Pups & Jr. Otters - The Willow Run Pool is colder than a recreational pool.  If your child is assigned to Pups or the Jr. Otters , you can bring your swimmer on the first day to try out the class and pool to make sure s/he is comfortable in the water/class.

Some swimmers or parents feel that they are not ready for a swimming competition yet. The only way to be comfortable and confident in the water is to try out all aspects of swimming. Even if a swimmer can only do one race, that is enough to get them into the sport of competitive swimming. The way we create an atmosphere of teamwork and community is to get everyone cheering for their teammates, and the friendship and respect of one another will show in and out of the water.
