The Jindabyne Amateur Swimming Club met again last week with swimmers keen to improve on their times from the previous week. Swimmers competed in their distances for Breaststroke and then competed in the long distance freestyle event which sees children double the distance they would normally swim for freestyle.
This saw a lot of the children pushing themselves - and they surprised themselves and their parents when they did it so easily, well done keep up the great effort.
Over the past two Fridays we have seen several new members join the club - a big welcome to Chloe Hurford, Caitlin Brandon and Brooke Burns. We also welcomed back several members from last year and saw them take their first splash for the 2013/14 season. Welcome back to Sebastian and Felix Zylinski and Hannah and Luke Robinson.
The previous week saw several swimmers break their distance qualifying times for their distance and stroke; this now sees them regraded into a longer distance for that stroke. Well done to Baili Pendergast, Tamzyn Davies, Callum Dixon, Sabastian Zylinski, Chloe Hurford, Sienna Davies and Ruby Moroney.
Baili Pendergast, Callum Dixon and Tamzyn Davies go from 25 metre to 50 metre Backstroke. Sebastian Zylinski 50 meter to 100 metre Freestyle. Tamzyn Davies, Chloe Hurford, Sienna Davies, Ruby Moroney, and Baili Pendergast from 25 metre to 50 metre Freestyle.
It is great to see so many swimmers beating their times as this is what swimming club is all about, trying to beat your individual time each week for that stroke and having fun doing it with friends.
This Friday swimmers will compete in Sprint Freestyle, Backstroke and Individual Medley.
The best of luck to the swimmers who are travelling away to Narooma on Saturday and Batemans Bay on Sunday to compete in their carnivals.
New members are welcome to come along on Friday at 5pm and have a go, see what it is all about, meet new friends and have some fun. If you would like more information please contact Jack Van Dongan on 64561051 at the Jindabyne Pool, Tuesday through to Saturday from 11am to 6pm. See you there Friday.
