Midlothian swimmers have been making a bit of a splash with their swim performances. Four youngsters have been selected to attend this year’s District Regional training days. Top performance times last season, meant Ria Colbridge, Jamie Ferguson, Ellie Robertson, and Lewis Thomson were amongst some of the top swimmers from the East of Scotland, in the 11 – 14 years old age category. As a result of their achievements, they have been invited to attend three intensive days of swim training at Lochgelly High School, along with other talent swimmers from teams all over the East District Region. The first of these days was 25th September, with another dates falling in November and December. The youngsters are split into different groups according to their age category and will undergo training in the pool, and also land based exercise plus other educational sessions. On completion of these three days, if they impress the coaching staff they stand a chance of being nominated to attend an additional day of training in April 2017.
Midlothian swimming, head coach Colin Barton is ‘proud of all the youngsters hard work and achievements” and is “looking forward to their future performances.”
