About Us

Throughout its over 50 year history the Upper Canada River Otters Swim Club (UCRO) has trained children and young adults in the sport of competitive swimming with truly outstanding results. Designed to take the athlete from introduction to international, the River Otters program is dedicated to delivering innovative, multi-faceted and high-performance swim programs available to the youth of our community.

Our program focuses on skill improvement, self-development, competition, leadership and sportsmanship. The River Otter's professional coaching staff is committed to the development of healthy, well adjusted athletes who contribute not only to their team but to their communities. We provide a club structure that permits each swimmer to achieve excellence in all areas of their life:

1. Physical excellence and life skills are developed through hard work, discipline, team spirit, self-esteem, fun and individual achievement.
2. Through competition we will let the swimmers develop a sense of commitment to training and to the team.
3. Through the collaborative efforts of our athletes, coaches, parents, community stakeholders, governing bodies and associations, we hope to further the recognition of the sport of swimming both locally and nationally.
4. We strive to create a passion for excellence and a lifelong commitment to health and fitness.

Upper Canada Swim Club is a not-for-profit organization coached by a dedicated group of professionals and is managed and supported by an enthusiastic group of parent volunteers.
