Firstly a massive well done to all the swimmers that took part in the time trials this morning, it was fantastic to see the progress that the swimmers have made over the past few months and there was many very impressive swims and times set.
Thank you to all the helpers that came onto poolside to assist and also to Neil for organising the event.
I have attached all the times, but can I stress that times are not everything! A lot of pressure is sometimes placed on the times/ positions that swimmers achieve (whether a swimmer is 8 or 18!), however as coaches we will be looking more at the improvements the swimmers have made on their technique and skills. Swimmers will race better and faster when they focus on skills, technique and enjoying the race, rather than on beating a certain time. Their will be plenty of opportunities in the years to come to beat PBs and win!
Again congratulations to all for a successful time trials, I hope the swimmers all enjoyed racing and are now eager to enter competitions outside of the club environment.
