The Oak City swim team teaches swimmers the values of teamwork, good sportsmanship, perseverance, and respect through hard work and determination. Our year-round swim team is primarily a recreational swim team and is a great preparation for summer, high school, or competitive swim teams. An Oak City swimmer will always be encouraged to keep improving, but will never be reprimanded for losing. We value every swimmer as an individual and as a member of our team. Above all, we desire to teach a lifelong love for the sport of swimming that will stick with the child even after he or she has left the team.
Sound like something your child might be interested in? We promise you, there is no more effective or more fun way to learn intermediate and advanced swim skills than by being on a swim team.
