Head coach Bates hopes to build on strong performance of programmes

The London Aquatics Performance Programme (LACPP) will hope to build on the success of last year’s events after announcing their first swimming camp of 2016.

Led by head coach Lisa Bates, LACPP will hold their first youth development camp of the year during the February half-term school break and hope to attract more young swimmers from local areas to get involved.

Taking place at the London Aquatics Centre from 15th to 17th February, the camp aims to develop young swimmers and unlock their full potential as they receive top quality expertise of coaches Lisa Bates and Alexander McDonald.

Bates, who is central to the work done with the programme’s elite swimmers including Olympian Aimee WiIlmott, says the camp is an excellent opportunity for young swimmers.

“Our camps are the best opportunity for young swimmers to see what the LACPP is all about,” said Bates.

“We want to improve the level of swimming in the local area as much as we can and anyone who takes part in our camps is sure to improve their swimming through the coaching and exposure to a professional environment that we can offer.”

The fun and friendly camps are aimed at children aged between seven and 10 who are currently in ‘learn to swim’ programmes (Level 7 and above) with the sole purpose of fast-tracking their swimming skills to the next level.

The three-day event, costing just £5 a day, will offer skill refinement to improve technique and develop all 4 strokes.

Places are limited and the closing date to register is 10th February.

Following the camp there is also scope for swimmers to join the programme’s legacy squads set up to further develop swimmers and introduce them to competition and a club environment.

The LACPP has been developed through a partnership between the ASA, Sport England, LLDC, Better and the University of East London.
