About the Orcas:

Founded in 1962, the Terra Linda Orcas swim team is the oldest of the 10 teams in the Marin Swim League (MSL). We are a Summer league team with our season starting in February for practice, leading up to competitive swimming in late April through mid June. We participate in seven dual swim meets (our team vs. another MSL team). We also have one mid-season All-Stars meet for swimmers across the league with a special qualifying time. Our final swim meet is a Championship Meet with ALL MSL teams competing for the top team score and is open to all swimmers. “Champs” is a great end to a fun swim season and everyone is encouraged to participate. Go ORCAS! 


The team is open to all swimmers ages 5-18 who can swim one lap (25 yards) unassisted in the pool. For younger swimmers, and swimmers who are working up to unassisted swimming, we offer a separate Jr. Orcas program in  mid - late summer.


The Terra Linda Orcas swim team is an entirely volunteer run organization. Every parent must volunteer. It takes more than 50+ volunteers to host a swim meet! 

Season Schedule:

We are still finalizing the 2022 season, but here is the working schedule so far. 

Practices are held Mon-Fri at the Terra Linda Community Pool in late afternoons. 

Meets are held nearly every weekend (except Memorial Day weekend) late April  - mid June.

We are also planning a 60th anniversary celebration this year (date TBD)!
