Hello and Happy New Year!
We hope that 2021 finds you safe and healthy during this unprecedented time. We know that several of our TigerShark families have lost loved ones to Covid-19 and our thoughts are with you.
We are looking toward the end of this pandemic with strong hopes, and expectations, to be back to normal for our 2021 swim season. Since you swam with us in 2020, your swimmer is eligible for early registration which begins on Monday, January 11th.
We strongly recommend that you take advantage of this early registration as our age groups do tend to fill, some even in January. The park and rec office is not asking for a very big deposit to reserve your spot this year, $10 per swimmer, and the board has decided to wait to request your parent deposit until April. Once we are 100% sure the season will go as planned, we will request a $75 parent deposit but that is not needed at this time.
The District Office may be closed to walk-ins due to the current guidelines in place at the time of registration. Please contact the District Office via email, firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone 916-988-4373, for further details or current enrollment options.
As always, please feel free to reach out to me directly with any questions or concerns. Stay safe.

As we near the end of our first session of swimming, it’s time to celebrate our coaches! Let’s take this week, August 3 - August 7, to show our coaches some love. Check your email for documents that each coach has filled out detailing their likes and dislikes. I also encourage your swimmer to make a card or note for their coach as that is always appreciated. The coaches don’t know that we are celebrating them this week so it will be a surprise starting Monday!
Below you will find a signup genius link. Please check it out. We can have more than 3 items per coach/day but I want to be sure that each coach has something each day of the week so please sign up if you plan to participate!
Also the Record Board Stats from 2019 have been posted under "Meet Results"
Congratulations to our record breakers!!
Thank you and let me know if you have any questions!

At this moment, OVparks is still waiting for the State and County to allow reopening of public swimming pools. We do not have a date for this, since it depends on how quickly our area is able to move through the necessary phases of reopening.
The season has NOT been cancelled. We are still hoping to offer participants a chance to swim, however this will depend on when pools are able to open and what kind of social distancing restrictions are required. We always want to ensure we can keep our swimmers and families safe and healthy.
We are grateful for your patience during this process. We will email you when we have any news about practices or adjustments. If you would prefer to remove your children from the program at this time, please contact us for a full refund.
Happy New Year!
We hope you had a safe and fun holiday. It’s now 2020 and we are looking forward to another great swim season featuring new Head Coach, Andrew Murch!
Returning families who completed their volunteer hours in 2019 are welcome to pre-register beginning Monday 1/6, at 8:30am.
Please be patient with our office staff as they support our registration process. We have asked them to have you complete the tablet form so we have your correct email. This is essential for my communication, calendar updates, and registering for meets. We have tried to streamline the tablet as much as possible so we greatly appreciate your patience and understanding as you complete it.
For any new families that would like to join the team, they are welcome to register after February 3rd.
See you soon!
Kristin, OVTS Board President
* Sunday, July 21st - Family Relays at 5pm
** Bring a picnic lunch and join us for family relays! As a reminder, relays are 4 swimmers. You are welcome to participate or have your kids grab friends or coaches to swim. (As a child, my parents were not swimmers but we attended family relays each year and I loved swimming with my friends and brother against other friends.)
** Relay sign-ups will be on the bulletin board on Sunday for you to choose which relays you’d like to swim.
* Saturday, July 27th - Championships at ARC
** Check-in for Champs is typically at 6:30am.
** This meet includes all 7 teams in our league. We come together to compete and determine who the best team is! We’ve come in second for the last several years and this could be our year!
** You must signup to volunteer in advance. The other teams are counting on us having our positions filled. With so many teams, we have many options.
* Sunday, July 28th - Awards at 5pm on the pool deck
** Your swimmer will be recognized for their achievements this season.
** If you would like to thank a specific coach, they love receiving a note of thanks.
