Annual Meeting Notice - September 7, 2014

OHAC Members: This is to notify you of the Annual Meeting of Orchard Hills Athletic Club on Sunday, Sept. 7, 2014, at 7 pm at OHAC pool. If you are unable to attend the meeting we need your proxy (one per family) in order to conduct business and elect new board members!

You may give the signed proxy (download the OHAC Proxy Form here) to any board member or drop it in the “Annual Meeting Proxies” envelope on the bulletin board at either pool. After Labor Day an envelope will be on the bulletin board outside the front door at OHAC pool.

The proxy lists the current board members. We will hold elections for new board members to fill the following positions: Membership and Maintenance. The following board members have said they will stand for re-election: Treasurer and Web Master. If you are interested in any of these positions, or know of someone who would be well-qualified that you would like to nominate, please respond to this e-mail or tell a board member.

The Board would like to thank all the volunteers who help maintain our programs and facilities. Volunteers are critical to keep our pools running and our costs down. We look forward to seeing you at the Annual Meeting and again next year for another fun-filled swim season.

Welcome to Orchard Hills Athletic Club

Orchard Hills Athletic Club (OHAC) is your place for affordable, family summertime fun! This is our 50th year and we will be celebrating (look for more info to come). We are located in Northeast Ann Arbor, Michigan. Membership entitles you to the use of our two neighborhood pools:

  • OHAC (Orchard Hills Athletic Club Pool) at 2300 Yorktown, Ann Arbor
  • Dolfin Pool at 2050 Prairie, Ann Arbor

OHAC features a roped-off shallow area for younger kids, an in-pool basketball goal, a 10-foot water slide, shaded picnic tables with free use of a gas grill, a grass volleyball court, and shuffleboard. Dolfin features a diving board, at least one lap lane always available, covered patio seating, and picnic tables with free use of a gas grill.

Members also have the opportunity to rent either pool for private parties and enjoy several social events.

Our club also offers several other programs, including swimming lessons, swim and dive team, and synchronized swimming. For 2014, we also will introduce evening water aerobics and drop-in water polo at Dolfin.

Deep Water Swim Test

Children in Middle School and below must take the deep-end swimming test and pass each year to be permitted to swim in the deep area of either pool and use the slide at OHAC.

To pass the test, children must:

  • Swim half the length of the pool on their stomach and swim the remaining half on their back without a prolonged rest.
  • Tread water for one minute.

Inclement Weather Policy

OHAC and Dolfin pools may close at the guards' discretion if the temperature is below 65 F or if it is rainy/windy/overcast.
