ORCA (Oak Ridge City Aquatics) swim team is an aquatic recreational workout for children ages 5-18. The program promotes fitness, team work, good sportsmanship, and proficiency in the four competitive strokes. The group does not compete in swim meets throughout the fall/winter months. It is a good stepping stone between basic swimming lessons and competitive swimming. Swimmers must be able to swim 50 yards unassisted to participate. A swim test will be given the first day. Swimmers who do not meet the swim test will be encouraged to take further lessons and their fee will be refunded. For further information call the Recreation and Parks Department at 425-3450.
Our instructors are all lifeguard certified.
