I had the best time taking these kids from the Busselton Swimming Club for a junior swim clinic last weekend with @ryan_evernden! 🏊.
For those that don't know Busselton is a 2.5 hour drive south from Perth. Ryan is a country kid himself hailing from Bunbury a 30min drive from Busselton. I guess you could say I "found" Ryan when my squad from @perthcity_sc at the time did a regional clinic for Ryan's swimming club in Bunbury. We saw he had talent and a passion for the support and told him he had a future in the sport if he wanted it. Ryan moved up to Perth after he finished high school and trained with us at City of Perth. He went on to be one of the Club's real success stories making multiple Australian National Open Finals, becoming a Club Captain and finishing 6th in Australia in the 200m breaststroke most recently. What an inspirational story! 🙌.
Long story short, I love being part of junior clinics and especially regional clinics - they have a special place in my heart 😉

We had the awesome opportunity over the weekend to run a junior skills clinic for the Busselton Swimming Club with 2x Olympian, Asian & SEA Games champion @heidigan1
The clinic focused on "Race Skills" before WA Junior States and also had a Q&A at the end.
Best of luck to all the kids competing at junior states.
