Putting Character First

Orinda Aquatics has served Lamorinda and the surrounding areas since 1995. As one of the top smaller swim teams in USA Swimming (USA Swimming Virtual Club Championships), OA has achieved tremendous success over its history, producing numerous Olympic Trial and National Level swimmers, and placing a very high percentage of swimmers in top collegiate programs. The team motto and mission is to put "Character First" in swimming and in life, and it translates to "the better the person, the better the athlete, the better the swimmer, and the better the team", which is lived daily by the coaches and the swimmers.

"Integrity has no need of rules." -Albert Camus
