Virginia Gators of Charlottesville

In 2000, the Virginia Gators of Charlottesville Swim Club was formed to offer 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. Since that time, Head Coach JJ Bean, has been committed to providing a personal approach to helping every swimmer improve every day. Unfortunately, the Gators have been forced to take an indefinite hiatus due to the loss of access to our 23-year home at Fairview Swim Club. The lack of alternative pool space in the Charlottesville area has prevented us from continuing our programs at this time.  If you are looking for a swim program that shares our program values, we highly recommend the BASS Swim Team at Boar's Head and the Shenandoah Marlins Aquatic Club at the Crozet Park Pool. Coach JJ Bean will be assisting those programs where many of our swimmers will practice this winter. 

We thank Coach JJ, our Gator families past and present, our Virginia Gator sister teams, and the Charlottesville community for embracing and supporting our Club for the last 23 years. Keep on Swimming!
