Well another Sunday and another swimming pool!! We are at the, Worcestershire County Swimming Association, Inter Club County Relay Championsips 2014, held at Wolverhampton Central Baths.
It never ceases to amaze me when I look around these pools and see the numbers of incredible young people who train so hard to represent themselves, their club, the county, the region and even for some their country!
We hear so many negative comments about the youngsters of today, but one visit to any one of these events would re assure the sceptics in the country that there are many wonderful young people growing up in the U.K.
Of course these young people could not get themselves to training sessions or events and that is where the army of parents, grandparents and friends pull together and in the course of a year drive many miles. Another demonstration of one of the great things going on in this country.
I am sure that the powers that be at Worcestershire County Swimming Association, whose officials work tirelessly to organise and facilitate these events, must be proud of the large numbers of swimmers and spectators who turn out week in week out at these events.
To see the enthusiasm and hear the support is wonderful, we are very lucky to be able to witness this on a regular basis, and who knows one of these young people may one day be an Olympian! However if they never go any further we should all be incredibly proud of them!!
See you all soon at another hot pool!!

Some of the clubs have sent letters of support, thank you, but if we could get every member of every club to sign up to the petition we may have more influence over the decision makers. We have seen the success of these types of petition with Wolverhampton and Coventry.
