Victor’s Fall and Spring Meets
We host three United States Swimming (USA) sanctioned meets during the short course season. The Halloween Classic is held in October, the Victor New Year's Meet is held in January and the Winter Classic in February. These meets provide a significant amount of our revenue and allow us to keep the dues at a lower level. All Victor swimmers are expected to attend and all members are expected to work at these meets. We also host 1-3 meets during the long course season. There are deck fees and event fees for these meets.

Combo/Dual Meets
There are typically 4 dual meets from Mid-October to early March. The dual meets are usually held on Saturdays against one other club from the Genesee Valley Swim League. The swimmers compete in separate age groups: 8 & under, 10 & under, 12 & under and 13 & over, for both boys and girls. There is no additional charge for participating in these meets.

Invitational Meets
Throughout the year individual clubs in the Niagara LSC (NI) and United States Swimming (USA) sponsor Invitational meets. Invitationals are meets with many teams competing with each other. As a team, Victor Swim Club will enter many of these meets throughout the year. Attendance at these meets is highly recommended by the coaching staff and club. There are additional fees (Deck Fees, Event Fees, Meet Fees) for these meets.To find information aboout these fees, please refer to the meet announcement for each individual meet.

Annual Banquet
The banquet is to celebrate the end of the Short Course Season. Awards are given for performances during the year. (On hold due to Covid)

Fundraisers (3)
The VSC is planning three fundraisers for the season. All proceeds go back into our club to keep dues down and to purchase necessary equipment for the coaches and swimmers. The fundraisers include:

Fall Pie Sale Fundraiser
The Victor Swim Club holds a pie sale fundraiser shortly before Thanksgiving.


The Swim-A-Thon is a fund-raising event sponsored by the Victor Swim Club and sanctioned by United States Swimming (USA). Swimmers solicit a flat fee or pledges for each lap they swim. The money from past Swim-A-Thons has been used to buy and upgrade equipment. This is our major fundraising event, for which we seek support from the community.
