Swim into the School Year
BLUE WATER OTTERS & PORPOISE CLUBS – Has your child been swimming like a fish this summer? Are they ready for it to end? Or do they want to continue and join one of the Y’s swim clubs to compete against each other and other area swim teams?
Blue Water Otters (BWO) swim team is accepting new members NOW! The BWO swim team is a Y-based team which competes in the YMCA Swim League and USA Swimming. Swimmers must be between the ages of 6 & 18, be a member of the YMCA of the Blue Water Area and have a current physical. Practice times vary Monday – Thursday.
Porpoise Club and Porpoise Club Plus will give your 6 – 18 year old introduction to competitive swimming and can add land training to enhance their stroke development while building endurance. These clubs give children the experience of being part of a team without the full commitment of the competitive swim team. Practice times vary on Tuesdays & Thursdays.
