Addison Otters swim team invites kids to check them out

NEW HAVEN/BRISTOL — Coaches of the Addison Otters Swim Team are inviting area youngsters to come learn more about the organization’s program this week.
The Otters will host an information and registration night on Wednesday, Oct. 16, beginning at 6 p.m. at the New Haven firehouse. All youth in grades K-12 are welcome.
The Addison Otters is a competitive swim team that focuses on providing instruction and training in ways that encourage and support all swimmers to achieve their highest potential, with as many members as possible swimming in championship finals at the end of the season.
Coaches said that along with training and improving technical swimming techniques, members will have the opportunity to learn strong self-discipline and sportsmanship and to develop a strong sense of responsibility and independence. These valuable life lessons are the foundation of the team. It is the intent that all swimmers develop an appreciation for the sport and thoroughly enjoy swimming. 
The team practices are every weekday from 4-6 p.m. at the Mount Abe pool. Specific times are dependent on age and ability. Practices start Oct. 28.
Kids interested in a free swim clinic are welcome to the pool on Tuesday, Nov. 5, and Thursday, Nov. 7, 4-6 p.m. These sessions are designed to introduce potential members to the team and answer question they may have about what it means to be an Addison Otter.
More information is on the website addisonotters.com. Direct question to Addison Otters board president Cindy Mayer via email at [email protected] or by phone at 453-5129.
