Friday Night Level 5 Meet

Post date: 21-May-2017 15:51:33

The club and its volunteers decamped to Rossington Leisure Centre on Friday 19th May to put our Friday night Sharks through their paces against their counterparts at Rossington. This was an individual gala where medals were up for grabs in the following age groups:

7s, 8s, 9s, 10s, 11s, 12s, 13s, 14s, 15s and 16+

We had aimed to do all four strokes but due to technical difficulties we only managed to complete 25m races in Fresstyle, Breaststroke and Butterfly.

In total there were 72 swimmers from the two clubs and by the comments on Facebook there was a lot of very happy boys, girls, mums, dads, carers and grand-parents. The gala was aimed to be friendly but with the aim for each swimmer to test themselves against swimmers of the same age and the consensus was that this was achieved.

We'd like to congratulate all the swimmers that took part and thank all the volunteers for their time and effort.

We will be sending round a questionnaire to find out what everyone thought of the event with the idea to run a similar event around Christmas - this time with a backstroke and possibly an Individual Medley!
