Fall season approaches- tryouts begin!

Minneapolis Otters Administration

Parents who are interested in joining the YWCA Otters please see below on how to have your swimmer come in for a tryout!

How to Schedule a Tryout

To schedule a tryout please email us at [email protected], and we can get your swimmer scheduled to come in and get assessed to be on Otters, and answer any questions. Due to Covid, tryouts are scheduled on a one on one basis, the times and days of when we are able to offer tryouts may vary.

Please have your swimmer wearing their suit already, and wait outside the main entrance to the building- please do not enter or approach the staff at the front desk, as our coaches will be escorting you to another entrance for our spacing protocol from the rest of the building.


Joining Otters

Due to Covid restrictions, all groups have limited space, becuase of this we are approving all registrations based on time stamps of when each swimmer registered for the coming season. Some groups may fill up right away, and others may not. Registration opened in July to all returning Otters, once they are all placed into groups, then we will start placing new Otters into groups that still have room.

Once approved for Otters, when you register your swimmer will be a pending registeration until approved. When we approve the registrations you will recieve an email with login instructions to your account, and then you can finish setting it up.
