Autumn Training Camp 2018 – Ayr, Scotland

What a fantastic weekend we had when in Scotland. The coaches held both swimming and fitness training sessions for the swimmers including a demonstration from a Scotland swimmer. The swimmers also had an informative session to help them understand what was expected of them as an elite swimmer. There was also a great session from one of the parents who is a podiatrist on the potential issues our swimmers could have with their feet.

An evening of friendship and fun was held on Saturday night. Our fantastic hosts had arranged a great meal, a disco with our very own DSS-GB DJ Reuben and a fabulous goody bag of Scottish treats. We were even provided with a taste of traditional haggis, neeps and tatties on Sunday lunchtime. As well as all that we managed to cram in a committee meeting to make sure we’re keeping everything on track and a really constructive parent and carers meeting was held.

We would like to say an enormous thank you to the members’ families who organised the event. A living demonstration of that fact that We are The Team!
