Amelie Byrne

Great effort for Amelie who has earned swimmer of the week! Amelie has only been in crabs for a month and is already catching on quickly to her side kick which she can do added and starting to be able to do unaided. Her kicking in both her streamline and freestyle is super strong, which is helping with her big arms and the start of learning to breath every three strokes.

Awesome work Amelie!!

Isabella has earned swimmer of the week due to her always showing up ready and excited for her lessons. This has meant that her breaststroke has been improving significantly and is starting to get the strength in her kick and arms. Isabella can easily do two lengths of both freestyle and backstroke and has started to really get a hold of her turns.

Archie Oliver

Congratulations to Archie who is our swimmer of the week this week!

Archie has been gaining confidence over that last couple of weeks and is now putting his big balloon face in the water every time he is asked. He always comes to swimming with a massive smile on his face and is starting to float and kick with only the boards as assistance. As a rugrat Archie has a really strong kick and is capable not of kicking and having his face in.

Great Job Archie!!!

Liam is new to explorers but is already smashing it !

His confidence has increased rapidly doing the new skills required like floating on his own and freestyle arms and legs but the best thing for Liam is his kicking which has become really strong with beautiful straight legs making it a lot easier for him to speed through the water! This paired with awesome listening ears makes for a winning combination !

Keep up the good swimming Liam !

Leon Robinson

Leon has been working super hard this year on his swimming and it\'s really showing - not only he is making good progress with his kicking and freestyle but now he can now float just about all by himself.

But the thing that sets Leon apart and earnt him swimmer of the week is that he is always asking for tips on what will help him to be able to do it all by himself with no help from Brooke at all.
And that his confidence has grown astronomically from when he first started - so now he is always volunteering to go first regardless of what the exercise is he just wants to keep going !



Brilliant effort and brilliant attitude !
