PVYA - Potomac Valley Youth Association, Inc.

Welcome to PVYA Swimming!

As part of the Frederick Summer Swim League (FSSL) we encourage informal, friendly team competition at the neighborhood pool level while providing our youth the opportunity to develop athletic skills, positive sportsmanship, and understanding of teamwork, and an appreciation for the relationship between effort and success in a wholesome and fair atmosphere.


Registration for the 2022 PVYA River Rapids swim team will open in March.  We will practice and have home meets at the pool in Brunswick Crossing again this year.

Parent Orientation:
  • Parent Orientation will be held before the start of practice and will be virtual - date TBD.
  • We will also hold a pre-season virtual Q&A meeting in April - date TBD.
  • These meetings are recommended for returning families and any new families that are interested in joining the team.

New Swimmers:
  • If your child has never been on a swim team before, s/he must attend our New Swimmer Evaluation.  These will be held during the first two days of practice.
  • Each swimmer must be able to swim any stroke (including doggy paddle), at least 25 yards (one length of the pool) and demonstrate that they are not afraid of the water.
