Send Kate to World Champs

Personal message

Kate has been doing synchronized swimming (now known as ‘artistic swimming’) from the age of nine. Since then, this pastime has grown into a passion, and for the past six years she has been competing at local and national level for her club and school, earning many medals along the way as well as learning important lessons about commitment, discipline and team spirit. Kate’s natural talent was recognized at an early age, but since then it has been her love of synchro and the many hours of hard work and training in the pool that have contributed to her success in the sport.

Earlier this year, Kate was selected as a member of the youth team representing South Africa at the Artistic Swimming World Championships taking place from the 28th of August until the 1st of September in Slovakia. This is an amazing achievement, but also one that comes with a substantial commitment, both personal and financial … taking time off school, attending training camps in Cape Town, special kit and equipment, additional coaching fees and specialized training, passport and visas. Swimming South Africa has estimated the cost of the tour to be in the region of R40,000.00. This is over and above the four training camps in Cape Town, which are costing approximately R2,000.00 each.  

Funds raised by this campaign will be used to cover Flights, Accommodation and Registration costs.

Please support our campaign so that Kate can achieve her lifelong goal of representing her country at the highest level!
