Over 700 masters from all over Britain turned out to compete in the British Masters National Championships over the weekend in the Plymouth Life Centre.
The three-day event turned out to be a great success with many swimmers praising the venue, the organisation and the friendliness and efficiency of the officials.
A big vote of thanks must to go to the many Devon officials who gave up their time to volunteer to help out over the weekend.
Thank you so much to all of you.
It was great to see so many friendly faces on poolside.
Having this event on our doorstep was a fantastic opportunity for Devon swimmers to compete in a National event, without having to travel too far and happily many took advantage of this.
Well done and thank you, to all who took part and helped make it such a memorable weekend
The first of the talent camp days was held at Mount Kelly on the 22ndApril 2018. The event was attended by 24 swimmers that had been selected following the Devon Championships and 8 staff to support the swimmers. In total 12 clubs from across the county were represented.
The day consisted of a one hour gym session which focussed on Fundamental Movement Skills such as coordination, throwing, jumping and balance. There were two one hour pool sessions, held in the 25m pool, where the focus was very much on skills such as streamlining, aquatic alignment, underwater skills and transition into the stroke, although there was still time for a very exciting skills relay at the end of the second session. A one hour presentation was given in the afternoon on Effective Stroke Technique by Head Coach, Neil Shire, which was attended by both swimmers and parents.
The objective of the day was not only to pass on high standards of skills and behaviours to the swimmers that can be taken back to their home programmes but also to develop the skills and knowledge of the support staff of coaches and team managers. British Swimming very much see these days as the first step along the development pathway of both swimmers and support staff. Two further talent days with the same swimmers and support staff is planned for July and October.
