Ripley Leisure Centre's swimmer of the year 2021
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.
Tobias Mills - Ripley Leisure Centre Swimmer of the year 2021
Nominated by his teacher Samantha
'Tobias is always determined to improve his strokes and helps other swimmers stay motivated through encouraging them to carry on.'
