Louisa Gators Swim Team

Are you already looking for things to do this upcoming summer? Come join the Louisa GATORS Swim Team! The team is open to all area children ages 5 through 18 (age as of 6/1/20). Anyone can be on the team...previous experience is not necessary; the Louisa Gators will teach you what you need to participate! All you need is a willingness to get wet and ability to go under water comfortably. (Note: swimmers who are afraid to get their face wet or put their head under water should register for LCPRT Learn to Swim program.) The Gators compete in the Jefferson Swim League (JSL) against other teams in the Charlottesville area. Team practices are held most weekdays in the morning and/or evening at the Louisa County Aquatic Facility from May 27th through July 25th. Specific practice times are based on the swimmer’s age and ability. We have 7 swim meets including the Championship Meet the last weekend in July. In general, swim meets are held on Wednesday nights with the exception of the Championship Meet. 

The Gators are a family oriented swim team. Parent participation is REQUIRED. We provide activities for the whole family throughout the summer. We like competition, but the Gator experience is not all about winning. We focus on being part of a team, improving skills and self-esteem, being active, having fun, practicing good sportsmanship, and ALWAYS doing our best! The more involved the family becomes, the better the experience! As soon as a swimmer is deemed ready (swimming the length of the pool with minimal stopping) they are eligible to compete. Swimmers who are unable to swim this length should register for the Gator Prep Team which provides more one-on-one instruction. Gator Prep Team swimmers move onto the team as they are ready or at the end of the program.

Registration fee includes: 9 weeks of practice, team t-shirt, team swim cap and JSL league fees. Registration fees for the 2020 season will vary depending upon when a swimmer registers. Swimmers who register by March 31st will be eligible for the Early Gator rate of $175 per swimmer. After the Early Gator deadline, the price will be $200 for all swimmers. Our fees have gone up a bit due to increase in league fee. Financial assistance is available through the swim team for those who qualify. Additional information and all registration forms will be available on the swim team website www.louisagators.org in December.

Registration forms and fees may be completed and mailed to the swim team at the following address: POGA, PO Box 1373, Louisa, VA 23093. The Gators accept payment via cash, check or credit card. Forms and fee may also be submitted to the LCPRT office during regular business hours PROVIDING you are paying via CHECK made payable to POGA. In addition, the swim team will be accepting forms and payments at the Betty Queen Center on March 30th and May 13th from 6:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. All registration fees should be paid in full by June 5, 2020.

Gator Prep: The Louisa Gator Prep Team is designed for swimmers (ages 5-18) who are comfortable in the water but may be unable to swim the length of the pool and/or need instruction on specific skills. Swimmers should be willing to put face and head underwater, float on back and stomach and maneuver through the water in some manner. (Note: swimmers who are afraid to get their face wet or put their head under water should register for LCPRT Learn to Swim program.) Prep Team members are considered a part of the Louisa Gators and are expected to progress to the Gator Swim Team at the end of the Prep week. Specific information including schedule and price will be available in January on the team website at www.louisagators.org
