Academy - Hayley Godley - HAC 1
Hayley has been working extremely hard on her skills and tries her best to implement anything I've told her to do when giving feedback. I'm really happy with the progress she has made! A great role model.
Junior (12/under) - Ayla Thiede - Skill Dev 3
Ayla’s confidence in training and competitions has improved so much in the last month. She has developed new skills like diving and turns very quickly since joining the squad and has become organised and consistent in all the sessions she attends. Well done!
Senior (13/over) - Kitty Leggett - County/Regional Youth - Petchey Award Winner
Kitty has one of the best attendance for C&R Youth and this is despite having a long-term injury. Training has been anything but a smooth ride for Kitty, yet she has a quiet steely determination to do well and keeps pushing through. Her confidence continues to grown in strength, which shows clearly in her skill set ,which is back to a very high level. Sadly one small mistake on the 50 BK at Counties had her narrowly missing out on making sub 34, but came back to practice with even more resolve. Well done for working through Kitty— your inner confidence is now rubbing off on everyone in the squad and you have become a great role model to many of our female athletes.
