Club member and senior swimmer Faith Kimberley, 16, has represented the County at a national sport camp in Loughborough as an official. Faith got through a selection process as one of just ten young ASA officials from across the country to take part in the Youth Sport Trust National Talent Camp (NTC). The unique residential experience brought together 350 of the most talented young athletes, coaches and officials across England. All candidates were selected based on their sporting/coaching or officiating achievements and a demonstration of their commitment to personal development.
During the four-day camp, Faith and her fellow young officials joined in the multi-sport, multi-role, three-dimensional camp which aimed to increase individual aspiration and ambition. Participants were stretched and challenged to aim high and achieve their sporting best. The camp was funded by Sport England and presented by Loughborough University, working with seven National Governing Bodies of Sport, including the ASA.
While on the course, Faith took part in busy days beginning with circuit training at 6.45am in the morning and with activities continuing until the late evening. They were given presentations by motivational speakers as well as preparing for a busy year ahead. Faith is now in the midst of a 12-month development programme where she can expect to be challenged and meet some unique opportunities within the aquatic sporting arena.
