Welcome to the Dereham Otters Swimming Club Website

The Dereham Otters Swimming Club caters for swimmers of all ages and ability, starting with Novices through to the Performance Squad. Weekly training sessions are provided both at the Dereham Leisure Centre Swimming Pool and the Swanton Morley School Pool, with progressive teaching leading through ultimately to squad training and competition. Various levels of competition are catered for and training tailored to suit, from in-house fun galas to county and regional competition.

Dereham & District Amateur Swimming Club (DDASC), is a non-profit making organisation dedicated to the improvement and progress of competitive swimming, in all ages and to all social backgrounds.

We aim to encourage and develop good sportsmanship, individual integrity, team spirit and provide an environment in which swimmers can realise their full potential at all levels.


Our next trials will be after the summer break.
