Young­sters hone skills

Central and North Burnett Times - - JUNIOR SPORT -

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.”
