Group A – We call this group our “Little Gators.” Ideal for beginner swimmers starting at age 5 (4 if entering kindergarten in the fall). Swimmers will learn to get comfortable with the water by first putting faces in the water, going completely underwater, learning to float, to learning the basics of the freestyle and backstroke. Young elementary.
Group B – This is for new swimmers who are comfortable in the water and can move around in the water without help. Here swimmers will learn the basics of the four strokes: backstroke, breaststroke, free stroke, and butterfly. Young elementary.
Group C – This is for swimmers who can swim all four strokes. Here they will work on perfecting their stroke technique and build up their stamina. Older elementary.
Group D – Members in this group are perfecting their stroke techniques and are close to mastering them. They will work to improve their times and stamina. Young middle school.
Group E – Members in this group have mastered their stroke techniques. This is a longer practice which will push the swimmers so that they can really feel what competitive swimming is like. Older middle school and high school.
Every effort will be made to hold swim practice each weekday; however, threatening weather, extreme cold and technical difficulties sometimes make it necessary to cancel practice. Please check your e-mail for updates before all scheduled practices. We appreciate your patience and understanding of circumstances beyond our control.

Meets Only – $50
Are you practicing with another coach this summer, but want to compete in swim and/or dive meets? If so, we offer a “meets only” option! Join the OHAC Gators to show off your hard work! Email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com for more information.
The price of registration includes swimming, diving, or both teams.
Your child can participate in the sport that he or she chooses. There’s no pressure to compete in both.
There are no practice attendance requirements; however, we encourage swimmers and divers who want to compete to attend at least two practices per week.
All swimmers and divers are encouraged to participate in meets, but it is not a requirement. If your child is tentative about participating in a meet, we encourage you to come to a meet and see how much fun they are!
If you’re questioning whether your child can swim or dive well enough to join the team, please stop! This is a great place for your child to learn how to swim more confidently. Any new swimmers who are unsure about joining the swim and dive team are encouraged to attend practice during the trial period (the first two weeks) before making a decision.
Yes, the deadline to register is June 23.
Sorry, we only have this discount for OHAC members and Chapel Hill residents.
