Congratulations to Harry Whitfield (A1 squad) and April Mansfield (A2 squad) who have been selected to be part of the Northumberland and Durham County Swimming Camp 2021.
The camp forms 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 camp will also provide an opportunity for swimmers to work with different coaches and to train in a different environment.
Because of the pandemic, the programme was unable to run the face to face camp in 2021, therefore this camp will engage with athletes in the 11 year old age group where age is defined as at 31st December 2021. This will ensure that the athletes from this age group haven’t missed out on a training opportunity in 2021.
The course will run for one day at the end of January 2022. The syllabus for this camp has been prescribed by the nationally focused England Programmes team to ensure a seamless development pathway within the sport. Across the day, swimmers will undertake both technical work in the pool, a ‘swim specific’ dryland workshop as well as a number of educational workshops.
Good Luck swimmers and enjoy your day.
