Interested in Joining the Club this Spring?

Interested in giving OCM a try this January?

What do you need to do to join the club or are you interested in the free swim?

It's easy to join OCM! Just arrive 10-15 minutes before your first practice and sign-in at the front desk as a "Guest Swimmer".  Head on into the change room and join the rest of the club on deck when the practice starts (7:30pm week days, 9:00am on weekends) and introduce yourself to the coach. 

They'll have a short chat with you and get you situated in the appropriate lane.  Not to worry - you can always move up or down lanes depending on your speed.

Your first swim with us is free - and iot's meant to give you a chance to check out the club and see if we're a good fit!

When you decide to join we'll have you complete a registration form and we request you provide payment one your first official swim. Not sure which package is right for you? You can always top-up if you decide you want to swim more.

With OCM you can get as much or as little coaching as you'd like. Just give the coach a heads-up about what you're looking for.

OCM is a very friendly club, with an experienced and dedicated coaching staff. We're social and do enjoy competiting in local competition, but there's no mandatory participation in competitions.
