About the Pool Rats…

The Orchard Brook Pool Rats Swim Team is open to children in the subdivision age 5 through 18.  Kids can be part of a fun and competitive swim team right in their own neighborhood. Our swim team is part of the summer-only Trident Swim Conference, which consists of seven swim teams from other subdivisions and home associations in DuPage County. The season begins in early June and ends in an all-teams conference meet in late July.

The Pool Rats are coached by young people in our community who participate on their high school or college swim teams and have a strong desire to work with our children. The team is managed by Orchard Brook home owners who volunteer to oversee the team and coaches for the summer. Additionally, parents contribute their time and talent to running swim meets and helping with team events.

Registration fees and mandatory fundraising cover the many expenses of the team (conference dues, coaches’ salaries, swim meet supplies, etc.) and a few fun things too, like awards night.

Practices for Pool Rats are held every weekday morning. Swim meets are held Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
