Over the course of the last 6 weeks, our swimmers have competed in the Essex Age Group Championships both at the London Aquatic Centre and at Basildon Sporting Village. We have had an array of achievements across the various age ranges resulting in medals, pennants, and even an Essex Best Time. We could not be more elated and prouder.

We are confident that our next generation of young swimmers will be met with huge success in their future swimming endeavours. Many of our swimmers have also achieved Regional Qualifying times for the regional events being held in May. Warmest congratulations to all our swimmers and in particular to Sean C (2 bronze medals), Reece B (1 bronze medal), Jes S (2 silver medals), and Charley J (2 gold and 2 silver medals). Charley has also received an Essex Best Time for the 100m backstroke – a phenomenal achievement. Pennant winners this year are Eliza S, Sean C, Jes S, Charley J, Ayla Z, Isla O’D, and Beatriz A. A special mention should be given to Charley, Sean, Jes, and Ayla who all finished in the top 10 overall in their respective age groups. We are also delighted to announce that EFDSC finished 13thoverall out of 33 clubs across the county. The future is certainly bright, and we are thrilled with our swimmers’ performance, dedication, and commitment.

Please find attached some photos of the events.
