rates for 2017, which give the swimmer access to ALL practices, meets, and team events. What you see is what you pay! We also incur the credit card processing fee instead of passing it along to you.

  • first swimmer in family - $155
  • second sibling - $130
  • third sibling - $120
  • fourth (fifth, sixth, ...) sibling - $110

We do offer scholarships to swimmers who cannot afford to pay full price. Scholarships are awarded based on need. You can download an application here: SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION FORM

IN ADDITION, each swimmer MUST have an active YMCA membership to gain membership to the pool. Membership is handled by the YMCA. Please contact Jeri Evans at the Y directly for more information: 434-205-4380 or

Your options for membership are: 

  • Family Membership, which is $69/month with a one time joining fee of $100 
  • Youth Membership, which is $22/month with a one time joining fee of $25
  • Special Youth Gator Summer Membership, which is a flat fee of $78.50. This gives the swimmer a full youth membership only during the summer swim team season. This does not extend to siblings or parents. If parents/siblings plan to watch practice, that is fine, but they will need to pay the Daily Pass Rate in order to swim in pool.

Half-price joining fees and the Youth Gator Summer Membership can be purchased by coordinating with Jeri Evans at the Y.
