Otter Cove Otters
Swimming is an individual activity and a team sport. Children can easily set and achieve tangible goals. The harder they work, the sooner they’ll notice improvements in fitness and self-confidence. Swim teams are structured to introduce and refine swimmer skills and abilities as participants progress from a learn-to-swim program to a recreational competitive swim team. Swim Team lays the foundation and encourages swimmer’s long-term skill development. Swimmers will practice a minimum of three days per week and participate in local swim meets to be held on Thursday nights and/or Saturday mornings. Participants receive a swim cap and t-shirt.

What to do if bad weather occurs before practice: The coach and pool management will determine if there will be practice. One hour before a practice, you may call Otter Cove Aquatic Park at 630-513-4377 or Pottawatomie Community Center at 630-513-6200 to determine if practice has been cancelled. This decision will not be made prior to 5:30pm for night practices and 6am for morning practices.
What to do if bad weather occurs during practice: The coach and pool management will determine to end practice in inclement weather conditions (lightning, thunder, heavy rain…). All patrons will be asked to leave the water and pool deck. The coach and team will be directed to the hallways inside the main building (building B) of Otter Cove Aquatic Park. Kids will be allowed to call for rides. Coach will remain on site until all participants are picked up.
