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, on June 9th there will be time trials at 4:00 PM & an all aquatics parent meeting at 6:00 pm.
For questions, please contact the our Blue Lightning Head Swim Coach, Matt Wendt.
Pre-season practices run from 4:15-6:15 PM and are optional. Regular season practices are Monday through Fridays, 3:30-6:00 PM.

Old Willow’s diving team has steadily grown over the past few seasons with several athletes competing in meets. Our diving well (2 boards) provides the opportunity to get plenty of practice and repetitions for everyone. The dive team is available to current club members’ children, ages 5 – 15. Our 5 League dual-meets include a diving competition in the mid-afternoon followed by the swim competition (so members can participate in both). Divers are responsible for OWC team suit. Please note, an all aquatics parent meeting will be held on June 9th from 5:30-7:30 pm More information to come. Please take advantage of our great diving facility and talented coaching staff. For Diving Team questions, please contact Coach Wendt.
