Little Orcas is Edgebrook's pre-competitive swim team. It is for children ages 5-7 who love to swim, can swim across the pool unassisted, and just aren't quite ready for a full swim team experience. We will be having swim tests on May 23 and 24 so that the coaches can evaluate your child's swim abilities. The main purpose of the swim tests is to insure that everyone is safe in the pool and that the kids are capable of being safe in a swim practice with many other kids. If your child isn't quite ready, the coaches are more than happy to help you find the approproate level of swim instruction whether it be private or small group lessons.

If you have already registered your child as a Little Orca, please sign your child up for a 10 minute time slot under "job sign-up". Please arrive for your time 10 minutes early and have your child totally ready to jump in at the beginning of their time. In order to be safe for Little Orcas, the coaches are looking for the following:

  • Children who are enthusiastic, ready to jump in, and are glad to be swimming.
  • Able to swim across the pool without any assistance (no help from lane lines, walls, or people)
  • Able to demonstrate floating on their back for at least 5 seconds.
  • All of the above accomplished within the 10 minute time block

Looking forward to seeing you soon!
