Dorset’s most successful swimming squad has secured a sponsorship deal before this summer’s national championships.
Wild Recruitment has got behind Bournemouth Collegiate School’s (BCS) swimming academy that will have 13 members at the finals.
The squad is off next month to Majorca for a week’s training camp – and will also be wearing kit with the Wild Recruitment logo and carrying branded rucksacks.
There are just 32 members of the school’s squad, making the number selected for the ASA National Summer Championships and British Summer Championships even more impressive.
One of the school’s coaches is Zoe Baker, a four times world record holder in the 50m breast stroke, European gold medallist, three times World bronze medal winner, Commonwealth gold medal winner – and BBC’s Superstars champion.
Richard Harrison-Poole, BCS’s Director of Sport, said: “We have 32 swimmers in our top squad, 22 in our performance squad and 13 going to the national championships.
“It is an achievement we are incredibly proud of and it’s down to the hard work of the swimmers and our talented coaching team, including Zoe Baker, Adam Parfitt and Tony Watson.
“The swimming section is a huge part of the school’s sports academy, a programme in which pupils can combine their studies with high level coaching from professionals.
“We give our sportsmen and women a personal timetable so they can receive coaching and an excellent education in school hours, allowing time for a life outside of school.”
Wild's Managing Director Michelle Stewart said: “The swimmers at BCS are a hugely successful group and we are proud to sponsor and be associated with them.
“They have achieved a great deal already at a county and regional level and we wish them all the best at the national championships this summer.
GOOD LUCK TEAM BCS!
