With Olympia still out of commission, it’s another trip to Aberdeen to race in the combined Midland District and North District Age Group Champs. With a mixture of swimmers aiming for SNAGS times and swimmers making their Long Course debut, Kinross Otters has a small team of 12 athletes taking part across 2 days. A great mix of swimmers chasing times and others gaining vital LC and ‘big meet’ experience.
We’re off to a good start with both Charlotte and Stuart returning for tonight’s finals; Charlotte in 10th place for 100Bk and Stuart as 1st Reserve for 50Bk.
Charlotte also scored a Bronze medal for her 200Fr.
Huge PBs for Anna H and Anna J, wee PBs for Tom & Mia and a Bronze medal and SNAGS consideration time for Matthew in the 200Fly!!

Our final pic from a fantastic weekend away in Aberdeen. Just shy of her 12th birthday, Mia took Bronze in the 11-13 year old 200Bk with a 6 second improvement on her entry time!
Throughout the weekend all of our athletes showed growth in their determination, development, understanding, independence and friendship. All attributes important to their continued progression. We are looking forward to sharing these opportunities with even more swimmers over the coming year!
