Riversdale Otters provide the best and safest environment for all of our swimmers while keeping a positive view of what is best for the overall team.. The coaches, teachers and the committee at Riversdale Otters are committed to provide the best and safest environment for all of our swimmers while keeping a positive view of what is best for the overall team.
Our program is designed to empower all our swimmers to become champions both in and out of the water.
Irrespective of age or the duration of our swimmers career, each swimmer is an important and valued part of the team.
We count on all members of the club to contribute to the betterment of the envisaged program and expect each swimmer to continue to uphold the strong traditions of excellence of former years and now intended in this program.
This structured training program affords each swimmer to experience personal success and improvement.
The basic strategy is to produce long term participation in the sport rather than sport term age group stardom.
The structured route each swimmer will travel should lead them to fulfillment as a young adult.
All swimmers have a different plan and their training differ from others accordingly.
