Head Coach & A Couple Of Our Swimmers @mfswimming

29 May, 2014

Its the school holidays, and there are plenty of things to do, but Hannah and Archie from the Marlins decided to take a trip to the Mark Foster swim camp. Needless to say, a good time was had by all, and as you can see from the photo’s below – our head coach looks a little star struck sandwiched between Mark Foster and Katy Sexton :)

You can check out the Mark Foster Swimming Academy website for details of his swim camps.
