Cracker 15 in the sack!

Cracker 15 is in the Santa Sack and if you wanted presents for Xmas this years Cracker didn’t fail to provide. It was a smooth, enjoyable, magical experience thanks to all of the amazing volunteers who provided the endless hours of effort that went into the event. Just shy of 700 athletes sprang into action on Friday and so many new levels were achieved. Surely there were a ton of club records being shattered in the 20 clubs attending.

All were PB's or just over in the Dive 100 and competed tough in the sets, leading lanes on long days... Oh, and asked lots of good (and some entertaining..) questions in the classroom sessions. Well done all. (Keir Ogilvie, Anthony Gutierrez, Artem Kuklev, Jacob Rambo, Sophie Lorette and Naeva Scott-Bouris). Thanks to the coaches who gave up their weekend as well to support the camp.
