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 Certified Officials are the backbone of all swim meets, ensuring a safe and fair competition. Parents are encouraged to join the ranks of Officials by completing training and volunteering to officiate at meets. Anyone can become an Official, even if you were never a swimmer. It's easy to learn and way more fun than sitting in the stands! If you are already a JSL Official, it's even easier to step up to USA Swimming certification.
