HISTORY OF THE BV OTTERS
The BV Otters are a competitive swim club that has been in operation since 1991 thanks to parents who seized the opportunity that came with the opening of the BV Regional Pool. We are a Winter Club - which means we swim from September to June each year.
Over the last 20 years, the club has continued to expand in membership and quality of performance. Many Otters through hard work and dedication attain times which allow them to compete in swim meets at the Provincial and National levels.
We are one of five amateur swim clubs spanning the area between Smithers and the Queen Charlotte Islands that form the Northwest Region of our parent organization -Swim BC. While many of our meets are held within our region, we also regularly compete in Prince George and other communities throughout BC. When our team travels to meets outside of our region we travel as Points North Swim Association, which is currently comprised of Smithers, Terrace, Kitimat and Prince Rupert. Massett also belonged to Points North but have had to recently close their pool down and are waiting to have another built, we hope to have them back soon.
