Welcome to the Oliver Ames Swim and Dive Team Family

Oliver Ames Swim & Dive Team is a competitve high school varsity athletic program. Their Boosters meet on a monthly basis, starting in September, and continue until the season ends in February. Any parent of an OA Swim and Dive athlete is encouraged to join the boosters. The objective of the boosters is to help provide a memorable experience for the student athlete and their parents. This is achieved through fundraising, parent/student volunteering, team building efforts, and of course a winning swim program. Oliver Ames Swim and Dive offers a unique student athlete experience.
