The Virginia Gators of Charlottesville Swim Club is a nonprofit, tax-exempt swim club, operating out of the Gatordome at the Fairview Swim and Tennis Club. Founded in 1999 by Head Coach J.J. Bean and a group of devoted parents, we provide a variety of aquatic opportunities for central Virginia community members of all ages, interest and skill-levels.
The Gatordome is home to the Virginia Gators of Charlottesville, a year-round, USA Swimming Level 1 swim team providing the most extensive competitive swim program in the area offering a foundation of success for every child. Gator swimmers learn invaluable lifelong lessons about teamwork and sportsmanship whether they are in a developmental program for young and beginning swimmers or part of our elite national training group.
We also provide much-needed pool space for area high school swim teams, synchronized swimming, scuba diving, boy scouts and many other programs.
