They’ll make a splash in Aruba

The Cayman Islands Amateur Swimming Association’s squad of young athletes that will represent the Cayman Islands in the CARIFTA 2009 Swim Championships have done most of their hard work and are tapering down for the tournament next week in Aruba.

It’s from April 17-19. The youngsters were selected based on having achieved challenging time standards in their particular events, as well as having met rigorous training standards set by the national coach, Dominic Ross.

The major corporate sponsors were: Caledonian Group, Cayman National Corporation, Chandler Insurance Management Ltd, Five Continents Financial Ltd, Green Light Reinsurance Ltd.

They travel to Aruba next Tuesday and will compete at the Piscina Olimpico ‘Roly Bisslik’ pool in Savaneta.
