REPORT: Friday 21st December 2018 – Christmas Development Meet

A massive well done to everyone in our first development meet of the 2018/19 season. Before jumping into the night’s events I’d like to thank everyone who helped us run the meet. Without them we simply couldn’t run these. We have 10 volunteers undertaking a Judges level 1 qualification in January which will mean we can be self sufficient in running development meets in the future and also make them official with regards to rankings. This means times can be used to qualify for county championships and local meets. They would be uploaded to https://www.swimmingresults.org/biogs/ 

It was great to see swimmers from across 4 groups in the club competing. Swimmers aged 9 to 11 were joined by Academy swimmers and all raced 25m or 50m in all four strokes. It was a fantastic night of racing with many unofficial PBs but more importantly a massive improvement in skill level from the start of the season.

For some of our youngest swimmers it was their first taste of competitive swimming and they all performed brilliantly. For our more experienced competitors it was a chance to race against one another and practice 50m race plans.

The night ended in a skins event where different coloured balls represented the stroke which each age group were to swim. After a tense competition with some close calls for who remained in the running, the winners were Maximus Murray (10 and over age group) and Jayden Skeoch (9 and over age group).
