Swim Lessons

Updated April 17th, 2020

Between the Oakdale Joint Unified School District being shut down for the remainder of the 2019/2020 school year, and the statewide shelter in place order, we have to keep everything shut down until further notice. At the earliest, we can start back up June 1st, but that is assuming Governor Newsom lifts the statewide shelter-in-place orders by then. We will provide updates to when a restart date will be.

So in the meantime we are refunding and cancelling all Gator and lesson registration. When we come back, hopefully in June, we will have a new Gator and lesson registration, and we will be restructuring Gators to a new program moving forward.

Registration Dates: 

Registration for the 2020 season will open February 1st.

Register for Swim Lessons

Lessons Times:

Will begin in May 4th and through July 30th

Time slots: 5:00 - 5:25 pm and 5:30 - 5:55 pm Monday - Thursday.

***Some lesson weeks may only include 3 days due to holidays, graduations, etc.  These 3 day lesson weeks will be prorated***

Lessons are for new-to-the-water, potty trained, future Gators Summer Team and/or California Gold swimmers

Lessons are also for swimmers who do not pass the Oakdale Gators swim test and would like more instruction in order to join the summer team

Swim Test

  1. Completely submerge their head while blowing bubbles
  2. Float on their stomach while blowing bubbles for 10 seconds unassisted.
  3. Kick on their stomach while blowing bubbles for 10 seconds unassisted.
  4. Float on their back for 10 seconds unassisted.
  5. Kick on their back for 10 seconds unassisted.

Additional skills may be tested at the discretion of the coach

We hope all swimmers who pass swim lessons will immediately transition on to our Gators Summer Swim Team. We are a growing team with a large summer swim team, large fall extended swim team, and quickly expanding and successful year-round USA Swim Team!
