If you have a passion for building lifelong friendships, sharing your passion for swimming with other students on campus and across the country, and helping to set new program records for excellence every year, GCU Club Swimming is the place for you!

GCU Club Swimming members participate in several events, including the breaststroke, backstroke, freestyle, butterfly and individual medley.  GCU Club Swimming creates a fun and competitive environment that has yielded success in and out of the water, since we’ve continued to increase our roster numbers each year. In 2019-2020, our swimmers qualified for over 30 national events, and last season, despite the pandemic, the team placed second at the College Club Swimming Virtual Nationals.

GCU Club Swimming’s Travel Team usually competes in meets from October through April.
