The mission of the ORCA (Oak Ridge City Aquatics) is to provide an organized, competitive swimming program for the youth of the Oak Ridge area. The program is designed for children ages 5-18. It encourages and emphasizes good sportsmanship, self-discipline, fitness and achievement of goals. ORCA strives to instill a lifelong love of swimming through enjoyment and accomplishment at all levels.
Our Spring program is a non-competitive program. During the six week sessions; the focus is learning the competitive strokes, fitness, and proficiency. This program is not designed for beginners. Our coaches are on deck and cannot offer individual swim lessons. Pre-requisites: Swimmers must be able to swim 50 yards unassisted. We can give a test at anytime to see if a swimmer is ready.
Swim Meets are only held during the Summer program.
