Welcome to the Otter Pond
Established in 2008, The Orange Shoals Otters Swim Team is a member of the Atlanta Swim Association League for our third year. Cherokee County Summer Swim League made the decision to join this league beginning with the 2019 season. Orange Shoals swims against teams in our immediate area, from Cherokee County and nearby neighborhoods in neighboring Forsyth County and could also swim against teams in nearby Milton/Fulton County. The Otters welcome swimmers of all skill levels. 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, 25 yards, (any stroke) unaided. We represent the Orange Shoals subdivision, but also welcome athletes from outside the neighborhood based on availability.
Show your OTTER TEAM SPIRIT! Be sure to check out our Merchandise pop-up shop for all the cool new Otter logo gear for your swimmer and your family! Visit our Merchandise page and pick up a matching tie-dye 2021 team shirt for yourself!
Order your 2021 Team Suits!
We typically switch to new suits every two years. This year we will be using the same new suit from 2020. They are from TYR, navy blue and customized with our otter logo in orange. They are again available for order through our supplier directly. We won't be hosting in person fitting this year, however, we have posted the sizing charts on our Team Suit page to assist you in choosing the right size for your child. Visit our Team Suit page for more details about the the suits and to order directly from their online store.
