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.
