Welcome to the Fairview Seahorses Swim Team!
The Fairview Swim Team competes during the summer season in the Jefferson Swim League. The League is composed of 17 teams from the greater Charlottesville, VA area. During the months of June and July, head-to-head meets are held against other teams in Fairview's division. The league competition culminates in a league-wide two-day championship swim meet.
Anyone wishing to participate on the Fairview Swim Team must be a Fairview member and or an eligible Fairview employee or volunteer. Our swim team is open to any child beginning with children in the six and under age group, all the way up to age 18. Per Jefferson Swim League rules, swimmers may participate in JSL swim meets beginning at age 5 (note: for the 2021 season, swimmers ages 7-18 may participate in JSL meets. Younger swimmers may participate in intrasquad meets). Participation in swim meets is not required, but is encouraged. Swimmers do not need to be able to swim the entire length of the pool at the beginning of the season, but should be comfortable in the water.
The summer season has practices twice daily. Morning practice emphasizes conditioning and technique. Afternoon practice is for smaller group work on starts, stroke technique, and turns. Swimmers may attend as few or as many practices a week as they'd like. Please see the practice schedule page for practice times by age group.
