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. Our team practices at the Fairview Swim and Tennis Club pool at 707 Belvedere Drive in Charlottesville, under our climate-controlled Gator Dome. Head Coach JJ Bean, in his 22nd year leading the Gators, is committed to providing a personal approach to helping every swimmer improve every day. 

USA Swimming is committed to fostering a fun, healthy, and safe environment for all its members, and in 2010, it formally implemented a comprehensive Safe Sport program to respond to and prevent instances of abuse and misconduct within the sport of swimming.  Since then USA Swimming Safe Sport has worked tirelessly to educate members, put policies in place, and empower LSCs and clubs to create the best possible environments for all members.

The Virginia Gators Swim Club fully endorses and supports USA Swimming’s Safe Sport and Safety programs by helping to provide these resources for our members.
