Special Olympics Bahamas recently brought its 2014 local swim program to a close, after four months of training. Sessions were held at the Queen's College pool under the supervision of the Barracuda Swim Club. Executives and coaches of the Barracuda Swim Club remain unwavering in their commitment to assist the Special Olympics Bahamas swim program.
Special Olympics Bahamas swim coaches Jeanine Lee, Trevor Rolle and Keith McLean were all very proud of the progress of the athletes and are extremely excited about taking a team to Grand Bahama to participate in the Special Olympics Bahamas Grand Bahama Swim Championships.
Special Olympics Bahamas (an accredited program of Special Olympics Inc.) is a volunteer-driven, non-profit organization that provides year-round sports training and competition for adults and children with intellectual disabilities.
Next up on the competition calendar for the swim program is the 2015 Special Olympics World Summer Games (LA 2015), that will be held in Los Angeles, Calif., July 25 to August 3, 2015.
Persons interested in either volunteering their time or making a financial donation to Special Olympics Bahamas may contact the program's national director, Amanda Moncur, at 323-4669, 323-6000 or 477-0304.
