usas logoTsunami Swimming is a member of Virginia Swimming and USA Swimming. Tsunami competes at the local, state, and national levels. Swimmers gain strength and endurance through practices, confidence through competition, and bonds of friendship through the close-knit team structure. 

The competitive team is divided into four practice groups. Scroll down for full descriptions and practice schedules:

  • The Novice group is for beginning, 12 and younger, and first-year swimmers who cannot swim all the competitive strokes independently but would like to begin competing.
  • The Intermediate group is for 13 and younger swimmers who can swim all strokes legally and are learning the concepts of training and competition.
  • The Junior group is for more advanced swimmers working towards High School or senior swimming competition that have demonstrated a good work ethic and are looking to step up their training.
  • The Senior group is for older swimmers who are serious about the sport and are striving to be competitive on a State or National level.
