We had a total of 11 swimmers travelling with the team this time down to Sunderland, a further 10 swimmers stayed with their parents and joined us at varying points of the meet.

We had managed to secure funding from various sources and also once again free mini bus from the School of Sport and Arnold Clark who kindly donated the use of a people carrier. In the end we managed to get the cost down to £235 for the 5 nights which included accommodation and food. It proved to be fantastic value for money. The staff at the Premier Inn at North Shields couldn’t have been more helpful they opened the restaurant early for us every morning and even washed and dried towels for us in the middle of the trip!!!

The biggest challenge we had was when a stomach bug swept through those attending the competition. Unfortunately six of our swimmers were affected and had to miss some swims. Fortunately it only seemed to last 24 hours and the kids bounced back the following day. We did try and book an extra room to isolate the sick children however the hotel was fully booked and that was not possible. We had to resort to moving mattresses about to ensure the bug didn’t spread within the group at the hotel!! Two of the swimmers who were sick were not staying with the team. We reinforced the importance of good hygiene especially before eating to the swimmers throughout the competition.

The general attitude from the swimmers was fantastic and they were well behaved. On the whole they took advantage of any rest time they were given and were always reasonably early to bed.
On speaking to the coaches they were delighted at the way the swimmers approached this competition as it was the first time that most of them had experienced a five day meet.

The club showed a huge improvement on last years Age Group Championships with a wider range of swimmers getting into finals.
