Leiston 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.
Ariel Large - Leiston Leisure Centre's Swimmer of the Year 2021
Nominated by her teacher Adrian Hazelwood
"Ariel is very modest, well disciplined and open to improvement in her stroke technique. She freely helps others and is considerate when swimming with lesser ability learners.
Ariel takes on every challenge with an inquisitive mind and willingness to achieve the lesson objectiveness without becoming a 'water robot'. An inspiring young lady who is a pleasure to teach."
