State level coach Prime stages clinic

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

SWIM­MING: Can­non­vale Can­nons hosted its last club night for 2018 with a Christ­mas theme.

Swim­mers par­tic­i­pated in some nor­mal races and fun Christ­mas re­lays and re­ally en­joyed the block of ice re­lay.

The win­ner was the team with big­gest block of ice at the end of the re­lay.

Coaches were im­pressed by the team work and how se­nior swim­mers sup­ported ju­nior swim­mers.

The club also pre­sented Ja­cob Dewis, Mikhaila Flint and coach, Mark Erick­son with their state shirts and wished them all the best at the state cham­pi­onships in Bris­bane.

Also, this week, Swim­ming Queens­land coach Barry Prime fa­cil­i­tated swim clin­ics at the Can­non­vale pool on Fri­day af­ter­noon and Satur­day morn­ing.

More than 60 swim­mers par­tic­i­pated in the work­shops.

A to­tal of 15 Can­non­vale Can­nons were se­lected for the SNQ Level 1 and 2 devel­op­ment clin­ics in Mackay on Sun­day. But, only Ja­cob and Tiana Bell risked the wet con­di­tions to at­tend the clin­ics.

High­lights from club night in­clude:

Top per­form­ers of the night were Tane Den­ni­son, Blake Hanks, Mila West­ley, Jack Moir and Su­san­nah Put­land swim­ming personal best times in all their events.

A spe­cial men­tion to Matilda Den­ni­son who took eight sec­onds off her 50m but­ter­fly time.

The Can­non­vale Can­nons Swim­ming Club would like to thank all the par­ents for re­ally em­brac­ing the Christ­mas theme and bring­ing a great ar­ray of food for club night.
