20170423 Swindon Swim Squad Open Meet
Swindon Swim Squad Open Meet
Swindon Swim Squad held a Level 4 open meet at The Link Centre, Swindon, on 23rd April. Chippenham ASC had a small team of 6 swimmers attend and it was a first open meet for 3 of the team. The swimmers ranged in age from 8 to 12 and they competed in a total of 28 races.
The swimmers competed well at this busy open meet and awards were given to the top 6 swimmers with medals for the top 3 in each age group. Any PBs were rewarded with a lolly which went down very well with the participants. The team won an impressive 9 gold medals and many PBs were also swam.
Darren Hall and Sue Edwards very kindly gave up their time to officiate even though their own children were not swimming. Tegan Cairns also gave up her time to help the team managers with the young team, providing them with valuable support and advice.
Well done to all swimmers.
