This weekend saw the cream of Gauteng’s young swimming stars come and swim trials to qualify for the South African School Games that will take place 9-13 April 2017. The spirits were high and much excitement was in the air as the young learner athletes gave their very best in the water. Their commitment and love of the game is always such a joy to watch at these galas. The event took place at the Hillcrest Swimming Pool in Pretoria – the home to Northern Tigers Swimming.
Learners arrived on Friday afternoon from schools across our beautiful province ranging from Primary, Secondary and Special Needs Schools. This post is to say well done to ALL who participated – you have done our Gauteng Province proud.
A special word of thanks goes to Ms Cathy Spence, the Championships Convenor who ensured the smooth running of the games before and during this 2 day event. Her love, passion, and commitment towards our youth is always deeply inspiring.
Cathy was assisted by a wonderful team of people from many different divisions of Gauteng Province – who all as a whole made the games a huge success. Well done Team Gauteng!
