East Otago swimming champs

By Cherie Oldham

Report and Results

(Swimming; not just a survival skill but a skill that opens the door
to the enjoyment of water sports)

Well done to all children who attended swim club this season. The
improvement in the swimming skills of all of you has been fantastic
which is very rewarding for Janice, Talia and I as the coaches. We
look forward to seeing you next season, (start Tues October 12th, ph

I would like to thank Janice Byrne and Talia Oldham who have done a
fantastic job coaching the children this year, the effort you have put
in is greatly valued by me and all members of the club . A huge thank
you also to Loraine Clearwater, our Club Treasurer, who not only
organized money collection but helped with the organization of the
club champs. Finally, thank you to Stephanie Kelly for helping to
organize the club champs and all the parents who support Swim Club by
bringing their children and helping at our club champs.

Since I started coaching at the East Otago Swim Club the number of
children coming has increased to the point where more coaches had to
be trained and club coaching time has increased to 2 afternoons,
Tuesday and Thursday after school this season. This has allowed
children to learn in smaller groups. The increase in numbers is very
positive and what I have found especially rewarding this season, is
the number of children aged 6 years and under who have achieved
swimming 20m, (1 length) in one stroke or more. Fantastic effort kids!

Congratulations to Talia who completed her swim coaching
qualifications at the start of this season through Swimming NZ.
