Learn the Sport

Swimmers in the Gups group are introduced to ABSC, USA Swimming, and the sport as a whole!

We teach the four competitive strokes so swimmers become swim meet-ready, and swimmers learn the ins and outs of what it's like to be a member of our team.

Gups are encouraged to participate in USA Swimming sanctioned meets, so swimmers in this group should be able to complete at least 1 25-yard lap of each stroke. For those unable to do so, we recommend our Bulldog Swim School! Note** meets are not required for the Gups.

To learn more about the Gups or group or how to register, email Mike Radford. Also see our Join the Club page. .
