The end of the training and competition season has arrived for CoB’s Junior Squads. While some of the senior swimmers will continue their training in view of the summer season of Nationals, Junior and Development Squads will enjoy a well-earned summer break, getting ready for the next, exciting season.
As it’s tradition, CoB hosted a well-attended end-of-season Fun Gala session (at the Grove Wellbeing Centre, for the second year in a row), followed by a very popular Barbecue at Cooke Rugby Club, where Club’s trophies have been awarded to some of the swimmers.
The shortlist of deserving swimmers was tough to draw, and the choices difficult. In the end, the final pick by Acting Head Coach, Richard Gheel, cut all the ties and delivered a strong list of swimmers — from across all the Squads — who distinguished themselves for technical skills, commitment, sportmanship, dedication, versatility and reliability.
City of Belfast SC is proud to present the final list of awardees — with whom they congratulate! — and showcase a fantastic set of photos of the winners with the members of the Coaching team in attendance.
Well done to everybody!!
