How do I join Diss Otters? What do I need to be able to do?
We have six junior squads for ages up to 18 years and we also have adult squads too. We cater for competitive swimmers up to a County, Regional & National standard well as for those who want to improve their fitness levels to support another sport.
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.
We have slots available at all of our training sessions for swimmers to come and see what they think of Diss Otters Swimming Club. Usually we would ask that you swim with one of our squads 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 the form below to arrange a mutually convenient time to come along for a taster session.
We will be available to answer any question or queries you may have when we meet with you.
