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 6 or 7 although older children may be accepted subject to a trial. Everyone at Ormskirk Otters gives their time voluntarily and many have been swimmers at the Club past or present.
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.
If you feel are an interested swimmer and can swim to a standard that would benefit our team please do not hesitate to contact us on the 'contact us' link near the top of the menu page on the right hand side.
