Rushmoor Regional Beacon Programme 2015 - 2nd year

There are only 4 BEACON synchronised swimming Clubs in England: Bristol, Leeds, Reading and Rushmoor.

Through this programme swimmers will have access to extended training sessions delivering a syllabus in line with the England Talent Development Squad, including the same testing, protocols and technical work, under the direction of the Regional Beacon Coach. The programme will also involve an education programme including land training and athlete support services.

As part of Beacon, the Club has to run a regional programme once a month from January through to June - our region is Surrey, Kent, Hampshire and London. The focus of the regional programme will be to select 10-12 athletes per Beacon, that either didn’t quite make it onto an England Squad trial or the next best athletes born in 2002, 2003 and 2004. The country has been split into 4 sections and the clubs/athletes divided up appropriately.

We have 6 RUSHMOOR GIRLS on this programme:

  • Risa Darcy
  • Zayna Gallacher
  • Abi Garner
  • Karen Hibberd
  • Maggie Horos
  • Charlie Trigg

Coaches: Helen Morris - Portsmouth Victoria, Leonie Kearn - Rushmoor, and Louise Ross overseeing everything.
