As a swimmer progresses through Metro, the coach may discuss with you the option of your child joining one or two of our long distance programme events (which are normally reserved for the squad swimmers). These invitations are at Russell’s discretion and hopefully provide a little something for our younger swimmers to aspire to. Over time I am sure your children will all achieve their goals, so please don’t be offended if you hear another child has been invited when your child may not, we do not want to push anyone too soon and would hate to take away their enjoyment of swimming by asking them to swim a long distance event too soon.

Most importantly please remember, if you have any concerns or questions, please feel free to talk with Russell.
