Swim Team 

** updated on January 03, 2021 **
2021 Sharks Summer Swim Team is anticipating a return this summer.  We are working closely with our RVA Board and the Atlanta Swimming Association to determine the specifics as to what our summer swim season will be like.  Registration is NOT open.  As updates are available they will be posted to this page.  Please check back often. 

** updated on May 17, 2020 **
2020 Sharks Summer Swim Team season has been suspended.  A letter has been sent to the membership regarding this difficult but necessary decision.  We hope to offer some fun and exciting opportunities to our Sharks later this summer.  Thank you for your understanding.

For swim meet schedule specifics, RSVPs and Volunteering please check back in mid-March.

RVA is the home of our competitive swim team, the Roxboro Sharks. The Roxboro Sharks swim team has been in existence since approximately 1964. In its early days, the Sharks competed in the Dekalb County league. Today, we are a member of the Atlanta Swim Association – www.atlantaswimming.com – one of the largest recreational swim leagues in the country. The team’s objective is to meet every child where they are – whether that is to gain proficiency in swimming, to perfect swimming strokes, to giving them a taste of competitive swimming or to provide a fun and social way to start summer. The team provides employment opportunities for teenagers with first preference going to the children of member families. Swim team is a family experience and we welcome all to give it a try!

To be on the Roxboro Sharks Swim Team:

• Your family must be RVA members in good standing.
• Your child must be 5 years of age by June 1st.
• The maximum age to compete is age 18 as of June 1st (exceptions are made for graduating high school seniors over the age 18) 

The complete and most current schedule is available on the RVA calendar. The general outline of the schedule is that the team is active from mid-May until the end of June/early July. 

There are 5 dual meets per season—starting just after Memorial Day and generally on Tuesday evenings with a 4 p.m. arrival and a prompt 5:30 p.m. start. The season concludes with a divisional and final meet for the entire league just prior to July 4th.

Practice begins mid-May in the afternoons (M-Th) with age groups scheduled as
• 5 & 6 year olds (generally called 6 and Unders)  |  4:30 - 5:00 p.m.
• 7 & 8 year olds  |  5:00 - 5:45 p.m.
• 9 & 10 year olds  |  5:45 - 6:30 p.m.
• 11 & up  |  6:30 - 7:15 p.m. 

After Atlanta Public Schools is released for summer, we switch to morning practices (M-F) with age groups scheduled as
• 7 & 8 year olds  |  9:00 - 9:45 a.m.
• 9 & 10 year olds  |  9:45 - 10:30 a.m.
• 11 & up  |  10:00 - 11:00 a.m.
• 5 & 6 year olds (6 and Unders)  |  11:00 - 11:30 a.m. (On some Fridays we will have "Mini-meets" for this age group at this time.)

Some limited evening practices are scheduled on Monday and Thursday. 
See the calendar for specific dates and please be aware that the times may be adjusted depending upon the registration numbers per age group.
