1971
EARLY BEGINNINGS

It is unclear when the club first started, however the first players were registered with the Gozo Aquatic Association on July 28, 1971, and thus this is considered as the founding date. The first players included Anton Refalo, Victor Grech, George Calleja, Carmel Debattista and Frank Masini. Otters has humble beginnings in the Gozitan Waterpolo League, starting from its second division. Eventually all the other teams (Għajnsielem, Sea Urchins, Blue Sharks, Dolphins, Whales, Penguins) became defunct and Otters joined the national league system.

1977-1982
OTTERS JOINS THE MALTESE LEAGUE

Otters first fielded an Under-18 team within the Maltese Aquatic Sports Association of Malta in 1977 as an experiment. Eventually, in 1980, Otters started to test the Maltese waters again, and by 1982, they grew too strong within Gozo and thus the club decided to join the Maltese league system for good.

2010-NOW
PROUD OF OUR CLUB'S HISTORY

The history of a club is the history of its ups and downs, of its successes and failures. Everyone likes to relive the magic moments of success; the time when dame luck seems to smile unembarrassed upon his club. But one must not forget the moments of frustration and failure; the time when everything seems to go wrong. It is with these memories in mind that one has to look upon the fifty years of Otters A.S.C.
