For the first meet in April Eckington was chosen to host the first round of the event!!
This wasn’t just a regular swim meet for the youngsters this was an opportunity to really come together, build team spirit and have a lot of fun. For some of our kids it was their first experience of a competition which was fab as they were encouraged and supported throughout their experience.
