Dean Martin Memorial Swim Classic
The 2016 Dean Martin Memorial AB Long Course Swim Classic is now on at the National Aquatic Centre. Session two for 10 and under takes place this morning at 8:30, while session three for 11 and over (CARIFTA Age Group) begins at 1 p.m.
The event is the season opener for the Amateur Swimming Association of Jamaica in which swimmers will be looking to make their CARIFTA cuts and measure themselves against international counterparts using the 2013-2019 Motivational Age Group Time Standards. These time standards are designed to encourage age-group swimmers to step their swimming up to the next level. Obtaining a time in the AA category will get a swimmer selected to train for the national development squad. CARIFTA 2017 will be held from April 12-16 next year in The Bahamas.
