Swim Club is on again this Thursday night- it is a night for all ages of swimmers. Our younger swimmers have really enjoyed having a chance to practice racing and they are improving each week. The chance for them to see our older swimmers race is a great opportunity and it is great to see our senior swimmers cheering the younger children along. This is our second last club night of the season.
