2021 REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN
Welcome back to the Folsom Sea Otters 2021 Season. We look forward to providing an opportunity for swimmers to again participate with our team. Coaches are excited and eager to have this activity available and see our swimmers grow their skills. The Suburban Swim League (SSL) has been planning and adjusting schedules for all teams in order to accommodate as much of a regular season as possible this year. Some changes due to COVID-19 restrictions this year include:
* Quiet Period rules are waived this year.
* Virtual Meets (4-6 planned). Includes more bye weekends during the summer this year.
* Swimmers age 19 who were on a SSL roster in 2019 may participate again to experience their last season.
* There will be no scoring for the SSL (Times and Team Records will be recorded).
* No end of season SSL Championship meet is scheduled.
* Practice schedules may be modified this year to accommodate all registered swimmers with an expectation to have as much swim practice time as possible.
The Folsom Sea Otters has a goal of trying to make this season as much of a normal season for swimmers with keeping in mind there may be necessary changes to planned activities, practices, and meet schedules as new direction is relayed to the team from the city, county, and state Public Health.
We encourage all swimmers to register as soon as possible in order to reserve your space on the team. It may become first-come-first-served, in the event COVID-19 capacity restrictions severely limit the number of swimmers in the pool at one time. If restrictions significantly reduce the practice time and/or season, the FSO will evaluate season costs to consider refunds in part or full.
The Folsom Sea Otters swim team is a non-profit, recreational/competitive, parent-run swim team. Our team has approximately 300-375 swimmers ranging in age from 4 to 18 years. Anyone within this age range as of June 15 is welcome to sign up. Team practices are held at the Folsom Aquatic Center.
We participate in the Suburban Swim League, which consists of eight swim teams, including 1,800 swimmers. Our 2021 season will run from April 26 through July 24. The season consists of a Time Trials meet, seven dual meets and at the end of July, all eight teams compete in a three-day championship swim meet.
The philosophy of the Folsom Sea Otters Swim Team is to provide a positive, team oriented, learning environment where each swimmer can achieve their potential by developing and refining necessary skills while having fun. The coaching staff, Board of Directors, and parents combine their efforts to ensure a quality, recreational/competitive program, with regard for good sportsmanship.
