Congratulations to Owen Webster and Finn Jeffery both 11 years old for being selected for the Regional Development Camp in January.

The Region are hosting a development weekend for talented swimmers, working in partnership with the English Programmes Team from the ASA. The weekend will consist of pool sessions, workshops and land training, which are all integral to performance swimming.

This residential camp at Culford School, Bury St Edmunds will be attended by selected swimmers who met the selection criteria chosen by the Region. The criteria was as follows; "The 1st, 2nd and 3rd ranked swimmer, born 2002 and 2003, male and female, for each of the Olympic events, as at 27th October 2014.

With both the boys in the younger age bracket this is an excellent achievement.

Nick Thompson has also been invited as one of the coaches of this camp, a great opportunity to expand his knowledge from some of the Region’s top coaches.
