OA "Jumping Off" Grid: (Available upon request of Ronnie or Donnie)

Orinda Aquatics has developed a "jumping off" grid to assist OA families in beginning their college search.

The grid is specifically tailored to a generalized OA profile and includes over 100+ colleges/universities.

The grid may be sorted based on various criteria ie standardized tests, recruitable times, location, size, etc.

 

OA College Grid (swimmer fill out and bring to Donnie or Ronnie to discuss)

After researching colleges/universities, each rising senior should discuss their grid with their coach.

This should be done during the spring of junior year/summer before senior year.
