On Sunday the 28th of April, our Hub Head Coach, Darren Ward, delivered the first of three development opportunities to our XLR8 2.5k Club squad. The session was held at the indoor pool at FastLane Fitness and Darren was well supported by St Peter’s Coach Allaynah Hill and Huntly’s Michael Cresswell.
The 12 talented young swimmers took part in a 1.5 hour session focussed on skill development. It was fantastic to have Waikato and New Zealand representative swimmer Ben Littlejohn working with the swimmers and running some demonstrations too. It’s always great to have our senior swimmers helping to develop the next generation!
The sessions for our XLR8 2.5k Squad form part of our Regional Squads programme. The next two sessions are scheduled for the 29th of June and the 25th of August.
