First Gala of 2020 - Southport Shrimps Relay Gala
Our first team gala of the year was a new one for Halton Swimming Club. The Southport Shrimps Relay Gala took place on Sunday 19th January at Everton Park.
This is a junior gala aimed at younger swimmers 9-12. Swimmers took part in various relays including Freestyle, Breaststroke, Butterfly and a Medley. There were also 3 cannons; girls, boys and mixed.
Behaviour by the Halton Swimmers was impeccable and team spirit was high! Older swimmers were a credit to the club, helping out and supporting those younger swimmers who were understandably nervous about competing for the first time.
Thank you as well to the coaches and poolside helpers for helping out. And of course to parents for cheering the swimmers on!
