Swim Team – 2022

The Virginia Vale Swim Team is one of the most successful in the state by almost any measure. The team has won the Colorado Summer State Championship for more than 10 years with countless club, league and state individual and relay records set (and broken) each year.

The best measures of success are seen each summer day as big kids cheer on little kids, and the little kids dream of growing up to be just like the big kids. The VV Dolphins are second to none!

Registration must be completed and payment submitted online prior to any child getting into the pool for practice or participating in any other team activity.  Only VV members in good standing may participate on the VV swim team. No exceptions.

Team communications including coaches’ contact information can be found in the Parent Handbook on the Teams Communication page (scroll to the bottom). Note that you must be logged in as a member to access this page.

Parent Volunteers

Parent volunteers are essential to the success of the VV swim team, especially home meets. All parents should plan to volunteer a minimum of 2 shifts per swimmer each summer. Volunteer needs include timers, hospitality, runners, event numbers, and ribbons. In addition, volunteers are needed for social events and photos.
