Home of the Salem Fields Sunfish!
Welcome to the home page of the Salem Fields Sunfish Swim Team. Visit this page often for all the latest news and information on the Sunfish season.
The Salem Fields Swim Team is based in Fredericksburg, Virginia. We are part of the Rappahannock Swim League. The team has roughly 75 swimmers, ages 5-18.
The swim program is designed to focus on the development of young swimmers. Our athletes learn to swim competitively, have fun, and exhibit good sportsmanship. Through the hard work of our coaches, athletes, and parents the team won the season and division championship in 2012, 2013 and 2016. The team is excited for the 2021 season!

NEW INFORMATION for 2021:
This year we will be having two registrations. One is for the competition team and one for noncompetitive. The prices are different for each registration. Once you register under one registration, you are unable to change. This is because we need to turn in rosters for those competing to the RSL and pay an RSL fee.
Swimmers on the competition team will participate in up to 6 meets (3 home and 3 away). Swimmers on the noncompetitive team will attend practices 5 days a week for the entire swim season, but will not participate in any meets.
Changes related to COVID for the 2021 season for competition swim: (any of the following protocols could be changed without notice) We will have 3 sessions during a swim meet to allow for smaller number of people on deck. Volunteers will be allowed on deck, but other spectators will not be allowed. We will try to fill slots for volunteers with parents to be able to watch their child swim, so will have 3 sessions of volunteers. Parents will be allowed to attend practice. Mask will be required for anyone on the pool deck. A waiver will be need to turned in by May 10th.
