How do I join Diss Otters? What do I need to be able to do?

We have 7 different squads ranging from 6yrs to 17yrs and we also have adult squads too, so there is a variety of abilities.

As a general rule, for Children we ask that they are 6yrs and over, they are able to swim 50m (2 lengths) Frontcrawl, Backstroke and Breastroke and willing to try! Generally if swimmers are in lessons they will be around Stage 6 however this is not binding in having a taster with us. We are a private customer of the council and you do not have to be recommended by swim school staff to join us.

On Mondays, Thursdays and/or Fridays at 6.15pm we have slots available for swimmers to come and see what they think of Diss Otters Swimming Club. Usually we would ask that you swim with our squad for 30mins or so in order that we can assess strokes and abilities which in turn give possible new members a chance to try out what we do!


You will need to contact our Head Coach via our ‘Contact Us’ page to confirm on which evening you would like to attend and we will make provisions for you. Alternatively you can call or text our Head Coach Jamie Rush on 07738 427735 to arrange a convenient day to have a taster. 

We will be available to answer any question or queries you may have when we meet with you.

Masters (adult swimmers/18+) are welcome to try a session with our Masters squad on Sundays at 8am or Wednesday at 8.30pm. 50m of each stroke is desirable however come along and have a go!
