Registration is open for 2018

 

Welcome to the 2018 season for the Stratford Sea Otters. The Sea Otters are in their 5th season and provide the Stratford community and surrounding neighborhoods to summer swim team opportunities. I believe swimming is an invaluable life tool, and that everyone in Loudoun County that can be involved in swimming and reap the benefits from the sport, should have the opportunity.

The team will have strong senior swimmers, lots of fun and energetic 4-18 year olds. Additionally, a very special part of the team...the minis! These are special little swimmers who love the water and are like little sponges, ready to learn the ABC's of swim team with fun.

All swimmers but the minis must be able to complete one length of the pool, unaided. The minis need to be ready to get into the water without parent intervention.

My name is Teresa Pliuskaitis. I am a coach and the owner of SNOW Swimming, Loudoun's Premier Year Round Swim Team. I have lived in Loudoun County since 1996 and currently reside in Brambleton. I founded and ran Spring Lakes Dolphins for 10 seasons. I love swimming, it is my life and I think everyone should SWIM HAPPY!!!!!

You can reach me anytime at 703-966-1124 or teresameike@aol.com.

 2018 Stratford Sea Otters

We have an outfitting and volunteer signup meeting after Spring Break. We will have suits and goggles to try on and purchase. I will have team caps to purchase. We will be ordering Spiritwear as a team. The registration this year includes a team t-shirt, please make sure you update the sizing when you register. Additionally update any medical or age information you run across.

Other than some contributions to do coaches gifts or food for a team party at the end of the season, that is it in terms of expenses.
