Oakdale Swim Team Diving Into Annual Swim-a-Thon

Coming up on Friday, July 19 the Oakdale Swim Team will be hosting its annual fundraiser event known as the Swim-a-Thon. This fundraiser assists the many swim programs that Oakdale offers in a variety of ways including both the Gators and Gold teams. Funds are also used for equipment, training and pool rental costs.

Swimmers will hit the pool at Oakdale High School and swimmers who earn pledges of $150 and up will be able to participate in the inaugural water balloon fight against the coaches. A number of different prizes will be awarded throughout the event as well for those swimmers with the highest pledges. The swim-a-thon is scheduled to start at 5 p.m.

Oakdale Swim Team also offers swimming lessons to all ages. They also have both recreational and USA competition teams that are available through age 18, and Masters is available for adults 18 and over. For more information on the Friday fundraiser and how you can make a donation or become a sponsor, email them at or follow them on social media on Facebook, search Oakdale Swim Team, follow them on twitter @Oakdaleswimteam or Instagram at Oakdale Swim Team.
