Swim Ability

The OAC Orcas swim team aims to be engaging, fun, and developmental to the extent of having the children swim in competitive races. 

All swimmers 5 and up must be able to tread water to keep their head above the water. They need to be able to do this WITHOUT physically being held to get to something / somewhere safe (i.e. edge of the pool). 

Ages 7 and up must be able to swim 25 yards with NO assistance (i.e. there will be NO coaches physically in the water).

If your swimmer does not meet these requirements, they may be more suited to enroll in swim lesson instruction at many of the nearby swim schools in the build up to swim league. 

We will accommodate all swimmers that need our assistance due to any physical or developmental challenges.   

Please feel free to call or email to discuss further if you have any questions.
