Youngsters hone skills
TAKING A BREATH: Rebekah Duffin practices her swimming technique. ABOUT 35 Mundubbera children were getting cool in the pool on Sunday afternoon at the come-and-try swimming day.
Breaststroke and freestyle seemed to be the favourites in the swimming stakes and a bit of Australian crawl, or dog paddle, was going on in the shallow end.
“We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who came to our Go Swim come and try day,” club president Michelle Fry said.
“I am so happy to see new faces at the pool today, that is always a positive thing.
“We hope everyone had a fun time and we are looking forward to seeing some new faces Tuesday night at club night.”
Raine Eastcott, 6, was showing some potential in the breaststroke and head coach Roslyn Mason had noted that Raine must have strong leg movement to achieve a great glide between strokes.
“My favourite stroke is froggy because it is easy. I like swimming because it’s very refreshing,” Raine said.
“The best thing about swimming club is that I get to go swimming.”
Coach Mason was putting a discerning eye over the newcomers and summing up their strengths.
“My vision for the season is to have plenty of children coming along and enjoying themselves and improving their times.”
Mundubbera Swimming club is looking great after a come and try day that attracted lots of swimmers.
