The Virginia Gators of Charlottesville Summer Prep Program is a great way to prepare swimmers, of all ages and abilities, for the upcoming summer swim season. Swimmers will get a head-start on the summer by training with JSL championship-winning coaches, from The Fairview Swim & Tennis Club, to improve stroke, technique, racing strategy, starts and turns, and overall conditioning. This program is suited for swimmers who are looking to grow, learn, and have fun, while preparing for a successful summer of swimming. Swimmers may choose any 3 weekdays for their practices (Advancing group may select up to 5 days), but it is suggested to stick to a consistent schedule for the benefit of the swimmer and coaches.
