Old Georgetown Club is happy to offer a competitive summer swim team to its members. Our team's mission is to provide a fun, family-oriented and positive swimming experience for our members. This environment strives to promote lasting friendships, competitive spirit, and the joy of attaining one's personal best. The OGC Swim Team participates in the Montgomery County Swim League (MCSL) and will compete in Division C in the Summer of 2020.
OGC swim team is only for members of OGC. Please complete pool registration before attempting to register for swim and dive teams. No swimmers are allowed to participate in practice until their team registration is complete. You will receive a confirmation of your swimmer's registration.
Summer swim and dive teams are run by volunteers. Meets and events need anywhere from 2 - 40 people to operate. We use a points system that will track your participation and families are expected to earn a minimum of 40 points per team over the course of the season. Points should be earned through a combination of working at meets and events. Importantly, if your child is participating in a meet, it is expected that your family will volunteer at that meet. Please sign up early and be willing to help out even when/if your volunteer obligations have been met. It's fun and easy - some jobs required specific training and you will need to be certified in the off-season but most jobs do not require any previous experience with swimming or diving. Don't worry we'll train you! There are a few jobs available for older siblings who can earn SSL hours and it's fine if nannies or grandparents help out too. If you have multiple children swimming or diving, please aim to exceed the minimum point obligation.
Keep in mind that families who do not meet the minimum will be charged $250 at the end of the season. If you foresee difficulty in meeting your volunteer obligations, please reach out to our volunteer coordinators -- Sharon or Ashley EARLY in the season. There are lots of jobs that can be done "off the deck" and we can work with your family to make sure your obligations are met.
Thanks in advance for all you do to help make our swim and dive teams!
