Orange Beach Swim Team
The City of Orange Beach, Orange Beach Swim Team (OBST) coaches, and Orange Beach Aquatics Center (OBAC) welcome you and your swimmer(s) to our community!
Orange Beach Swim Team was derived from a place of passion and experience in the sport of swimming with a responsibility to establish a safe, competitive outlet in a supportive environment for the City of Orange Beach’s youth community. OBST sets out to inspire, challenge and build well-rounded individuals while instilling the principles of good sportsmanship and individual championship through competitive sport and team atmosphere. OBST takes pride in shaping the character of young athletes and developing a skill that provides health benefits for a lifetime.
OBST will kick off our founding year by offering a series of practices for experienced swimmers entitled “Swim Team Prep with Coach Dakota” beginning this March, followed by our summer league, which will take place this June and July, with the purpose of becoming a year-round USA Swimming- affiliated competitive team. Please, continue below for more information and the relative links for athlete registration.
Swim Team Prep
Open to ages 6-18, Swim Team Prep with Orange Beach Swim Team's Coach Dakota is designed for summer league and high school swimmers who wish to continue to stay in shape throughout the off season.
