Leongatha hosts regional swimming

SOUTH Gippsland Bass Swimming Club, comprising swimmers from Phillip Island through to Toora, hosted Gippsland Swimming Inc. meeting number two for the season at Leongatha’s Splash pool on Sunday, October 23.
More than 100 club members were out in force for the “Snappers” as they competed against swimmers from Traralgon, Sale, Warragul and Moe.
Swimmers competed in all four strokes over varying distances with racers keen and interesting the whole way through with plenty of PB’s being smashed and a number of swimmings collecting a stache of blue, red or green ribbons.
Swim meet three will be at Morwell Leisure Centre on Sunday, November 13.
The SGB swim team offers a dynamic coaching program that caters for a wide range of swimming development, from an introduction to squad and competitive swimming, through to a State and National level program.
The aim of the club is to provide an environment which enables each swimmer to develop to their maximum potential as swimmers and grow as a person.
The club can achieve this by coaches, parents, committee and swimmers, working together with the shared objective of encouragement, support and team comradery.
The club now has over 85 registered swimmers and has expanded its program to operate out of Wonthaggi and, as of this season, Leongatha.
