2. DIVISION 1 MEET REPORT

PBs were few and far between for the majority at yesterday's Division 1 Meet at the SA Sports and Aquatic Centre, but not so for 14yr old Wavemaker Kyrene O'Neill who produced two fantastic efforts resulting in a drop of -6.90 secs in the 200IM an an equally impressive 3.94 second improvement in the 100 fly in the terrific time of 1.13.71.

On debut for Barossa, Meg Wood went within a whisker of picking up a state qualifying time with a nice 0.85 PB in the 50 back, while Makayla Docherty also produced PB swims in her 50 free and 50 back.

Tyla O'Neill's improvement continued in the 100 fly, with her 1.66PB effort of yesterday making it her 4th consecutive PB performance in the event.

Good learning curve for Jack Duffin and Harliai Curthoys-Davies who performed solidly, although without PB success this time around.


3. MID-SEASON PRESENTATION AFTERNOON/SOCIAL GATHERING – AMENDED DATE (DATE TBC)

 The current proposed date for our mid-season presentation afternoon is Sunday March 17th -  time and venue TBC soon.


4. SKIPPING ROPES/ TEMPO TRAINER/OTHER REQUIRED SWIM EQUIPMENT – AQUA SPEED

Far too many swimmers are arriving regularly to training without their skipping rope. A skipping rope is a required piece of equipment for all T3 squad swimmers and above. Please ensure your swimmer has a skipping rope in their training bag – you can get one for around $2 at a discount store.

All T2 squad swimmers and above must have a tempo trainer. This is a necessary and very important part of their training equipment – tempo trainers can be purchased through Aqua Speed (see Keian)

Aqua Speed also have Arena racing goggles in stock for $30.


 5. TRAINING CHANGES THIS WEEK

Monday’s team meeting will be held from 5.00pm at the conclusion of the T3/T4 squad session.

No other changes to the timetable this week.
