The Louisa Gators swim team is a summer recreational league available to all children from the ages of 5 to 18 years. It is not required that a swimmer be a resident of Louisa County. The swim season lasts from mid-May through the end of July. The team uses the Louisa County Aquatic Facility in cooperation with the Louisa Co. Parks & Recreation Dept. for its practices and meets. This facility is in the Industrial Air Park on Rt. 22 outside of Louisa. The away meets are at various facilities in Charlottesville.
This program is designed to teach and improve swimming skills for each child to ultimately master the four competition strokes, to build self-confidence in each individual's participation in swim meets, to promote team spirit and support all team members, to learn and exhibit good sportsmanship and learn competition with other teams. The Louisa Gators swim team is a family oriented activity, as parental participation is required for swim meets and fund-raising. Picnics are a regular part of the swim program where families get to know each other and swimmers receive the ribbons awarded at the swim meets.
Interested swimmers are encouraged to attend one of the Swim Team registration meetings in order to meet the coaching staff and try on team swim suits (required for all swimmers - not included in the registration fee).
