THE Kerry Recreation and Sports Partnership witnessed another successful year of the ‘Swim For All’ programme.

This programme designed specifically for children with disabilities and is run in conjunction with the three local leisure centres – Ballybunion Health & Leisure Centre, Killarney Sports & Leisure Centre and Tralee Regional Sports & Leisure Centre.

During 2019, the Swim For All programme supported and encouraged 78 children, ranging from 4 to 15 years, and with different levels and range of abilities.

To celebrate the end of the successful year and to acknowledge and reward the children for all their hard work, an awards ceremony was held in Killarney Sports & Leisure Centre.

The children were presented with certificates and medals by the leisure centre staff followed by some treats and tea and coffee for the parents.

“Today is all about the children and to reward them for their hard work throughout the year on the Swim for All programme. It is great to see so many children throughout Kerry benefiting from this programme in so many ways and it is a joy to witness their progression in swimming.  This programme is only made possible through the positive collaborative work established between the leisure centres and Kerry Recreation & Sports Partnership,” said Sinead Egan, Programme Facilitator with Kerry Recreation and Sports Partnership.

A new programme will commence during 2019 Q1.  For more information please contact Sineád Egan at swimforallkerry@gmail.com or alternatively KRSP at 066-7184776.
