Swimming clinic to be held next month

PNG Swimming Inc (PNGSI) will be organising a FINA BSP coach and swim teacher clinic next month in the nation’s capital.

President of PNGSI, Elizabeth Wells said the clinic will run from September 27 to October 1, and is for interested volunteers in the community who have a passion to become swim teachers or coaches to further develop and promote the sport. 

She said the clinic will be run in the lead up to the 2016 TNT national short course swimming championships, and will be run by John Bladon who will be returning to the country to conduct the clinic and also attend the TNT National Championships.

Wells added that the Boroko Amateur Swimming Club (BASC) will be holding a fundraising dinner on October 1 at the Gateway Hotel to help raise the necessary funds to develop athletes to become stars of the future.

She said Matthew Dunn will be the guest speaker for the event.
