VIRGINIA HILLS TIDAL WAVE

1961-2024

Proud member of the Northern Virginia Swimming League (NVSL)

The Virginia Hills pool swim team, the Tidal Wave, is one of the oldest teams in the 102-team Northern Virginia Swimming League (NVSL).  Please visit the NVSL website for the latest league news, schedules, results, and standings.  Follow NVSL on Twitter and Instagram @swimNVSL.

Swim Team, especially the Tidal Wave, is a one-of-a-kind summer experience that brings children (and parents) of all ages together to have fun; improve skills, endurance, and confidence in the water; and enjoy each other’s company and the camaraderie of a great team sport.

In 2024, the Tidal Wave swim team registration is open to pool members age 4 to 18. There are no try-outs but for swimmers new to the team, ages 4-8, there will be a quick assessment to see if your child is a rookie or an 8U swimmer.

After-school practices begin the Tuesday after Memorial Day at the pool. Different times are set aside for each age group. Once school ends, practices switch to weekday mornings with condensed Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings still offered for 12 & Under kids only in day camps or daycare.

Swim meets begin on Saturday mornings in mid-June, and run through July. There are competitive meets (A meets) on Saturday mornings and developmental meets (B meets) on Monday evenings.

Please review the information on the website and contact the Team Rep with any questions.

Remember, you must be a Virginia Hills Pool member to join the swim team.
