An eventful weekend awaits Luxembourg's Swimming Federation (FLNS), with the association's Ordinary General Assembly, the Belgian Short Course Championships in Ghent and the Trophée de l’Avenir in Redange on the agenda.

On Saturday 9 November 2019, the FLNS will hold its Ordinary General Assembly, bringing together its sixteen member associations, in Differdange, while its junior swimmers get ready to compete at national and international stadiums.

An eight-person junior selection will start at the Belgian Short Course Championships in Ghent on 9 and 10 November. Then, on Sunday, the best young swimmers will be competing in the Trophée de l'Avenir competition in Redange.

After a ten-day training camp in Sabadell, the Belgian Championships are the first international form test ahead of the national championships (16-17 November) in the Aquasud in Differdange and qualifying for the European Short Course Championships (4-8 December) in Glasgow. A total of 624 athletes from 89 clubs will be participating in 2,080 individual and 109 relay starts.

Meanwhile, at the Trophée de l'Avenir in Redange, Luxembourg's most hopeful young swimmers (aged 8-12) will compete against each other in seven squadrons and two individual races. 150 athletes from eight Luxembourg clubs will take part in 147 individual and 92 relay starts. The event will begin on Sunday at 14:00 in the swimming pool of Lycée Atert in Redange. Admission is free.
