Expected at the meet are two clubs from Grenada.

The competition will be held at the recently refurbished Shrewsbury Pool Facility in Ratho Mill.

The event will consist of a series of races in the four styles (Breast Stroke, Back Stroke, Butterfly, and Free Style), as well as combined races and relays.

Each swim club consists of young swimmers between the ages of 6 and 17 years, and swimmers will be grouped according to age.

There will also be Master’s races, which will include experienced swimmers over the age of 25 years.

“Swimming continues to be a growing sport of interest and through continued partnerships, we would be able to ensure that this discipline is a positive outlet of energy for our young people, as well as an excellent source of exercise and recreation for adults,” said Andre Cadogan, the President of the SVGASA.

“We would like to thank Vitamalt for their generous contribution towards this event as we strive to successfully host St. Vincent and the Grenadines’ first-ever invitational swim meet.”

“Vitamalt is committed to the development of sports in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. The core values of the brand are to promote energy, vitality, wellness and a healthy lifestyle,” Dominic Brisbane, Vitamalt Brand Manager at the St. Vincent Brewery Ltd said.

“We would like to thank the SVGASA for granting us the opportunity to sponsor this event as it is a perfect fit for our brand. It will allow us to meet our target group of highly energetic youngsters to whom Vitamalt is committed. We hope that Vincentians would come out to this first ever swim meet to support our young local talent as we endeavor to build this sport in St. Vincent and the Grenadines,” he continued.
