Welcome to the Otter Pond
Established in 2008, The Orange Shoals Otters Swim Team is swimming in the Atlanta Swim Association League for our second year. Orange Shoals will swim against teams in our immediate area, from Cherokee County and nearby neighborhoods in neighboring Forsyth County. The Otters welcome swimmers of all skills. Our swimmers range from age 5 to 18. The only minimum requirement is for the swimmer to be able to traverse the length of the pool (any stroke) unaided. We represent the Orange Shoals subdivision, but also welcome athletes from outside the neighborhood based on availability.
