Swim Team

    Gower Estates Pool has one of the largest and most successful swim teams in Greenville County. We have been division champions over 25 times. This is a record of which every member of the swim team can be proud. It is the result of endless hours of practice coupled with a strong commitment from swimmers, coaches, and parents.
 
    Gower Swim Team is part of the Swim Association Invitational League (SAIL) which began in the summer of 1964. The organization was originally was called PYA (Parent/Youth Association) and consisted of community pools who wished to compete. In 1965 it was renamed SAIL and with the rapid growth in communities it was split into three divisions by the early seventies.  SAIL has continued to grow and in 2005 it had as many as 38 pools and represented by 30 teams in six divisions: Red, White, Blue, Purple, Green and Gold.
 
    Gower is part of the Red Division. Each division hosts a divisional meet in addition to their dual meets. The teams (Gower, Greenville Country Club, Sugar Creek, Stone Lake and Devenger) within the Red Division compete for points during that meet. At the end of the divisional meet, the team scoring the highest points is named Red Division Champion.
 
    The goals of our Swim Team are:
  • To Have Fun
  • To Build Self-Esteem
  • To Improve Swimming Skills
  • To Generate Healthy Competition, Respect and Sportsmanship
  • To Encourage Self-Discipline and Commitment
  • To Respect Individual Differences
  • To Promote Camaraderie and Team Spirit
