Swim Team

(DUE TO COVID – We are unable to register and go ahead with the scheduled teams practice at this time.  We are updating the Membership as we get additional guidelines from the CDC and public health.). Please check back periodically and look for communication via email as we receive it.)

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 10 years in a row 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 on the Membership and Teams Communication page under the Membership Tab of the website. Note that you must be logged in as a member to access this page.

Swimmers may NOT practice or compete with any other team on or after May 15 in order to be eligible for the State Summer Club Swim Meet. This includes not swimming unattached in a USA swim meet. A swimmer may compete in a charity-type event with permission of the Colorado State Summer Club Swimming Association Board.

If you have any questions about the Metro League or CSSCSA bylaws, please contact our head coach Brian Davenport.

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 1-2 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. For each volunteer session, families will earn one guest pass. Click here to sign up.
