Note: Please pickup you child after practice at the side gate. The swim team must vacate the pool area by 9:00 and we will not be responsible for children remaining after their practice has ended. In addition, the swim team will not be responsible for delivering swimmers to Greenbelt summer camps after their practice has ended.

GMST and the Aquatic Center

The Greenbelt Swim Team is not affiliated or "part of" the Greenbelt Aquatic Center. During the fall, winter, and spring GMST leases the swim lanes for practices. During the summer, GMST is a "City Sponsored Organization" and thus the swim team has been granted use of the Aquatic Center during designated times. In general, GMST has use of the Aquatic Center before it is open to the public. Along with all other patrons of the Aquatic Center, GMST is bound to adhere to the Center's rules and regulations.

The Aquatic Center Staff would like to remind swimmers and their parents:

  • For swim practices held during the week from 4:55 to 5:55 p.m. - all swimmers must sign in at the main desk.

  • Rules of the Aquatic Center do apply during swim practices.

  • Only swim parents who submit their Aquatic Center membership card may enter the indoor pool and wait during swim practice. And please remember – no shoes allowed.

  • After practice please do not wait for your swimmer in the hallway outside the lockers. It creates congestion in that area for all our patrons. Instead, please meet your swimmer in the observation area, lobby area near the main desk or outside.

  • When swim practices switch to the morning sessions, all swimmers must enter and leave practice from the side gate not through the main area of the Aquatic Center. If an exception must be granted to you, please make this arrangement with the manager of the Aquatic Center Staff. Her office is near the main desk.

  • As Greenbelt's Summer Camps begin use of the pool at 9 a.m. on weekdays all GMST swimmers must be vacated from the pool area by that time.

  • After swim meets, please do not come into the indoor pool to swim until you have paid for admission or submitted your membership card at the check-in desk.

Please remember to follow these guidelines while at the pool. GMST is committed to maintaining our good working relationship with the Aquatic Center.
