YOSC Summer 2021 - Week of 7/5-7/10

Ypsilanti Otters

Otter Families!

At Saturday’s HOME Breastroke meet, we won the swim portion by 3 points.  Great job Otters!  Barton Hills was able to gain a lot of points with relays, which are worth more points than individual events. If at least 4 swimmers sign up in an age group, we can have a relay.

We will have normal practice this week and a meet on Saturday. 

Please arrive a few minutes early to complete the paper “Otters COVID daily Check In” form when arriving each day for practice. This check-in must be completed by anyone at practice (coaches, swimmers, parents, etc.)
