West Dorset Summer Open Meet

It was time to head west to the familiar venue of Dorchester as Poole’s developing swimmers took the opportunity to compete at the Swim West Dorset Level 3 Summer Meet.

It what became a very successful two days the club returned with a sack full of medals and person best times.

The meet saw the rise of the club’s younger athletes, some of which this meet was their first competition meet. The atmosphere on Poolside was filled with peer support, cheering and laughter which had a great impact throughout the meet, making a great supportive environment.

Across all the swimmers a noticeable improvement on stepping up for the finish of races and the positioning on race blocks highlighted the teams hard work and mindset when approaching races. It was great to see these on display and the future is certainly looking bright for the younger upcoming stars for Poole!

All in all a very promising outcome from Poole. Well done.
