Arden Hills Otters Summer Recreational TeamThe Arden Hills Otters recreational swim team season runs from April until the end of July. The team competes in the Nor-Cal Swim League, which has 24 competitive teams in four different conferences.
The season begins with the Swim Team Registration Night in February every year at Arden Hills. This is a great opportunity to have any questions or concerns addressed. The first day of practice will begin the first week of April each year, and practice times will be available at Registration Night.
The Otters summer recreational swim team is a highlight of our swimming program each summer and a favorite among parents. The focus is team oriented with an emphasis on fun. Many facilities enjoy making an outing of the 5 to 10 meets on the schedule (most on Saturday mornings) throughout the months of June and July. Practices run from mid-April through the end of July.
Swimmers from the ages of 5 to 18 practice and compete in four competitive strokes (freestyle, backstroke, butterfly and breast stroke). Interested participants must be proficient in at least two strokes. A qualified and knowledgeable coaching staff leads workouts after school in the spring and in the mornings all summer. The season culminates with a championship meet where several area teams compete for top team honors. While swimmers work towards best times, the goal is to develop race strategies and foster a love for competition in swimming.
The Otters are family oriented with many of the events and activities being designed for families. Whether it is the family water park trip, a River Cats Baseball outing, Team BBQ, Team Ice Cream Social, Adult Social or just enjoying the exciting swim meets, there is something for everyone. Don’t let this exciting way to spend your summer go on without you.
