Gateway City Aquatic Club

AVENGERS SWIM TEAM

The Gateway City Avengers is a year-round USA Swimming competitive swim team located in south St. Louis City.  This smaller swim club approach provides for individual coaching attention as well as plenty of training space which allows all swimmers to excel to their highest levels. The Gateway City Aquatic Club is a not-for-profit organization: a Christian sports ministry of Hole in the Roof Ministry Center.  The Avengers are supported by a team of highly motivated and dedicated parent volunteers as well as a group of private and corporate sponsors.  When a swimmer becomes a member of the team, they learn the meaning of courage, goal-setting,  dedication, determination, responsibility, sportsmanship and teamwork.  Our swimmers learn that you achieve what you work for, not what you wish for. Some Avenger swimmers may swim fast enough to become Olympic champions, but ALL Avenger swimmers will develop a life-long commitment to excellence, to discipline, to sacrifice, and high character living.  This team is coached and managed by Paul and Jamie Hamilton, long time homeschoolers and pastors of Hole in the Roof Ministry Center.  This team is not "homeschool exclusive" but is very homeschool friendly and welcoming of everyone.  

If you are between the ages of 5-18 and can swim 1 length of crawl stroke, 1 length of backstroke, and are deep water safe, we need you! Practices for the upcoming season begin Tuesday, September 6. For more information, visit our website at www.GatewayCityAquaticClub.org or call us at (314) 884-0824. Even the best swimmers had to start somewhere, so don't wait and begin your journey today!

New swimmers must have an evaulation for squad placement.
