Well done to the 5 swimmers from National Senior Squad who spent Halloween break in Tenerife as part of the Ulster Schools Swim Trip.
They achieved selection for the trip from their placings at the Secondary Schools Gala held in January this year. The trip takes the top 10 boys and girls (scored by their placings in the 2 events they swam at the gala).
The swimmers are James Edgar, Cameron Loan, Keelan Logan, Alexandra Hunter and Victoria Hunter. Below is some of what they thought about the experience:-
“Ten sessions of fun filled hard work but not all about training, with the water park , midnight feast and Formal, some of the other highlights. Great weather, great food, great company.” “Tenerife 2013 was an amazing trip! I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who gets the opportunity to go and I really hope I get the chance to go again next year.” “The Tenerife trip is a great opportunity to make friends in other clubs. The training is usually twice a day except for the days we went to the waterpark and the beach. If anyone gets the opportunity to go they should take it because it is a once in a lifetime opportunity to train with other swimmers from all over Ulster in a lovely setting.” “Lots of hard training but it was one of the best trips I have ever been on.”
The following swimmers have been selected to represent the Club at the Ulster Open Short Course Champs (15-17 November)
Please email email@example.com or phone 07712 175926 ASAP to let me know whether or not you can compete, so that a reserve swimmer can be called up if required.
