    What is our purpose?

    The Oak Creek Village Cudas fosters competitive youth swimming and to provide instruction in competitive swimming skills in an atmosphere supportive to good sportsmanship and conducive to proper social and physical development of our youth.


    Who are we?

    Our swim team was formed in May 1972 at the suggestion of Rocky Smith. Rocky had been in competitive swimming prior to moving to OCV and felt that a summer program would benefit the resident children.  At the time the team formed, Rocky was a college freshman. The team started with 32 swimmers and practice was held from 12 – 1 pm, which was Rocky's lunch break. His only compensation was the balance of the membership fee which had not been used by the end of the season. This amounted to $125.00. Although there were only 32 swimmers, all of them inexperienced in competitive swimming, they finished 3rd out of five teams at the division meet.


    What is Northwest Aquatic League?

    The OCV Cudas is a participant in the Northwest Aquatic League (NWAL). NWAL consists of 100 teams in the Harris and Montgomery and surrounding county areas. The teams are grouped for competition into many divisions according to location, size and capability. NWAL provides coordination, established and enforces rules and regulations, assigns teams to divisions, sets meet schedules, trains officials and conducts league competitions for all teams. Each team sends one representative and an alternate to NWAL meetings and functions. League officers and committee members are chosen from the team representatives.
