Dear OMPA Swim Community,
We write to regrettably advise the OMPA community that because of the Coronavirus Pandemic, the OMPA Board has unanimously decided to cancel the entirety 2020 OMPA summer swim season. This means that there will be no dual meets, invitationals or an OMPA Championship. This was a difficult but necessary decision that was made with the goal of protecting the health and safety of our swimmers and the community at large and to ensure compliance with current and anticipated future guidelines issued by the State of California and the Contra Costa County Health Department.
We will continue to support each club as they determine what may be possible for getting back in the pool for workouts.
The OMPA board will now focus on the 2021 swim season and considerations for next year, such as including 19-year-old swimmers who missed their senior swim year.
OMPA Board President on behalf of OMPA Board of Directors
The Orinda Moraga Pool Association (OMPA) is a non-profit corporation established in 1956 and comprised of nine recreational swimming teams all located within Contra Costa County, California.
The mission of the OMPA is to conduct a summer recreational swim league to benefit the member pools' children, of all abilities, aged 3-18. Through weekly competitive dual meets, and an annual Championship Meet, we promote the spirit of sportsmanship, integrity, and high ethical standards for all participating athletes, coaches, and parents, and ensure fairness through rules and regulations.
The goal of the OMPA is to use the sports experience to help the swimmers develop positive character traits and values that will help them succeed the rest of their lives.
