Monday, November 21 2011TWO LOCAL swim clubs have decided to merge under one entity entitled the “Titans Swim Club — Faster, Stronger, Together”.
These clubs joining forces are Macoya-based Seahawks and Tsunami from San Fernando.
The official launch of the new club will be done at Club Fusion at Cascadia Hotel in St Ann’s on December 10 at 3.15pm.
Titans Swim Club was formed in an effort to share resources and skills between the two pre-existing clubs in order to form a powerful unit of not only swimmers, but of minds and ideas that would propel the establishment to development.
This would be the first club in Trinidad and Tobago to have branches in North and South. They will also have 25 members on the national swimming team, more than any other club in the country.
The club has over 60 other members who are also training hard to elevate themselves in the competitive ranks. Titans’ swimmers currently range from age seven and up.
While Titans SC will be the brand of the new club, Sea Hawks and Tsunami will continue to exist as active feeder programmes for the new competitive arm.
Swimmers will continue to train under the feeder programmes, but represent the Titans brand on the national stage.
The feeder programmes are intended to continue developing athletes from learning to swim, to competitive competition, with the utmost objective of creating world class athletes.
Titans SC will be spearheaded by the Amateur Swimming Association of Trinidad and Tobago (ASATT) Public Relations Officer, Jason Wickham (president).
The club’s board of directors are Wendell Lai Hing (vice-president), Glenda Vidalis-Caesar (secretary), Roxanne Marcano (assistant secretary), Rachel Thomasos-Jackson (treasurer), Fabian De France (assistant treasurer) and Edmund Ramtahal and Randy Richards (lay members).
Titans’ coaching staff includes Vincent Tardieu, Brian Wick-
ham, Terry-Ann Evelyn and Michael Jules.
