Development day encourages more people to swim
Sunday 21st June saw the first Disability Swimming Development Day in East Lothian.
The event was organised in partnership with Scottish Swimming, Scottish Disability Sport and Enjoy Leisure and two sessions were offered at Musselburgh Sports Centre, which were open to children and adults of any age at no cost.
The event was well supported by the local clubs, many of the clubs providing coaches to allow the evnt to run. With the number of coaches volunteering, we were able to provide the children on the day with 1:1 and 1:2 coaching for the hour.
Stephen Clegg (East Lothian Swim Team and Scottish Team member, Scottish record holder) was in attendance to meet the children and provide demonstrations for swimming technique.
We now hope most of these children will continue to swim at the East Lothian Disability Club and develop their skills.
