The Ypsilanti Otters Swim Club (YOSC) has many levels of swim groups, from learning how to be comfortable and confident in the water, to competition and racing.

 

The YOSC runs the Fall, Winter & Spring Session on the public school schedule. All practices are held at YCS Willow Run Complex, 235 Spencer Lane, Ypsilanti  

 

The YOSC offers a Summer Session (since 2015) at Rutherford Pool, 975 N. Congress, Ypsilanti, MI 48197

 

YOSC Pups Deep & Jr. Otter groups

The Jr. Otters and Pups Deep groups have their lessons in the shallow end, the length is approximately 12.5 yards, or half of the pool. Swimmers learn all the four strokes and begin their skill set for competition. A variety of swim time choices are offered.  

 

YOSC Yellow and Blue groups 

The Yellow and Blue swimmers swim full lengths, 25 yards, during practice. It is important to have strong foundation in order to finish these hour long practices. Basic drills and some endurance work is the focus of these lower competitive groups. YOSC recommends that Yellow and Blue swimmers attend at least 3-4 practices a week to improve. 

 

YOSC Bronze & Silver groups 

Bronze, Silver, and Gold are our premier groups. Swimmers have dry land practice for 30 minutes, then swim for 1:30-1:45 minutes. These swimmers know all four strokes, appropriate turns, and are on their way to winning races. High level endurance is focused here, as well as a season practice plan that extends into our USA Swim season. YOSC recommends swimmers attend at least 4-5 practices a week to improve. 

 

YOSC Gold group 

Gold is made up of our 13-17 year old high school level athletes, if you are looking to keep improving in your off season then this is the team. YOSC helps strengthen your swimmer's racing strokes so they are ready when the public school season begins. Swimmers have dry land practice for 30 minutes, then swim for 2 hours.
