One of our talented swimmers; Isobel Vasey has been chosen to be part of the Swim England County Pathway Programme for 2018. Izzy has been selected after some fantastic swims at the recent Yorkshire County Championships where she swam breastroke in the 50m, 100m & 200m reaching the finals & achieving personal best times in all three events with the highlight coming in the 50m breastroke where she took a well-deserved silver medal in a pb time of 41.88s.
The County Pathway Programme has been developed by the England Programmes Team. Swimmers have been selected as a result of their performances at the Yorkshire Swimming Championships in February 2018. 24 swimmers have been selected (12 Male & 12 Female) all of whom will be 11 years of age at the 31st December 2018. The programme will consist of three one day camps to be held at Ashville College, Green Lane, Harrogate, HG2 9JP, on the 15th April, 8th July & 16th September 2018.
For us, a relatively small town club, having one of our swimmers selected out of the 12 female swimmers handpicked for these prestigious training camps, is brilliant news especially taking into account some of the strong completion from the big city clubs.
