Season Sprint Starter
Saturday 5th September saw Halstead Swimming Club host the 3rd Season Sprint Starter @ Braintree Swim Centre. Just over 200 swimmers competed at the event; clubs travelled from both Essex, Suffolk, Cambridgshire & London to attend.
The meet gave Halstead's swimmers the opportunity to shine. Outstanding performance in particular was given by Eloise Conway & Theo Park who were both awarded Top Boy & Top Girl in their specific age groups. Eloise went onto break two club records in the 50m Freestyle and 100 IM. Halstead's team achieved lots of podium finishes, personal bests and first swims. Head Coach Roger Duncombe expressed his delight with the all round performance with his team; "It's great to see the hard work and dedication being reflected in the individuals results"
Meet promoter Donna Hall would like to thank all the local businesses that kindly donated gifts/services as raffle prizes. Donations were received from Sainsbury's, Toy Crazy, Costa Coffee, Co Co Tanning, The Clean Team, Feathers and D Fine.
Halstead Swimming Club will be holding their next trial in November. If you would like to train to become a Competitive Swimmer you can contact Alix our new member coordinator on firstname.lastname@example.org.
