Virginia Gators Swim Club

The Virginia Gators Swim Club is a confederation of developmental swim teams that promote personal excellence through competitive swimming.

In Central Virginia, we offer teams in Charlottesville at the Fairview Pool, Crozet at the Crozet Park Aquatic Fitness Center, and Waynesboro at the Waynesboro YMCA. The teams are separate entities, but provide an enhanced swimmer experience through a cooperative framework.

According to the CDC there is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of pools and hot tubs. Proper operation, maintenance, and disinfection (e.g., with chlorine and bromine) of pools and hot tubs should remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19.  See the press release here.
