News update: Robbie H and Barry Alldrick earn Swim England National Event Camp Selections 2019
As part of the Swim England Pathway Programme, we would like to congratulate Robbie H on his selection to the National Event Camp starting on the 17th December for 4 days. He will be joining a cohort of 90 other swimmers who are generally British Summer Championship Medallists in each Olympic event.
The Camp is split across Sheffield or Millfield for 4 days depending on each athlete's main event. The term 'National Event Camp' is because swimmers are selected based on performances in their best event. During the camp, a small group of athletes will work intensively with a coach and sports science support staff to enhance tactical, technical, physical and emotional knowledge and development.
Whilst Robbie heads to Sheffield, our very own PSC Head Coach Barry Alldrick will be the Head Coach for the Millfield Camp, overseeing each of the particular event groups. His main aim is to identify and follow a camp culture using the British Swimming Optimal Athlete Development Framework, with further objectives to improve athlete’s independence and understanding of the journey ahead through further and higher education.
The Swim England National Event Camp for 2019 will be held at Ponds Forge in Sheffield and Millfield School in Street from 17th to 20th December.
We would like to congratulate Robbie and Barry on their selections and wish them an enjoyable camp.
