About Us

Our Mission


Our goal is to produce an environment in which everyone can enjoy and strive to realize the Olympic ideals of hard work, sportsmanship, competition and fitness. Ultimately swimmers will build self-confidence, self-discipline, integrity and courage that will last a lifetime.

 

Keeping Our Sport Safe & Fun


The safety of children and young people in our sport is paramount. We want swimming to be fun, enjoyable and safe for all. All of us in the Oceanside swimming community have a role to play in ensuring that we keep our proud sport as safe and enjoyable as possible.

 

Swimming For All

Oceanside Swim Club is committed to a "swimming for all" philosophy. OSC incorporates inclusion strategies in all aspects of the sport, creating opportunities for all USA Athletes to participate. Whether you choose to swim for fun and enjoyment, health and fitness, aspire to be a world champion or choose to be involved in a non-swimming role as a coach, official or volunteer, swimming provides many opportunities.

 

General Code of Conduct

Respecting others is the Number One rule at OSC. Always treat others as you would like to be treated yourself.

Volunteering



There are many ways to help out at Oceanside Swim Club. The more help we get, the smoother the team runs. As members, parents are required to complete 20 volunteer hours (per family) during the year. There are several ways to complete these hours including help with our Annual Pier Swim event, volunteering at aid stations, and participating in our fundraisers. We will notify families when volunteer opportunities become available. OSC depends on the donations from some of these events to keep our club running. We need everyone to help with these events throughout the year. The biggest fundraiser is the Annual Labor Day Pier Swim held every year on Labor Day weekend. Check out our website for more information. Families who are unable to complete the hours or wish to "buy out" of this volunteer hour requirements may do so. Please ask a board member for more information about this.  

 

Officials

Depending on the number of swimmers we send to a swim meet, OSC may be required to provide an official(s) for the meet. Becoming an official is a great way to help out the club, earn volunteer hours and offers several perks: Officials get the best view of the pool, receive free food and drinks and often receive preferential parking at most swim meets. Not to mention the satisfaction of helping out our club. If you're interested in becoming an official click here and check out the San Diego-Imperial Swimming webpage on "Becoming an Official". Please ask a board member for more information if this is something you're interested in.
