Congratulations Darci!

Leiston Leisure Centre's Swimmer of the year

We wanted to round 2022 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. 

Darci Boon - Leiston Leisure Centre's Swimmer of the Year 2022
Nominated by her teacher Marie Bell

Darci is always super, super keen and her confidence has grown so much. She always listens and try's her hardest all the time. Darci is only 6 years old and is already in Stage 5. She is so advanced and really enjoys her lessons.

She was slightly nervous moving up to Stage 5 as it was a different teacher but she overcome her worries as she was so happy to be a Light Blue Hat. Darci rarely misses a class and when she walks on to pool side she has a massive smile on her face.

Darci should be so proud of herself like me and the other teachers are!
