Junior Otters

Requirements
Swimmers must be in ASA NPTS Stage 5 they will be given the opportunity for a swim assessment prior to being offered a slot in Junior Otters. Swimmers are encouraged to maintain regular swimming lessons so that the club can build on ASA swimming standards.

Opportunities
Swimmers will only be able to swim Sunday evenings 16.30-17.30hrs. During holiday periods swimmers may be asked if they would like to come to more sessions to improve their fitness and stamina. This is at the discretion of the Head Coach. It has recently come available for groups of Junior Otters to swim on a Wednesday evening 1930-2030

They will not be eligible to compete in any external galas but can compete at club galas and time trial events.

A waiting list will be compiled on a first come first serve basis and every effort will be made to allow young swimmers to begin as soon is practicable.

Developments

Once in Junior squad swimmers will have access to swim 3 times weekly and be eligible to compete within the local leagues. There is no time restriction for development.
