Swim Team Meets & Activities

We are more than swimming:  We are family, friends, and tradition in Farragut, Tennessee!

Our summer swim team season runs for 8 weeks from the week after Memorial Day through most of July and consists of 8 meets, various SUPER FUN team building activities by age group in addition to practice, and an awards banquet celebrating the accomplishments of every swimmer. The meet schedule consists of 1 intrasquad, 5 dual, and 2 championship meets in the Knoxville area. 

We typically have about 200 swimmers and rely on strong parental support to make this team run like clockwork:  Every family commits to working meet shifts and serving on a committee.

Swim Team Fees

Registration fees for residents of VG subdivision are $160 for the first swimmer and $135 for additional swimmers in the family.   Nonresident fees are $200 for the first swimmer and $175 for additional swimmers in the family.  A Village Green Recreational Membership is not required for nonresidents but is an option for those who wish to pay resident rates and use the pools outside of swim practice.

VGST offers training and practice groups for swimmers of all ages (5-18) and ability levels. Our practices are age-specific and geared towards challenging and developing each individual to the best of HIS/HER abilities.   Practices are held every morning Monday – Friday at the Village Green Pool at corner of South Monticello Drive and 4 Seasons Lane.  We also offer a feeder program for ages 3-4.

The first two weeks of practice are very important for our Rookies, our first year swimmers!  They learn ALOT!  By the intrasquad meet the second Thursday of the season, these swimmers should be able to complete one lap of the pool unassisted using any type or combination of strokes.  Prorated fees will be refunded for those unable to meet swimming requirements after the first few weeks, if needed.  New swimmers aged 8-10 will be evaluated at the 11:30 practice.  Some first year 8-10 year olds may move to the 8 am practice.  Others may benefit by remaining in the 11:30 practice and learning more skills before attempting the 8 am practice. Any first-year 8-10 year old is welcome at the Friday 8 am practice.
