East Midlands Primary Schools Team Championships Para Team

East Midlands swimmers represented at the Primary English Schools Team Championships

Five swimmers represented the East Midlands at the English Schools Team Championships for Primary Schools. These are designed for Year 5 and 6 swimming teams of four taking part in Medley and Freestyle events.  The competitions are for small, medium and open size schools. Since 2013 swimmers have been included from the ESSA Regions in Para events.  Each year the number of teams participating has increased with the ability to take part in an event at Ponds Forge, Sheffield with a full spectator’s gallery alongside hundreds of their peers from all over England.

This year East Midlands came second in both relays with an extremely close race for 2nd and 3rd in the freestyle.  The swimmers were Millie Whaites (Derbyshire), Bruce Dee (Northamptonshire) and three from Leicestershire Finley Mcleod, Jacob Williams and Harrison Gent.

A forward planning date has already been given for next year – Saturday 16th June at Ponds Forge. Further details, from any school or club, can be obtained through Jill Stidever,  stidev@aol.com
