Swim Lessons


Are you interested in swim lessons?  

Our lessons are provided by our lifeguards and swim coaches who work as independent contractors.  Please feel free to contact the instructors to set up your private swim lessons.


The Oak Ridge Swim Club charges a $5 guest fee for all non-members receiving swim lessons in our facility.  This is in addition to any fees being paid to the lifeguards for lessons.

Claudia Lavinder

I’m Claudia Lavinder and I have been swimming for the Oak Ridge Swim Team for 9 years. I also swam competitively with the GCY Makos and the Varsity FHE Hawks team.  This will be my second year as a swim team coach for ORSC.  When I’m not busy with school, I attend youth group, play basketball & soccer, babysit, pet sit, and hang with friends.   

I love swimming, I love kids, and I am excited to share my love for the sport!  No matter the skill level, from beginner to advanced, I can help you/your child grow as a swimmer.
