Loddon Valley 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.
Aiden Smith - Loddon Valley Leisure Centre's Swimmer of the Year 2021
Nominated by his teacher Diane Van Niekerk
"Aiden has been swimming with us since stage 1 and has progressed really throughout the years. He is staying on in my stamina group and has taken on a second lesson doing rookie lifeguarding, as he hopes to become a Lifeguard one day!
Well done Aiden!"
