Otters Swimming Club ready to expand
PUBLISHED: 10:40 24 February 2011
DEREHAM Otters Swimming Club has been run since 1975, becoming more successful with each passing year.
Under the expert tutoring of head coach Stewart Park the club won the East Midland Speedo League Division Two in December 2010 and has been promoted for the first time to Division One.
There are also increasing numbers of county and regional-level swimmers within the club. All 127 members are encouraged to develop as individuals, make the most of their potential – and have fun!
The club also runs the very popular Iceni Gala each September, which last year had over 1,400 entries. They also held a very successful Swim Camp in Tunisia in October 2010, a tradition which will be continued this October in Tenerife.
The club is currently going through a period of re-structuring and expansion, so at last it has some vacancies to offer to new swimmers.
They would welcome new recruits to trial evenings at Dereham Leisure Centre on the first Monday of each month. There will now be 10 different squads, with a wider variety of training schedules to suit all members.
As well as openings for new swimmers there are also new opportunities for sponsorship.
