WDSC Comp Swim Camp 2019
Malta Feb 2019
Congratulations – David and the coaching team have selected you to attend the 2019 Swim Camp in Malta. Details of this camp are below. The coaching team plan to run a training camp for Senior Competitive squad each year or biennially between Feb-Apr and will form an important part of your training programme each season. Whilst the full benefits of such a camp won’t be seen immediately, it has long term benefits to your training programme over the course of the season and years.
First selection: Abigail Kennedy, Ajai Gill, Alex Mills, Alex Quinn, Angela Komasiak, Ben Walford, Carlos Bakker-Noguer, Charlotte West, Connor Smith, Emily Gladding, Emma Manning, Gregory du Tertre, Harriet Pugh, Imogen Sargent, India Crawshaw, Isla-May Dilinchev, Jack Reed, James Lewis, Katelin Philips, Kathryn Reid, Katie Crowhurst, Laura Williams, Liam Smith, Maisie Godbolt, Max Bourne, Michael Conway, Naveesha Karunanayaka, Paolo Mura, Ronnie Hester, Tia Lomas
Second selection: Should places remain, swimmers will be selected based on those remaining places.
Whilst we view this camp as an important part of the training cycle and a new opportunity for swimmers in the competitive pathway, swimmers should not feel under any pressure to attend our swim camps. We recognize the financial pressure on families and your swimmer should feel assured that not attending this year does not exclude them being invited in subsequent years.
There are potential opportunities for swimmers to access grants with local organisations in order to support their attendance on the camp; equally swimmers will have the possible opportunity to fundraise. I would like to think that each swimmer would take some personal responsibility in finding ways of supporting themselves to attend the camp.
We have decided to select Malta and the Tal-Qroqq University Pool Complex for the 2019 camp. Malta will offer the best opportunities for good weather, facilities, accommodation, safety, and food in February. Accommodation at the Kennedy Nova Hotel is a short walk to the pool facilities and offers excellent accommodation and catering.
The indicative cost is £900; this has been estimated using a quote from Sports Abroad but with no firm flight costs as these have not yet been secured; therefore there could be some adjustment on this. The cost of a team Malta 2019 T-shirt is also included in the overall costs as all swimmers will need to wear this for travelling.
Please return the response slip to David by email by Sunday 2nd September. We have set up 2 payment plans to enable budgeting. We are prepared to take a maximum of 30 swimmers and if this is realised it will help to keep the costs down. Swimmers must be aged 13 at the start of the camp and have been selected from the following squads: Senior Competitive and Junior Competitive.
