The country’s young promising swimmers will be competing in the 166th Philippine Swimming League (PSL) Swimming Championships Class AB and C Category slated on November 23 to 24 at the Diliman Preparatory School swimming pool in Quezon City.
The tournament serves as tryout to select swimmers who will represent the country in international competitions in Singapore, Japan and United Arab Emirates.
“Through this competition, we will be able to select swimmers for our international competitions next year. We are exposing swimmers not only in our monthly competition but also in international level. We want these kids to experience competing against their foreign counterparts to further hone their skills,” said PSL President Alexandre Papa.
The event is open to swimmers in the Motivational and Novice divisions.
“PSL is giving chance too to new swimmers to shine. We want to build their confidence and elevate to the next level. We want to develop their talent and expose them for future international competitions,” added Papa.
Medals and trophies will be given to the top finishers in the 6-under, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15-over age bands for boys and girls.
Participants from Cebu, Iloilo, Bacolod, Capiz, National Capital Region, Cavite, Davao, Baguio, Laguna, Pampanga, Quezon and Mindoro are expected to show up in the tournament supported by The Manila Times.
“This competition is open to all. We are not requiring a membership just to be part of the team for our international competitions. As long as you meet the standards and you are willing to represent our country, you are in,” Papa stressed
