Our boys earned themselves a BOYS DAY after topping the table of the male scores at the Tornadoes Swim Meet 2019.
Our executive, VP Roger Roomes and parent Rickardo Gayle planned a day of football at Football Factory on Saturday June 8, 2019.
A number of fathers joined in for the day to support our boys at this event. Present were Captain Luke Mair, coaches, fathers of all our swimmers. And football was the centre of activities and the match of the day was Swimmers vs Fathers and what a match it was. Fathers won and a rematch is planned soon.
A great day of bonding, food and drinks was had by all. A great pre -Father's Day activity
Congrats boys and thank you fathers for being there.

On a night when Jamaica tallied 18 medals in the pool, which included six gold, nine silver and three bronze, it was Zaneta Alvaranga who stole the show with individual and relay gold medals. The individual gold was secured in record fashion at the 34th staging of the Carifta Swimming Championships in Barbados.
The 13-year-old was in sizzling form as she swam to a championship record of 27.84s in the 50m Butterfly for 13-14 girls. It was the fastest time swam in the event in any age group on the night and the second-fastest in the history of the Carifta Championships. Her teammate Sabrina Lyn took the silver in a time of 29.13.
