The Bob Rueppel Mini Meet at Old Orchard Swim Club is a swimming meet for children ages 9 and under, which will be held on Sunday, July 7th, 2019.

The Meet features 61 events, including fun “kick board” races for the youngest participants! Old Orchard also runs “Hot Heats” with small prizes to the winners of these randomly selected heats. The continued success of this annual event is in part due to the fun, relaxed, and safe outdoor swimming environment offered by Old Orchard Swim Club .
