Congratulations to Lucy Oliver of A1 Squad, who has been invited to take part in the 2020 Northumberland and Durham County Swimming Camps. She was selected as a result of her outstanding performances at the recent N&D Championships, where she won 7 medals, including Gold on 50m, 100m, 200m and 400m Freestyle events.
The camps will engage with athletes in the 11-year-old age group (age on 31 Dec 2020). Swimmers are invited to attend two full days in Consett, one in March, and the other in June. The timetable for each day includes two pool sessions, a land training session and a workshop.
The camps form part of the Northumberland and Durham Development Programme and will provide an opportunity for swimmers to develop their technical, tactical, physical and psychological skills with swimmers of a similar age and ability from across the county. The camps will also provide an opportunity for swimmers to work with different coaches and to train in different environments.
Last year Hugo Douglas-Reeves and Ben Matthias took part in these camps, and in 2018 DASC was represented at them by Alex Boyer, Ruby Diment and Lewis Kestle. All are still training hard with DASC and continuing to make great progress.
We hope that Lucy will find the camps interesting and enjoyable.
