The swim team is excited to announce the return of its normal season with all swimmers and opponents on deck this summer!
The swim season starts with tryouts for new swimmers, then goes into time trials, swim meets and ends with champs. Please note that registration is now closed for the 2023 Swim Season. If you’re interested in joining the Oaktree Sharks in the future, visit this page: www.oaktreesharks.swimtopia.com
The History of the Oaktree Sharks
The Oaktree Sharks swim team was started in the 1980’s by a few homeowner parents who wanted a summer program. Initially, there were only 3 teams, Oaktree Park, Almaden Swim and Racquet Club, and Belwood Swim Club. The idea had such appeal that the Valley Cabana Swim League (VCSL) was born, which now includes Oaktree Sharks Swim Club, Almaden Country Club, Belwood Swim Club, Montevideo Piranhas Swim Club, Los Paseos Aquatic Club, and Silver Creek Swim Club.
The expanded League goal is to encourage swimmers ages 4 - 18 years to do their personal best in a non-competitive and developmental summer swim league. All levels of swimmers are welcome to join and can contribute to the team. Swimming at the neighborhood cabana provides family centered non-contact physical activity and entertainment for local youth during late spring and early summer. Many neighborhood kids first learn how to swim with the team, learn to cheer on all age groups, find or become mentors among their peers, and go on to be lifeguards and coaches.
