Otters Youth Swim Team 

Welcome to the 2022-2023 Otters Swim Team!
Our recreational swim team is designed to provide a positive team environment for learning good sportsmanship through competitive swimming. Otters begin with the fundamental skills and we build from there to allow each swimmer to achieve their individual goals. Our Otters team is an inclusive community and we provide a safe and healthy environment for all of our swimmers to begin a lifelong love of swimming.
