Program Description

2018 JR. OTTER PROGRAM

June 4th through July 14th

The Jr. Otter program is a developmental swim program for children ages 4-6 (age on June 15, 2018) who are water safe but may not be ready for the full swim team experience. Over 6 weeks children will be taught the skills to become effective in swimming freestyle and backstroke. Many children will progress to diving and all will have the opportunity to swim at our home meet at the Folsom Aquatic Center on July 14. Each practice will start and/or end with a game or fun activity.

This program has a capacity for 20 swimmers who will be working with 6 coaches (2 Head or Assistant Coaches and 4 Swimmer Coaches). There will be at least a 1:5 ratio of swimmers to coaches in the water. The instructional pool will be used which has a depth of 3.5 feet. It is heated and supervised by an Aquatic Center lifeguard. Parents will need to stay at the pool for the duration of practice. Practice will be held daily Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8:15am - 9:00am.

MANDATORY WATER SAFETY ASSESSMENT

Prior to the start of the program, children will need to demonstrate they can be safe in the water by participating in the water safety assessment. Coaches will evaluate participant’s ability to swim a 1/2 lap (12.5 yards), demonstrating they are water safe and able to take a breath. Please have your swimmer come ready to swim in a suit, and bring a towel and change of clothes, if needed. Goggles and swim caps are optional, not required. The water safety assessment will take place rain or shine, at the Folsom Aquatic Center, Wednesday, April 4th from 6pm – 8pm.

REFUND/DROP POLICY

Swimmers who are assessed as not being ready for the program will receive a full refund, less a $20 processing fee. Swimmers who decide to leave the program and provide written notice to the Folsom Sea Otter Board prior to June 3, 2018 shall receive a 50% refund of their registration fee. No refunds will be given on/after June 4, 2018.
