Welcome to the OakLeaf Swim Team website!
**We are excited to get our 2023 summer season kicked off. Registration forms will be available at each of the Oakleaf Plantation fitness centers as of Saturday, April 1st. Coach Jack will be on site at the phase 2 center from 12pm-2pm to meet and greet new swimmers, answer questions, and say hello to any returning Orcas who stop by.
Please be patient as we make some updates to the website. In the coming weeks we will post our meet schedule and other events. For now, the practice schedule is updated on the front page.
Congrats on a fantastic season last year. This summer will see our 2023 league championship being held on July 16th at Episcopal High School's Elizabeth Simpson Walton Aquatic Center. Practice will start the first week of May. We're very proud of our Orcas and their hard work last summer!
We are a swim team for children from 5 years of age (as of June 1st) through age 18 who, at a minimum, can swim two lengths of the pool (50 yards). Our team is part of the First Coast Summer Swim League (FCSSL).
We focus on teaching your child the fundamental techniques of the four competitive strokes. They'll also learn how to compete as an individual while being an integral part of a bigger team. Setting and beating personal goals will be encouraged while helping the children be active and physically fit. Check out the Foundations tab to see more of what we build upon and expect.
Our league is a developmental league and thus competing with a USA Swimming team during the FCSSL season is not permitted. However, swimmers may continue to practice with their club team during the summer season.
Practices and Meets held at Plantation Oaks Lap Pool
Located at 845 Oakleaf Plantation Parkway, Orange Park, FL 32065. It can be found near the entrance to Eagle Landing. Entrance for Practices and Meets is through the tennis courts.
