Welcome to the Ypsilanti Otters

The goal of our club is to provide every member an opportunity to improve swimming skills and achieve success at his or her level of ability, from novice to international competitor.


In June we learned that the Ypsilanti High School pool would undergo renovations and would not be available for Otters until Fall 2022.  Our Board was able to secure the EMU pool for the fall season with limited swimmers returning.  

We had hoped to restart our Learn to Swim program, and I know that we had many swimmers hoping to return to the water this January.  Due to the surge in Covid cases in our County, we are unable to offer swimming lessons this winter.  If this changes, information will be posted on the website, emailed to families and posted on Facebook.  We understand that this news is upsetting for many of our families. It has been 2 years since we were last able to offer learn to swim, and our coaches miss those young swimmers who are just getting comfortable in the water.  And we know that many of our competative swimmers are missing the training they need to continue to compete at a level they expect of themselves.  We plan to return to Rutherford Pool this summer. Rutherford has a great swim lesson program that I hope families will take advantage of.  And hopefully we'll all be able to return to the Ypsilanti High School Pool in the Fall 2022. 

If your swimmer would like to participate on an SMSL competitive team this season, please let us know by emailing [email protected] and we can direct you to other participating teams in our area. If you are looking for swimming lessons - you can reach out as well, and we can direct you to the other options that we know of in the community.


We are looking forward to seeing all of our Otters back in the water soon!
