On Thursday, July 27th the “First Annual Neo Swim 2017 “event was held highlighting the aquatic skills of some of Orlando's finest youth.
The event was coordinated by Frontline Outreach Sports Center and Denise Moore, Pool Supervisor from the City of Orlando, at Frontline Outreach Youth and Family Center in Orlando, Florida. There was nearly 100 youth, parents, and District 6 Commissioner, Samuel B. Ings in attendance to witness the exhibition meet. Commissioner Ings supported this endeavor by donating funds to assist the youth with swim apparel and incentives throughout their training.
The swimmers were given the opportunity to compete while displaying various swim strokes and demonstrate water safety methods taught by the City of Orlando Families, Parks & Recreation Aquatics, and Swimming for Life Inc., a community partner of Frontline Outreach Inc.
As swimmers stood eagerly on their marks, they were submerged in cheers of encouragement from their peers, parents, and coaches. The spectators watched in awe while swimmers cut through the water like butter, demonstrating the results of all their hard work.
Finally, Frontline Outreach Athletics informed those in attendance, that there will be continued efforts to hold events for the community by hosting a Saturday Splash Fest that will focus on water safety, and fun in the sun.
