Diss Otters New Kit!

Diss Otters Swimming Club are celebrating their 30th anniversary this year and to mark the fact the club have a new poolside kit.

The parents of the swimmers have been extremely supportive of the venture because although the club has part funded the new shirts, it has been the parents that have paid the majority of the cost.

The coaching team have also been supplied with new shirts, and the swimmers will get the opportunity to parade their new kit at several galas over the next few weeks.

The club was formed in 1987 as Waveney Otters which coincided with the old outdoor pool being covered. The name change to Diss Otters came in 2002 and from then until now the club has provided a base for up to 150 members aged seven to seventy plus.

More exciting events are in the pipeline to celebrate the 30 year milestone for later in the year.

Head coach Jamie Rush has also taken the opportunity to name new captains, with Matthew Tatum the new boys captain assisted by Joel Clarke and Matthew Munnings as vice catains, Lottie Gates is the new girls captain with Ottilie Miller and Lauren Taylor as vice captains.

A team of Diss Otters swimmers took part in a Sprint gala at Wymondham last Saturday hosted by Norwich Swan. Diss finished a creditable third with some great pbs and individual swims, just being overhauled for second by Dereham. A strong Norwich Swan team took the trophy.
