Orinda Aquatics Collegiate History

 
Collegiate participation, success, and leadership is without question the thing we are most proud of at Orinda Aquatics. Over the past twenty years, Orinda Aquatics has achieved success and consistency that would rival any club in the nation. The training culture and methodology has supported swimmers to eagerly pursue collegiate athletics, and character culture has supported a very high degree of leadership. Approximately eighty percent of Orinda Aquatics swimmers go on to compete in college, and virtually all wish to. Among those who do not, many compete on their campus club teams. 
 
With a very strong academic backdrop at Orinda Aquatics (senior gorup GPA near 4.0), our graduates pursue the highest level of academics with a very strong presence at the top schools in the nation (see list below). For example, recent graduates are attending, or have committed to, Harvard, Princeton, UCLA, Texas, Boston College, Pomona, Middlebury, Dartmouth, Pepperdine,  Carnegie Mellon, Georgetown, NYU, USC, Northwestern, Davis, Santa Barbara, UOP, Cal Poly, and many more.
