Dover Leisure Centre's Swimmer of the year
After a challenging 2021 we wanted to round the year off with some good news stories. We asked all of our Swimming Teachers to nominate those distinctive, very special swimmers who deserved a bit of recognition.
They were asked to identify swimmers on our lesson programmes (children and adults) who have displayed positive attitudes, unyielding determination or, have put in efforts over and above their peers. They may have overcome personal adversity or achieved something unexpected or challenging.
Jake Pile - Dover District Leisure Centre's Swimmer of the Year 2021
Nominated by his teacher Hayley Thomas
"Jake has come on so well from being a non confident swimmer and not being able to put his head in the water, to now a confident swimmer who has come on leaps and bounds. Shows that if you put your mind to something, you can achieve anything.
Well done Jake!"
