Success at the First Weekend of Development Meet

The Development Meet’s first weekend was successful for CSSC swimmers who had an extremely confident and positive weekend; shaving a vast amount of seconds off of entry times, and therefore gaining a mountain of personal best times. The programme saw 9 and 10 year old girls and boys complete the Saturday (Day 1) Sessions 1 and 2, with the 11 and 12 year old girls and boys completing the Sunday (Day 2), Sessions 3 and 4, leaving those under 12 year old swimmers with next weekend to finish off all of the events. On the other hand, the 13 and 14-year-old girls and boys completed their two days of competition this weekend, competing on both the Saturday and the Sunday and all the events for their age of the competition.
