Congratulations Alice!

Tewkesbury 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. 

Alice Ellyatt-Coole - Tewkesbury Leisure Centre's Swimmer of the Year 2021
Nominated by her teacher Gemma Cotton

"Alice is a fantastic little swimmer, listens really well every lesson, always thanks me (unprompted) at the end of every lesson & is already able to do tasks way beyond her years (she is only 3 & a half) her favourite task is swimming underwater to collect dive sticks & prone star float to mushroom float rotate onto her back star float! WOW.

So very much deserved, the team at TLC are so proud of her.  Well Done Alice!"
