Over a beautiful & hot weekend of the 18th & 19th March we had 55 swimmers, Age and Open National qualifiers, attend development sessions with the aim of fine-tuning race skills, experiencing outdoor conditions and increasing team bonding within the Area prior to national championships on the Gold Coast.
This was achieved through fun, skilled based sessions with swimmers working on starts, turns and finishes, head to head race-pace work, relays and a BBQ breakfast.
The Age sessions were held at Lane Cove Aquatic Centre with Coaches Sam Argue (Narrabeen) and Sandi Edwards (Warringah) leading 2 sessions.
The Open session was held at Manly ‘Boy’ Charlton Swim Centre with Coaches Leanne Speechley (Knox Pymble) and Justin Rothwell (Manly) leading the session.
It was fantastic to be able to provide our National Swimmers with some outdoor pool sessions as a lead up to Nationals in the Gold Coast. A huge thanks to Luke for organising it all and to all involved in the running for an awesome couple of days!
Feedback from the sessions: “Best ever swimming day!”
