The new year started with a splash for some elite young swimmers.

The Vancouver Island annual region 10 and under training camp took place Saturday at the Cowichan Aquatic Centre.

Among those selected were four members of the Duncan Stingrays: 10-year-olds Jessica Castle, Malia Prystupa and Kealey Scott and nine-year-old Olin Dahlstrom.

There were two pool sessions during the day.

The first included the importance of streamlining and individual medley stroke progression.

The second session included a pair of tests. One was a timed 200-metre kick and the other was a timed flip turn and streamline to 10 metres.

The productive day wrapped up with prize presentations.
