Little Otters is a great option for those children looking to earn their band. It is also a great option for children looking to join the swim team, but who need a little more instruction before they can safely transition onto the swim team. It is run under the direction of Sarah Morris, one of our Swim coaches. It is instrumental to general water safety, passing the Band Test, and the continued success of the Swim Team as we prepare and begin the transition into competitive swimming. Children in this group may participate in all swim team activities, but are not required.
Many of our Swim Team members have built their foundation in this program. Participation in all three sessions will optimize growth. Swimmers that meet swim team requirements during the season have the option to transition onto the team. This system works!
In this group, our Little Otters will work their way to achieving goals such as perfecting freestyle, introducing other strokes, and getting their band under the direction of the swim team. Children must be able to use a kick-board on their own and have a basic freestyle stroke to be in this group. Children will be in small groups with instructors to guide them. Children not ready for these skills will be recommended for the Learn to Swim Program.
