Swim Team

The Old Willow Swim Team “Blue Lightning” belongs to the North Shore Swim Conference. The club encourages all young members to join the team regardless of each child’s ability. It‘s a wonderful way to meet kids and families at area clubs. The team creates a social setting for both the swimmers and the parents, and there is no better summer evening at Old Willow. The swim team is available to current club members’ children, ages 5 – 15, who are comfortable in the water and can swim one length of the pool.  The season consists of 6 Swim Meets, 36 practices over 7 weeks, Social Events, Ribbons and Awards.  Swimmers are responsible for OWC team suit and goggles.  Please note, there will be a suit fitting on May 15 and time Trials will be held on June 10.  More information to come.

For questions, please contact the our Blue Lightning Head Swim Coach, Matt Wendt.
