Swimmers selected are based on their Cheshire Cat / BAGCAT position and points gained at the Cheshire County Age Group Competition held earlier in the year. Where possible the top 8 boys and girls from the 10, 11 and 12 year old age groups are invited to attend. This year there were 40 swimmers able to attend the packed schedule which ran from 9.00a.m. until 4.00p.m.
Michael Rock led the pool sessions demonstrating stroke technique and skills, assisted on poolside by Les Collier.
Andy Shepherd from British Swimming gave a presentation covering Nutrition and Performance.
Lifestyle and the Land Training sessions were run by Alex Law, concentrating on fitness, but with some exercises designed to improve starts, turns and free swimming.
There was a question and answers session at the end for Michael and he spent quite some time signing autographs for the swimmers!
Thanks go to Elaine Ludgate for organising the day.
