The mission of GTSA is to build a superior aquatics program that teaches and trains all levels of swimmers, focusing on individual progress, sportsmanship, team unity and family participation.


To create a safe, nurturing and positive environment in supporting our swimmers to achieve the excellence in competitive swimming and translate the learning experience into real life.  GTSA is committed to providing a safe environment for all participants. To do so we have athlete protection policies and guidelines in place.


The objectives of GTSA shall include the following:

1.   To provide each swimmer an opportunity to develop good sportsmanship and to engage in a lifesaving, lifetime, recreational sport;

2.   To promote physical fitness and to encourage proper conditioning, as well healthy habits of each swimmer;

3.   To provide each swimmer opportunities for social, emotional, and educational development and to encourage peer and family participation in that development; and

4.   To involve each swimmer in age-group programs and competition in accordance with the standards of Florida Swimming, Inc. and United States Swimming, Inc.


The GTSA philosophy is to provide an outstanding swimming program which fosters the attributes of hard work, dedication, and determination in each of its swimmers. The program will also encourage its swimmers to have a healthy attitude about competition and to maintain a proper balance of fun and commitment. 

While the coaches recognize that there are many different capabilities among our swimmers, their aim is to produce swimmers who excel and who understand the efforts required to achieve that excellence. Therefore, the staff will make every effort to provide the atmosphere necessary, in both its coaching and its teaching, to assist each swimmer in achieving his/her goals.
