Capricorn 13 & Under Short Course.

Date: 1 April 2014

The South Rockhampton Memorial Pool held it’s first short course meet in the FINA Pool on Saturday March 1st. Kicking off at 12:00 noon, close to 300 swimmers marched through the gates and secured their seating spot for what was sure to be an entertaining next six hours.

The pool was divided into two separate 25m pools; one race pool and one warm-up pool. These kids had the luxury to be the first athletes to avail of this set-up in Rockhampton, and many of the parents looked confused as to how this set-up was even possible. After a 12-hour set-up the day before, the facility was looking top-class on race day. 

The day started off with speed machine heats with children aged five to thirteen racing in all disciplines. Some of relay races had over 20 teams line up per heat, and everyone gave their best.

Older athletes were jealous of this new amazing facility and are looking forward to taking advantage of the next opportunity to compete here.
