FIRST COLONY GATORS
Home of the First Colony Gators
The First Colony Gators are members of the Southwest Houston Summer Recreational Swim League, a group of 20+ teams swimming in Southwest Houston and nearby suburbs.
The team was started in 1980 with 23 swimmers. We now have approximately 200 swimmers on the team every year. The league is open to swimmers aged 4 to 18 on May 31st of the year. The team practices and holds home meets at the Colony Grant Lap pool located at 2475 Robinsons Ferry.
Our season practices usually start after school either the last week of April or first week in May. They then move to mornings when school ends and continue through mid July.
We typically have 6 or more coaches who frequently get in the water while teaching the younger groups. This is a great place for your kids to learn to swim. We have literally taught thousands of kids to swim over the years.
Our meets are held on Monday nights usually starting the first Monday after school ends. Our season consists of five dual meets. The dual meets are followed by a division meet of champions (MOC) and finally the fastest swimmers from each division compete in a league wide All-Stars Meet.
