Young swimmers have ‘Fun in the Sun’

The third annual Fun in the Sun Pre-Competition Swim Meet was hosted by the Department of Sports on 23 June, 2018. Swimmers from on island Learn to Swim programs participated in the swim races.

The swim schools that participated included: iSwim Swim School, Darren Mew Swimming & Fitness and the Dept of Sports Swim School.

“This is the third year we have run this event and we had over 60 young swimmers participate at a non-team level,” said Coach Ryan Mushin of the Cayman Islands Department of Sports. “The kids swam all four strokes and a kick-board race. I’m happy to get everybody out here today and have a good time swimming”.

Coach Darren Mew added: “This meet gives them an idea of what competitive swimming is like. All the kids have a big smile on their face and they’re having a blast, this is what we want to see”.

The swim meet was for swimmers in the six years and under age category and seven and over year olds. Swimmers age ranged from five to ten years old. All swimmers received a certificate of participation for swimming in the event.

“CIASA would love to see every swim school in Cayman sign up for this event next year and give even more of our youngest swimmers a taste of competitive swimming,” said Cayman Islands Aquatic Sports Association (CIASA) Director Steve Broadbelt.
