A message from head coach Ralph Watson
Nine of our swimmers, together with Ralph Lynch and myself attended the day, which was organised by the East Devon Network at Taunton School.
The day consisted of two, hour and a half, swim sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, with Pre pool warm up routines before each session.
An hour Land Training session and a Motivational talk with Olympic swimmer Antony James, who also did a demonstration in the pool.
Our swimmers really enjoyed the experience and with that I shall try and get some more of these days.
