Team Information

Posted 06/03/21

Dear Otter Swim Team Families,

Opening Day is quickly approaching, and we are excited to have you join our swim community. We have a fantastic swim team program in which swimmers and parents alike will make new friends and fond summer memories at the pool. Our goal is to create a fun, safe environment where your swimmer can experience being part of a team while learning how to swim competitively and build a foundation for water sports/activities.

For now, we would like to stress a few important "action items" for you to consider as we approach the season:

Please send your kiddos to swim practice prepared to swim with a proper 1 piece swim suit and goggles that do not leak or cover the nose.

  • Practice Times: This year you will be REQUIRED TO RESERVE a practice schedule for your swimmer(s). You will receive an email from Time Lewarchick/Sign Up Genius with a link. Us the link to Sign Up Genius to register for swim practices. 5-8 year olds get 3 practices a week, 9-10 year olds get 4 practices a week and 11 and over swimmers get 5 practices a week.

You can expect the first email notice to include one week of practices. Following that, you will receive a new email link every two weeks. This way you can schedule your practices 2 weeks at a time.

  • Meet Schedule: This summer season we will have two intra-squad meets. One on June 24th and the other on July 8th, Warm Ups at 5:00pm, meet starts at 5:30pm both meets will be at Swanson Pool.

To run a successful swim meet, we will need volunteers. Some of the positions you will be able to sign up for are timers, runners, ribbons, bull pen, etc. We will have more information as the date nears.

Practices will begin June 7th and end July 22nd. We will not have swim practice on July 5th in obersevance of the July 4th holiday.


Season - June 1 thru July 22

Swimming is an individual activity and a team sport. Children can easily set and achieve tangible goals. The harder they work the sooner they'll notice improvements in fitness and self-confidence. STC Otters is a recreational swim team for all skill levels, even those ready to "test" the waters! Swimmers will participate in weekly swim meets. Participants will receive a swim cap and t-shirt.

Swim Team organized by St Charles Aquatics Coaching Staff

Meet the Coaches Night will be held on June 1 at 6:00pm at Otter Cove. Parents and Swimmers will be able to ask questions and meet the Coaching Staff.
