2024 Summer Upper School Athletics

Geneva has many opportunities for upper school students to continue their athletic training over the summer.

All students participating in summer workouts, open gyms, pick-up games, summer leagues, etc. must have an up-to-date Athletic Clearance package with The Geneva School named as a school and the specific sports listed. Coaches will check that the Athletic Clearance is in compliance before an athlete is permitted to participate.


SOCCER SUMMER PICK-UP GAMES

  • Tuesday and Thursdays (weather permitting), 6:30–8:00 pm (or until it gets dark) on the soccer practice field.
  • Beginning June 11 and ending August 1 (no game July 4).

Rising 6th–12th grade students, in addition to TGS alumni, are invited to participate in these summer pick-up games. Participants and parents will be added to a group text so cancellations due to weather can be communicated. Coaches Tracy Talesnick and Jimmy Hendrix will supervise the games.

If you have any questions, please use the contact form at the bottom of the page to reach out to Tracy Talesnick.

SWIMMING AND DIVING SUMMER TRAINING

Here are some recommendations for summer training for athletes who wish to participate with Geneva in the fall. Due to the fact that there is no facility on the TGS campus for our team to practice, all swimmers and divers must practice with a registered local club team.

  • Greater Orlando Aquatics Team (GOAT): Swimmers in the summer GOATS program, which runs June 3–July 12, will be taught the basics of competitive swimming, including stroke mechanics in all four strokes, racing starts, racing turns, and race strategy, in a safe and fun environment. The summer GOATS compete in intrasquad meets and are able to learn from nationally ranked college swimmers via mini clinics. The summer GOATS program is offered to children ages 4–14. All participants should be able to swim 25 yards without touching the bottom. They have in-water coaches providing safety as well as deck coaches. Practices are offered Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 6–7 pm at the Lake Howell Aquatics Center (less than 10 minutes from Geneva). Participants are allowed to attend as many days as desired. Program cost for the entire summer including a team T-shirt and a latex team racing cap is only $225. For more information, please visit their website.
  • Orlando Dive Academy: Orlando Dive Academy is located on International Drive. More more information, please visit their website.
