On the 26th and 27th of September a number of our Junior Athletes took part in the Abb Juniors Camp held at Abbotsleigh Aquatic Centre.
Swimmers learnt the importance of activation and routine around both training and racing. Had the chance to work on stroke technique and building their stroke around body position in the water. They participated in team building activities and became expert critical thinkers with applying themselves to riddles and problem solving. They then got to see themselves in action each afternoon with filming for each stoke and individual feedback.
On Day 2, the swimmers got the opportunity to spend time with Olympian Travis Mahoney. They were able to hear his story before asking all the important questions, like what his favourite lollies were, or telling him about how they hold all but one of the swimming records at school.
The swimmers finally had the opportunity to test themselves in a different way, at District 3 with Dodgem Cars and Laser Tag.
At the end of the 2 days there were some very tired bodies heading home, with a lot of knowledge to apply to their swimming in the future.
A big thank you to Jacqui for her efforts with lunch on both days.
