As part of the effort to contribute to the development of Swimming in St. Lucia, Capri-Sun, through their agents Massy Stores, presented to the Sea Jays Swim Club its sponsorship cheque of $10,000 on October 7th 2016. Capri-Sun has through the years been the title sponsor of the Swim Trials hosted by Sea Jays Swim Club. It is geared towards the National Team Selection for the OECS Swim Championship.
Club President Eldris Mauricette expressed “As the preparation for the hosting of this meet is well on its way to what we expect to be a highly competitive and exciting one, I would like to thank Capri-Sun Managing Team for their continued support. Without them our efforts in hosting the meet would be a difficult one! The Sea Jays Swim Club continues to embrace the collaboration between our club and Capri-Sun and look forward to a successful Meet this weekend”
Speaking on Capri-Sun’s long standing sponsorship of the event, Marketing Manager of Massy Stores Ms Sancha Raggie had this to say, ‘As a brand Capri-Sun looks to support activities that promote youth development through sports and active lifestyles in kids, this activity does just that. We are proud to support an activity with national significance.’
The action is scheduled to commence this coming Friday October 21st through to October 23rd 2016. Supporters can expect to see over 140 competitors swim at their highest level with the hope to earn their way to qualify for the OECS National Swim Championship to be held in St. Vincent November 10th to the 13th.
The Rodney Heights Aquatic Center will be the home of the swim trials.
Immediately after the conclusion of the Capri Sun meet, the Technical Committee of SLASA will convene to select the OECS team.
