DAPSA League Round 3 (The Hamdan Final)
On Thursday 2nd May the DAPSA Swimming League Finals were hosted at the Hamdan Sports Complex. DESS selected 33 of the fastest Swim Squad Members who represented DESS in this event.
This year was the largest Swimming League Finals yet, with a total of 30 schools competing for a place in the Top 3 Divisions. DESS competed against the top 5 Dubai schools to secure a spot in Division 1, namely: Jebel Ali School; Kings School Dubai; JESS Arabian Ranches; Nord Anglia School and Jumeirah Primary School.
After a long day at the Hamdan Sports Complex, DESS finished 5th, out of 46 schools forming part of the DAPSA Swimming League, and secured a spot in Division 1 for the next academic year.
A special mention must go to the Year 4 Team, both boys and girls, who placed first within their Year Group for the DASPA Swimming League. This officially classes them as the fastest Year 4 swimmers in Dubai.
It is a fantastic opportunity to be selected for this event and take part in the best facility in the UAE. Each and every one of the swimmers plays an important role in the DESS Team and they can be very proud of their achievements!
Very big congratulations to all the swimmers that took part in this event and well done for the many personal best times that were achieved, as well as records that were broken during the event.
