More than 300 young swimmers from 35 clubs have already confirmed participation in the Philippine Swimming League (PSL) 62nd Series dubbed as the PSL-Magnolia Motivational Swimming Meet on July 26 at the Diliman Preparatory School swimming pool in Quezon City.
Defending champion Cavite Sailfish and runner-up Navy Fleet Marines will be leading the participants in the one-day meet which is open to all swimmers ages 5-under, 6 to 16 and 17-over for boys and girls.
“The PSL realized that swimming in the Philippines is so much behind. The PSL, after almost five years of active grassroots development program, has already produce swimmers who can break national junior records,” said PSL President Susan Papa.
Also seeing action are swimmers from University of the Philippines Integrated Schoo, Zambales, Paranaque, Pampanga, Quezon, Cavite, Bicol, Quezon City, Manila, Marikina and Baguio.
“It only means our international exposure on our young swimmers and monthly competitions works. The creation of motivational competition monthly for our new swimmers will change the trend of showing up only every summer but rather continue their developmental program the whole year round,” added Papa.
“Our newcomers swimmers we help them cross the bridge easier. PSL has work so hard in democratizing swimming many are no longer afraid of joining our organization after realizing that,” she ended.
