It was great to see so many swimmers turn out for the Annual Little Sprouts Gala at Haslemere Swimming Club on Sunday evening.
With 25m and 50m races in every stroke, a showcase 100m IM and relays to finish there was something to suit everyone. Designed as a gentle introduction to competing for those swimmers just beginning their competitive journey it was also a great opportunity for more experienced swimmers to show their talent.
It was great to see everyone diving from the blocks and attempting tumble turns but it was especially good to see the competitive team spirit of our future HSC team members as they raced to the finish every length.
A bit of fun at the end, the Christmas hat race provided plenty of laughs especially as some of the hats seemed determined not to cooperate.
Thank you to the coaches for their hard work and all the parents who volunteered their time to come poolside and make the evening as realistic as possible for those competing.
Don't forget the whole club fun session on Sunday 17th December (5-7pm).
