Welcome to the Glenmore Swim Team!

Cheers to an exciting season in 2024!


We are very excited to announce that the Tornadoes will again be led by Head Coach Luke Noble. Luke is a UVA graduate, former PE teacher at Stone Robinson, and currently the year-round Sports Program Manager here at Glenmore. Luke is also a former City Swordfish swimmer and has 12+ years of coaching experience. 

Swim Team Registration

Registration opens Monday, April 1st and is currently limited to families who are Club members and grandchildren of Club members in good standing. Please complete all necessary forms by Sunday, May 26th and drop them off at the Fitness Center.

There is a 5-year-old minimum age limit (must be 5 by June 1st) to be a registered swimmer in the Jefferson Swim League (JSL). In the interest of safety, a child must be able to swim the freestyle unassisted for 25 meters before entering a League meet.

The registration fee will be $235 for the first swimmer, $225 for the second swimmer, and $215 for each additional swimmer/s. This fee covers our team’s expenses--coaches’ salaries and taxes, certifications and background checks, team trophies, donuts for Thursday fun practice, as well as other miscellaneous expenses. You will be directly billed by the club. (This fee does not include the team suit, which is encouraged, but not required).

As experienced swim parents know, summer swimming is a participation sport. All families with swimmers on the team will need to volunteer at the swim meets. A few of the positions require training--most don’t. But all the volunteers are critical to a successful (and quick) meet. Check the JSL site here for additional volunteer descriptions.

The Glenmore Swim Team

Summer is just around the corner and planning is in full swim for the 2024 Glenmore Tornadoes swim season. The swim team is an excellent opportunity for your child(ren) to learn how to swim all four strokes, improve their swimming skills and /or challenge themselves to improve. Our outstanding coaches have strong swimming backgrounds, are dedicated to the Glenmore swim program, and share a passion and enthusiasm for the sport.

Our Mission

The primary mission of the Glenmore Tornadoes is to provide the children/grandchildren of members at The Club at Glenmore a competitive summer swimming opportunity. Children 5-18 years old will be encouraged to challenge their personal fitness level in a spirited, team oriented environment. The team is supported by a parent committee, parent volunteers, and a coaching staff that model good sportsmanship and a cooperative spirit with the end goal being youth fitness, summer fun and community fellowship. The safety of our swimmers, coaches and families is our number one priority this summer. We are working closely with the Jefferson Swim League to ensure all necessary safety measures are being met. Go Tornadoes!!!
