Our aim is to teach children to swim in a positive, safe and caring environment. Each child brings with them different emotional and developmental abilities. We recognize these differences and develop each lesson with this in mind. The swim staff works to build each child’s self-esteem, confidence and love of swimming.
Oak Hills Country Club offers organized group and private swim lessons in the summer for children ages 4 and up. All lessons will be arranged by the Oak Hills Lesson Coordinator.
Group lessons are organized into 30-minute sessions and divided into three sessions. Each session runs two weeks (8 sessions) Monday through Thursday.
As part of the Country Club Swim League, the Oak Hills swim team places equal emphasis on all parts of summer swimming.
In summary, our philosophy:
For swimmers, coaches and parents to have fun and to work hard, both individually and as a team in a respectful atmosphere.
In keeping with this thought, we hope to “develop in our children a love for the sport, advanced aquatic skills, teamwork and the principles of good sportsmanship.”
We ask that all families and their swimmers keep this philosophy in mind throughout the season and work together as a team in the best interest of “our kids.”
WHO CAN SWIM
The swim and dive team is open to all children of Oak Hills’ members. Generally, children any age through 18, who can swim one length of the pool unassisted, are accepted as swim team members. We do encourage all interested children to come and try.
