The “Aquasprint Junior Swimming League,” sponsored by Forest Feast, is an integral part of Swim Ulster’s initiative. This league focuses on promoting swimming at the grassroots level, encouraging young people aged 8 to 12 to engage in competitive sports and lead active, healthy lifestyles. With participation from 26 clubs and 1600 young swimmers, the league operates in five divisions, culminating in finals in June. The sponsorship aligns with Forest Feast’s commitment to fostering fitness and healthy eating among families. Notable athletes like Emma Reid and Conor Ferguson, who started their swimming careers in Aquasprint, have since achieved success in international competitions like the Commonwealth Games, highlighting the league’s role in nurturing young talent.
