Congrats Tiegan Child,
Our current Junior Club Captain Tiegan has been invited to the England Programmes - Open Water Swimming meet in Majorca early this summer. Nice one Tiegan! The programme looks fantastic and for those who work hard and get the opportunity this is what you could be in for....
"Athletes will be training at the BEST Centre in Majorca and competing in the 2017 BEST Open Water Swim Festival. This will include a 1.5km, 5km and 7km/10km sea swim, which forms part of the “Colonia Classic” with all athletes entered into all three events. Swimmers aged 18yrs & over (as at 31st December) will compete in the 10km event."
These events form part of the overall strategy in the development of the swimmer pathway in England. During the camp swimmers take part in a number of sessions and competitions which aim to assist the development of skill and knowledge which the ASA England Programmes believe to be critical to open water performance swimming.
Have fun Tiegan, let us know how it goes and report back to us on your return.
