On the last day of Term 2, 2017, at Sue Pryor Swimming (SPS), Strathalbyn, the third annual SPS Carnival was held with a significant increase in participants from last year. Sue Pryor Swimming is a swim school for all ages and abilities starting from babies at 4 months old through to squad swimmers who could fit into the local Swimming Club. When swimmers reach level 7 they are encouraged to enter the SPS Carnival which is run similarly to a professional carnival with the correct marshalling, starting procedure and swimming rules enforced. This is a great way to bridge the gap between Learn to Swim and Competitive Swimming.
“The standard of swimming has improved immensely over the three carnivals which is a great credit to their teachers and the kids.” - Sue Pryor, Owner of SPS and Level 1 Swimming SA Referee and Official.
“Our first swimming carnival was in July 2015 with 10 participants, the following year saw that number double to 22 participants and this year we has a very large group of 31 swimmers. Next year we will need to plan the day differently as we had no more room for spectators.” – Tabitha Lewis, Manager of SPS and event organiser.
The team at Sue Pryor Swimming are looking forward to next year’s carnival, which will again be at the end of Term 2, as they work on developing and improving students’ strokes. Term 3 begins on the 24th of July and enrolments are now open for all ages and abilities.
