The Aquatic Academy recently held its annual Award ceremony. The Academy has put the American Swim Coaches lessons and teachings into practice which has resulted in excellent improvements and results. ESP placed 12th at the Gauteng Level 2 Regionals with a small team of 12 swimmers behind very large clubs that enjoy multiple coaches and squad groups around the provinces. The ESP team was too small to compete in relays – yet they managed to hang in the top placings. 70 clubs took part. Savannah Mitchell and Kyle Mckenzie won the top awards for overall Best Female and Best Male swimmers. Along with Murray Copeland they were selected to be part of the Eastern’s Strategic Development Squad. .
