The Oakdale Gators swim team is now accepting new swimmers for their summer swim team and is also providing swimming lessons located at OHS Aquatic Center. This will be the team’s 44th year as they have been a part of the community dating back to 1970.

The coaching staff includes OHS head swimming coach, Russ Van Cleave and Assistant coaches Ronny Thompson and Brian Fogarty along with president, Chris Elswick.

This is a fantastic introduction to the world of competitive swimming, where the swimmers will learn the importance of listening and application skills. They will also learn the importance of a strong kick, which is a huge focus on the team.
