The Pools at James River Country Club

Four luxurious pools back up to the historical James River leaving beautiful panoramic views in a peaceful environment. 

Multiple pools and a full-length lap pool used for swim meets, make swimming fun in the sun for all ages.  The cabana has a full-service grill, serving poolside food, making accommodations for a day away from everything else complete.

Summer barbecues, pool parties, live music and activities take place every weekend through the summer.  The pools and cabana are open from Memorial Day through Labor Day with hours of operation from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.  The Club is highly used during summer pool season by families, where good times are spent with friends.  Lifeguards are present during pool hours to make sure safety is at its highest level.

The River Ratz Swim Team

The River Ratz, our topnotch swim team, is a charter member of the Greater Peninsula Swimming Association (GPSA), and has won several league championships over the years. Every summer more than 100 youngsters come out to swim for our team in age groups ranging from six-and-under to fifteen-eighteen. Some of our swimmers have gone on to swim for Division I colleges, national and international meets, and the Olympic trials. But this team is not just about competition. It is about providing kids the opportunity to improve their swimming skills and socialize during the summer with activities such as pizza parties, water polo, swimming games, and an elegant end-of-summer banquet.
