The Shrimps gala is a chance for the younger swimmers at the club to get their first taste of what competitions are like. Held before the Micro League season gets under way, it's a great practice run for those that are to compete this year and also a great opportunity for next years Micro League swimmers.
They compete in all 4 strokes against stiff competition from other local clubs.
A big well done to all our Mini Marlins that competed in their first gala, they did the club proud.
Nail biting and nervous they all showed great team spirit cheering on their team members and conducted themselves brilliantly in their first competitive racing environment. The team were racing by age 7/8 years, 8/9 years.
Head Coach Mary Parkinson said “The shrimp’s gala is a chance for the younger swimmers to get their first taste of what competitions are like, it was a long evening and we had some great individual results. It was great to watch and see our future club swimmers”.
Well done to all the team:
Alex Fitzpatrick, Hannah Astles, George Wilson, Jack Hughes, Piper Stevens, Isabelle Dunne, Theo Sanderson, Rebecca Dunkiert, Masie Owen, Molly Barker, Liam Donahoe, Liam Hardman, Rebecca Rawlinson, Oliver Goldthorpe, Catherine Samways, Katy Henry, Oliver Winter, Lauren Nielson, Kiers Dunstan, Kayden Healey, Sam Walton.
