Carrollwood Village Swim Team (CVST) is a non-profit (501(c)3) year round swim program and is a member of USA Swimming, which is part of the United States Olympic Committee. Our objectives are to promote competitive and recreational swimming, and to provide a program of instruction for the development of swimmers of all abilities. Swimming teaches self-discipline, sportsmanship, commitment, all of which help to build character and all qualities that help to build our youth which will help them long into their futures.
As part of the teams desire to promote swimming and remain financially sound, we host two events each year at the Northshore Pool in St. Petersburg. The first is the Boys & Girls Club National Swimming Championships, held in April, and the second is the Tampa Bay Swim Classic, held the beginning of June each. These two events are a major source of funding for our program and a chance to offer two sound competitive swimming events for the Aquatics Community.
The Boys & Girls Club National Championships plays host to Boys & Girls Clubs from across the Country, in fact, CVST is traditionally the only team from Florida in the event. this brings a great number of room nights to the area as well as restaurant needs for accommodate all those from out of town.
The Tampa Bay Swim Classic hosts 500-600 swimmers, along with their families, from throughout Central Florida, but primarily the Tampa Bay Area. This event also brings in room nights for about 200 participants and their families.
These are both successful long running events held here annually in the Bay Area and we look to many of our local businesses to partner with us in the production of these two events.
