If you are interested in joining Ormskirk Otters Swimming Club please use the ‘Register For Trial’ link on the home page.
Ormskirk Otters were founded by a band of enthusiastic parents in the spring of 1975, a year after Ormskirk Park Pool opened.
The Club was originally formed as a teaching club and has developed over the years into a strong competitive club with a membership of over 150. Children normally enter the Club from age 7 to 8 years with a minimum level 7 swimming attainment although older children may be accepted subject to a trial. Everyone at Ormskirk Otters who gives their time to the Club does this on a voluntary basis; many have been swimmers at the Club in the past.
The Club competes in a number of league based competitions and prides its self on being a friendly and happy Club. All the children are given the opportunity to develop and we have different training sessions based on the swimmers ability.
We are a competitive swimming Club and in addition to group events we also attend other meets throughout the year which our Competition Secretary will advertise to all eligible swimmers.
In addition to this we do hold a number of internal galas throughout the year which all swimmers are expected to participate in. This helps build confidence for the future swimming events and allows the coaches to see potential and helps with squad selection.
This has a grand finale each year with our Club Championships normally late November /early December which decides the internal winners for the year. We hold an annual awards evening the following term to present our club awards and celebrate every swimmers efforts early in the following year.
