Water Safety Check

  • All NEW swimmers, including those registered for the Jr. Otter Program (see below), must pass a Water Safety Check to secure a spot on the team. The Water Safety Check will be held at the Folsom Aquatic Center prior to the start of the season.
  • Any new swimmers who previously swam for a USA swim team, High School team, and/or a different team in a prior season may be allowed to bypass our Water Safety Check upon verification and approval by team personnel. Please provide this information to our Registrar during the registration process.

2022 Jr. Otter Program (June 1 through July 9)

The Jr. Otter program is a developmental swim program for children ages 4-6 (age on June 15, 2022) who are water safe but may not be ready for the full swim team experience. Over 5 weeks children will be taught the skills to become effective in swimming freestyle and backstroke. Many children will progress to diving, and all will have the opportunity to swim in a swim meet on July 9, 2022. Each practice will start and/or end with a game or fun activity.

This program is recommended when young children struggle to pass our Water Safety Check. Proficient swimmers who pass our Water Safety Check are ready for swim team and will not benefit from this program; those swimmers will be asked to register for the Folsom Sea Otters team.  

  • Swimmers who previously completed one year of Jr. Otters are not eligible to participate in the Jr. Otters program more than once and are asked to join the Folsom Sea Otters team.

Multi-swimmer discounts are offered for swimmers ages 4-14 (except those in the Jr. Otter program). All swimmers aged 15-18 receive a reduced fee, and no other discounts apply. Please see the chart below for current registration fees and payment plan fees.
