Albatross Christmas Gala & Club Championships 2017

The last ever Albatross Christmas Gala to be held at Central Pool!  A full choreographed diving display by coach Sheila Kirrane started the event in traditional style.  Our youngest Albatross divers from Learn to Dive came together with Albatross National champions alongside all competitive squad divers to create a memorable spectacle.  A fitting end to forty years at Central Pool.

The gala includes our annual club championships involving events for Learn to Dive and all our competitive squads.  Photos and highlights for all events are listed here.

During the interval the divers were surprised by some guest divers who had secretly entered the parents event.  Well done to Kelly Cook, Jeanette Jones and Emma West who all took a leap of faith off the 5m board!  A huge well done and thank-you to all our other parent and coach competitors.  You were all brilliant
