Swimmer of the Month - September 2018
Well done to our September 2018 Swimmer of the Month winners. The SOTM is awarded to swimmers who work hard, show great performance in training and competition, have a good attendance record, demonstrate great team spirit, and are respectful and well-mannered to each other and their coaches.
Performance Youth Squad – Jude Costley
Jude has started the season with real drive and purpose. He is training incredibly hard and has a 100% attendance record (8 sessions per week). This hard work paid off with superb results at the City of Cambridge Grand Prix with 2 new short course national times. On top of this, Jude has also been helping our younger swimmers and give his night off to volunteer as part of the Young Volunteer Programme
Competition Youth – Jago Corner (and Petchey Award Winner)
Jago has shown improvements across the board, his commitment to training, efforts in training, personal goals and taking ownership over his sport for example in organising his travel arrangements for training.
Age Squads – Ava Young
Ava has managed to really stand out from a group of swimmers who are all doing well. She's had a fantastic start to the season, showing outstanding commitment through her attendance, which is one of the highest in the club (94%), work ethic and how she applied herself in sessions. Based on this she has also been moved into the performance group. Well done Ava!
Competition Dev – Marie Girardet
Marie has made an excellent start to the season. Attending most sessions with a purpose, showing great leadership qualities and always trying to go above and beyond in what is expected of the group so much so that she will be moving up soon as a result of her success. Marie has recently been rewarded with a move to the Competition Age Group Squad.
Skill Dev – David Kimaro (Skill Dev 2)
David has made a continual development over the last month. He is becoming one of the leaders in the group. Always wanting to demonstrate. Always wanting to answer questions. This show in the amount of improvements he has made in his stroke technique this month.
Club Squads – Evelyn Pakule (Junior Gold)
Evelyn has shown an amazing work ethic and is always ready to get in the pool first. She also asks a range of questions to insure that she knows what she is doing as well as being keen to demonstrate drill that others haven't done.
Academy - Nancy Angliss (Academy 2)
Nancy has been chosen for her attendance, eagerness to learn, and for being the most improved swimmer since the start of the season.
Well done to all our winners
