Day 1 of State Age Championships is done and dusted. With 27
swimmers competing in first night finals, relays or acting as
'emergencies', Surrey Park wrapped up Day 1 with a modest 9 medals
(3 gold, 3 silver & 3 bronze) and 4th position on the Club
As with most championships the day had highs and lows and the importance of maintaining a strong coach-athlete relationship is key to getting through the next 5 days.
