Over the course of a week over 600 children and adults took part in the Sport Relief fund raising effort, swimming 114 miles between them. The youngest participant was a 14 week old and his mum.
The swim school raised over £2000, most of the money went to Sport Relief, and the swim school also sponsored a local child who sings in the Barnsley Choir to compete in Latvia.
Well done to all the swimmers that took part, keep swimming!
The National Water Polo Academy is a six day training camp, which takes place each summer at Millfield School, with the lovely back-drop of Street in Somerset. This year we are inviting boys and girls born 2001 to the Academy, to identify and further develop the Country’s best young water polo players. One of the aims of the Academy is to identify athletes for possible selection for high level training at our National Talent camps in Cardiff commencing January 2015.
