ORCA Swim Lessons and Recreational Teams

Swim Lessons, recreational swim teams and water polo teams are offered through ORCA in partnership with the City Orange. Since 2002 ORCA has provided a wide range of swim classes and lessons for all levels of swimmers. Our program is designed to help students thrive and become competent swimmers while offering a convenient, family-friendly structure for parents.  ORCA is affiliated with USA Swimming and offers recreational swim and water polo teams.

We predominantly serve the City of Orange, Villa Park and adjoining communities.

              ***All Summer Swim School Session Registrations for 2023 open May 8!***

There will be four Summer Sessions that run for two weeks each conducted from June 12 - August 3 at Villa Park High School.  Classes meet Monday through Thursday and are 25 minute sessions.  Sessions are scheduled between 2 p.m. and 4:30 p.m., and reservation system is first come, first served. 

Two types of classes are available: semi-private classes include four students to a single instructor.  Semi-Private classes will be cancelled prior to the start date of the session if there is insufficient enrollment; that is, if fewer than four children enroll in the class.  You may be offered an alternate time via email, but only if there are other open classes. 

Private lessons are one-on-one.  Please register your child early!  Private classes are more expensive, but they go forward with your enrollment and the sole focus of the class is on your child.  More classes may be added if instructors are available, so please utilize the waiting list or check back.  Your child will need: footwear, a swimsuit, swim goggles and a cap.  Please bring a towel.  Flotation devices are not permitted in the pool. 

Sessions for Summer 2023 will run as follows:

Summer Session 1: June 12 - June 22

Summer Session 2: June 26 - July 6 (no classes on July 4)  

Summer Session 3:  July 10 - July 20

Summer Session 4:  July 24 - August 3



A $50 cancellation charge is deducted from refunds requested prior to the first day of Session One.  After Session One begins, no refunds of any amount are available.
