The Oak Ridge Recreation and Parks Department is offering a trial period for swimmers who may be interested in swimming with the ORCA swim team this summer.  On May 21, 23, 28 and June 4, swimmers are welcome to come to try a normal ORCA swim session, 4pm to 5pm, and swim with the group to get an assessment of their abilities; all swimmers will need a signed release in order to participate. 

Regular Summer ORCA members will have pre-outdoor pool workouts during this time as well.  Children are invited to swim and meet with the coaches to see if they are ready and able to join the recreational swim team this summer.  Parents must sign a release for their child to participate.  Summer ORCA is $120 plus a non-resident fee where applicable.  Summer session dates run from June 5th to July 25th.  Swim Team members will participate in 2 home swim meets and two away meets in addition to GKAISA at the end of July.

For further information please call the Recreation and Parks department at 425-3450. Please visit our website for information on all of the Recreation and Parks department programs www.orrecparks.org.
