AFC Swim Team

The AFC Tigers compete in the Northern Virginia Swimming League (NVSL) Division 9 and welcome swimmers ages 5-18. Team participation is a great way to meet new friends, improve strokes and have fun! The swim team consists of a Main Team and Mini-Tigers:
  • Main Team swimmers are typically ages 7 and older and can swim laps for 30+ minutes, do side breathing for freestyle and basic backstroke. Swimmers should also be able to tread water for one minute
  • Swim team is not a swim lesson program. We’ll help your swimmer become a better swimmer, but in fairness to the other swimmers on the team, and especially for the safety of your swimmer during practices, we must insist that all swim team members be capable and comfortable in the water.
  • “Mini-Tigers” program is for novice swimmers ages 5-8.  Evaluations are required.
  • Register for Swim Team (for payment and waiver signoffs) on our club site here.  Once you register, you will be directed to sign up/sign in to a Swimtopia account. For more information visit the AFC Tigers Team website.
