Competition starts for real in 2019 this weekend with 26 North Ayrshire Swimmers heading to Tollcrosss for the West District round 1 meet.
“We’re looking for better performances from the start of last season and to continue with the skills we’ve been working on and, hopefully, get a few medal positions,” says Head Coach, Jess Wilkie.
“Long course racing is completely different and there’ll be some kids who come out of the woodwork who aren’t that good at starts or turns but have fast swimming speed.
“We’ve had a couple of long course sessions in the build-up to this which will help us.
“We continued training through the Christmas and New Year holidays, and the few days off the kids had has probably done them some good , they’ve come back with a little bit of drive which is what we always want.”
