Wath Upon Dearne'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.
Max Trott - Wath Upon Dearne's swimmer of the year 2021
Nominated by his teacher Paul Bennett
'Max has been in lessons since 2017.
Since coming back to lessons in Stage 2 after lockdown he would only sit on the side and no matter what I did I couldn't get him to swim.
After determination from his parents by persevering bringing him each week my encouragements eventually worked and Max sailed through the levels to Stage 4 where he is now.'
