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.
