Next Saturday 27 April Sarah Fellner, the Swim Ireland Pathway Development Officer will give a talk and conduct a question and answer session on Long Term Athletic Development (how you progress from Learn to Swim to the Olympics!) at 9am in the morning in Nemo. I have heard Sarah talk on this topic before and can guarantee that it will be both informative and fun; and will be informed by her long experience in the Canadian system. All swimmers and parents from Learn to Swim, through Piranhas, Barracudas and Marlins are invited. There are different considerations at each level and it is great to be given an explanation of the benefits and efforts involved at each progressive level (and what to expect at the next level). We hope that you will all be able to come along. We’d appreciate if you could confirm your attendance so we can get an idea of the numbers involved.
Towards swimming as a life-long sport!
Tom Cross, SWSC President
