What is Camp OST?


Joining a swim team can be intimidating but it shouldn’t be. Which is why this year we are hosting Camp OST (Opelika Swim Team) for any swimmers pre-k through 5th grade who are interested in learning more. Our only requirement is that participating swimmers be able to swim the length of the pool unassisted. This is strictly for safety reasons.

On the first day of camp we will do a quick swim test with all the swimmers to make sure they are ready. This will also give us the opportunity to point families towards swim lessons if needed. Often times the difference maker for someone to join the swim team is simply being in the pool more often. Working on the necessary skills to join!

What will we focus on each day of CAMP:

  • Day 1: Freestyle / Freestyle Kick / and Streamlines
  • Day 2: Backstroke / Backstroke Kick / Dives
  • Day 3: Butterfly Kick / Butterfly Fly Arms / Dives
  • Day 4: Review of Freestyle and Backstroke
  • Day 5: Breaststroke Kick / Breaststroke Arms / Dives
