Locke key to older swimmers’ success
MATURE-aged swimmers have joined the Red Sharks Swim Team at Challenge Stadium.
Team owners David Locke, of City Beach, and AJ McDonald, of Doubleview, have started a swimming group for older swimmers to complement the social swim squad they started last year.
“We started it for the same reason we started the kids group… people want to feel like they’re part of a community,” Locke, a surf lifesaving champion, said.
“It’s for fun and fitness and they get a bit of technique out of it.
“It’s about getting them comfortable in the water and building their confidence.”
The group of about 12 swimmers range in age from 30-50 at the moment and some are the parents of younger swimmers in the Red Sharks.
