The GB coaching team were delighted to welcome 31 swimmers to the training camp in Nottingham this April. There were plenty of “old hands” amongst the swimmers to help get the new swimmers organised and to help them to join in. Saturday started with a land training session. The swimmers will all receive copies of the exercises so they can practise at home.

There was a great pool session later in the afternoon with time trials for those wanting times for the European Championships in Paris. We all then headed off to the pub for a meal and some social time for both swimmers and carers alike.

An early start on Sunday for another session in the pool. Each individual swimmer ended the camp with things to work on to improve their performance. There were a lot of snoozy swimmers on the way home on Sunday. Luckily we had Bank holiday Monday to get over it.

With enormous thanks to the coaching team for their dedication and commitment to the swimmers and to Team Manager, Keith Banks, for all his hard work in organising the event.
