The club was treated to a training day courtesy of the Tesco Bags for Help scheme.

Earlier in the year Skegness Swim Team won the most tokens in the scheme and were awarded £4,000 from the supermarket, choosing to spend some of the money on an in-house skills training day led by the Gold Coast 2018 400m individual medley winner.

Aimee and her Father Stuart, himself a swim coach, travelled down from the North East before Aimee set off for altitude training in Arizona, USA.

The day consisted of swim skills in all strokes, a talk on nutrition and body image, further training in the water and meet and greets.

The swimmers had a fantastic day and the poolside team enjoyed listening and learning.
