Virginia Gators of Charlottesville

Since 2000, the Virginia Gators of Charlottesville has offered high-quality swim training from beginner to elite with a focus on balancing physical, social, and emotional development in assisting swimmers to reach their personal goals. Head Coach JJ Bean, in his 23rd year leading the Gators, is committed to providing a personal approach to helping every swimmer improve every day. 

This Fall we will begin practices on September 6th at Fairview Pool until September 18th. We will then move to the Key West Swim Club outdoor, heated pool until September 30th and finally to our fall indoor home at Crow Pool on Rose Hill Drive in Charlottesville until the Fairview renovations are completed and our Bubble goes up again. 

Volunteer Requirement

The gifts of volunteer time and financial support are crucial to the success of our small, non-profit organization, especially with the added strains that Coronavirus has placed on our club. However, we recognize that these same strains are affecting all of our families as well. For this reason, among others, we will no longer require a volunteer commitment, or charge families who are not able to volunteer. However, we do continue to have needs that need to be met by volunteers or increased family donations or financial support. We are reorganizing our volunteer categories to offer specific ways that you can select a way to help the Gators as early as when you register, and know what that volunteer job will entail throughout the season. We also plan to reemphasize our passive fundraisers and offer new, creative ways to financially support the Gators, such as through gifts-in-kind, partnerships with your family business, or offering physical help to the Gators that will allow us to reduce expenses. We hope you will join with us in finding creative and meaningful ways to help our team.
