The Virginia Gators is a developmental swim team that promotes personal excellence through competitive swimming.

We offer teams in Charlottesville at the Fairview Pool, Crozet at the Crozet Park Aquatic Fitness Center, and Waynesboro at the Waynesboro YMCA.

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.

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