Penny is our swimmer of the week for this week because she has been trying so hard to do her small fast kicking legs when she is rolling to breath while doing her freestyle and roll outs, no longer doing big scissor kicks ! She has also increased her kicking on her back, and is zooming through the water ! She has also been working on getting her breathing position much better, which she has got ! Shes keeping her body nice and long while on her side. She brings her bubbly energy to swimming every week and always puts a smile on our face !

This week Ellie has been chosen as our swimmer of the week as she has improved massively with her motivation and skills for swimming ! She is keen for every lesson and has fun while doing it. We have now been managing to swim the full length of the pool with no standing up for a breather which was a big goal of hers ! We are now slowly working towards building up the endurance to do two lengths of swimming for her freestyle and backstroke. She has worked very hard to keep her arm up while she is breathing and now does this so well without fail !
Ellie is such a pleasure to teach and we always look forward to seeing her at lessons !

This weeks swimmer of the week is Olivia, she’s been working so hard in Incredibles! Her freestyle arms are looking super, her backstroke is nice and strong and she is holding her head in the right position. Olivia’s been trying so hard with her tumble turns, swimming into them and then pushing out while blowing bubbles out of her nose and all without putting her feet down. Olivia’s main focus has been her breaststroke, it took lots of focus but then it all went click and is making a lot more sense now! Her speed is amazing also! She's been doing so amazing she also just moved to Supers!

Mai Sylver

Our swimmer of the week for this week is Mai. She has received this as she comes to lessons weekly and has shown so much improvement since she started with us earlier this year, even received her ribbon for Crabs to move to Stingers !! She is always focused during the lesson and tries her very best with anything she is asked to do, even if she finds it a bit tricky ! When she first moved to Crabs, she was finding kicking on her back quite challenging, however we have now mastered this and she is able to do so with ease ! She is now capable of doing her rotations now that she can kick on her back. She also has the most perfect circle arms (freestyle arms) you could ask for ! We are now practicing her 3 freestyle arms before rolling for a breath, and she won't be far from mastering this skill either !


Amazing job Mai ! You are a pleasure to teach
