ELST Weekly Challenge

Weekly Challenge: 24th - 31st May 2020 

This week’s challenge is a Strava challenge, but we do not want you to run the fastest or cycle the furthest distance. No, we want you to be creative and come up with your own ‘Strava art piece’. There are loads of examples online but, we want you to be imaginative and create a unique design, bonus points if you can incorporate ELST in some way. You will have from this Sunday (24th) until next Sunday (31st) to complete this challenge and submit your designs (along with your name) at the link below. The coaching team will then decide a winner from each squad and an overall winner for the team. 

Please remember to read Strava’s privacy guideline before getting started. We recommend that all members under the age of 15 should be accompanied by an adult and that the adult should be the user recording their session via Strava. 

Let us finish Scottish Swimming’s #FishOutOfWater challenge for Mental Health Awareness Week with some fun, good luck team!

Weekly Challenge: 26th April - 2nd May 2020 

This week’s Sunday Challenge is a little bit different – we are looking for submissions for the first-ever Great ELST Bake Off and instead of running just Sunday during the day submissions will be open from Sunday 26th of April to Sunday 3rd of May – you will have a whole week to create something worthy of being selected as winner – both squad and overall team.


Use the google form to submit your name, the name of your creation and some photos. The special guest judges including coaches, swimmers and committee members will decide what the best-looking creations are and who the winners are. If we get enough entries we could even consider a parents winner too.  

Good luck swimmers!
