2018-2019 Season

Online registration will open August 22nd.


Each OAK lesson is one hour in length and the program runs for the entire season from October to May.

Swimmers are divided into groups (Lesson A, B, C and D) depending on their age. This is so your children will be at a similar level to other swimmers in the lessons and not out of their depth and struggling. Swimmers MUST meet the minimum required skills within their age bracket. Please see below for more details

Each child will receive a free OAK cap.
