Last week (September 26th – 28th) the National Age Group Team spent three days at Vierumäki sports training center. The top seeded girls and boys swimmers born in 2002 – 2003 and 2001 – 2002 respectively were invited to take part in the first training camp of the year. The aim of the camp was to introduce the participants to the national swimming team culture of sportsmanship and to provide for both coaches and swimmers to get to know each other a little bit better. The schedule was quite tight, as usual, and there was actually no free time at all. Two swimming sessions were held each day and besides that there were both lectures and different kind of physical dry land activities in which everybody had to take part.
A nice camp according to Emilie, who was very pleased to be there once again!
