City Swordfish Swim Team

Swim Meet Swimmer

City Swim Team

New Swimmers, if you are looking to participate on the Swordfish team we take new swimmers in May for our summer season.  Information will come out this spring for our sign-up day. [You must try out by swimming 25 meters freestyle and 25 meters backstroke.]

Indoor Season, registered participants from our previous Summer season are eligible to participate in the following Fall, Winter, and Spring sessions.  Our indoor season runs from September – May.  Keep an eye out for each session online.

Junior Flippers is a great prep practice program for those that swim for another JSL team, previous Swordfish that didn’t register for the summer team, and kids that just want to be stronger in the water.  [Must be able to swim 50 meters freestyle and 50 meters backstroke and are 8+ in age.]  We have seasonal sign-ups online.


The City Swim team is Charlottesville’s only municipal swim club, dedicated to providing all City children and young people, ages 5 – 18, with an opportunity to enjoy the friendship and good healthy fun of a swim team. As a member of the Jefferson Swim League, our team will participate this 2023 season in 6 weekly dual swim meets; home & away meets will be held on Wednesdays and the End of the Season CHAMPS swim meet the last full weekend of July. Our home swim meets are held at Washington Park Pool during the summer. To join participants must be able to pass the City Swim Team test.
