Will you bring the trophy home this year?

To prepare new students for the Midmar Mile challenge, the swimming trainings will be held every year.

Dedicated training sessions are organized by the school for all these events.  Athletes wanting to compete in some of the events but not for the trophy are all welcome to join the training sessions for their specific sport.

As all these competitions are very popular in the South African racing calendar, registration needs to be done timeously.

The Lycee will cover the registration fees for the different events, as well as the transport and lodging costs for the Midmar event.
