The competitive side of Oban Otters takes competant swimmers from the swim school who show interest and dedication and wish to take their swimming further. They are given a more intense training programme to improve their technique and stamina so that they can compete at the different events throughout Scotland.
These can be local school competitions throughout Argyll, the club gala or the various graded and open meets throughout Scotland (and beyond). Graded meets allow the aspiring swimmer to start competing among children of similar ability as there are time limits on the races governing the fastest time it can be done in. For more info on how these meets work feel free to ask a commitee member.
Many long standing Club records have been beaten recently by Oban Otters swimmers at various meets around Scotland and the club championships – visit the Records section of the website to see the champion swimmers!
Club Championships were held on Sunday 29th May. Lots of amazing swimming and four club records were smashed by Ella MacKechnie. Well done Ella!!
