M11 League - Thurrock
Braintree & Bocking swimming Club recently travelled to Thurrock for the first round of the M11 League. The league, for swimmers aged 9-12, is a fun fixture with a mixture of individual events and team relays. Coach Mike Woods was very impressed with the Braintree youngsters and said “All of the Braintree swimmers put in great performances against some really strong teams, and for some, this was their first taste of a league meet. Their encouragement and team spirit was excellent”.
