This year the Great Falls Rapids youth swim team will be competing in Division 9 of the Northern Virginia Swim League (NVSL).

Enrollment is on-going for club members, 18 and under, who can swim a single lap without causing alarm to the swimmer or the coach.  For swimmers not yet ready for strong competition, we offer a developmental team; the Mini Rapids. The coaching staff will help the youngest swimmers with the basics of stroke technique while building confidence for future competition.

NVSL youth swim teams have produced at least 7 Olympic swimmers. The first was Melissa Belote, a three-time gold medalist at the 1972 Olympics at the age of 15. Great Falls Swim Team has our own US Olympic Swimmer in Kate Zeigler, who swam for the Great Falls Rapids kids' swim team, setting many still unbroken NVSL records.

Great Falls Swim & Tennis Club is proud of our long-standing association with the NVSL and for being the only NVSL pool in Great Falls. Our swim team is one of the most spirited and fun teams in the NVSL and we believe our pool is one of the best in the league.
