Congratulations Stanley!

Steyning 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. 

Stanley Elphick - Steyning Leisure Centre's Swimmer of the Year 2021
Nominated by his teacher Laura Woodroffe

"Stanley has a fantastically positive attitude to learning. He turns up to every lesson full of energy and is always ready to swim with a smile on his face.

He works extremely hard in every lesson and has a strong ability and passion for the sport which translates in the pool.

Stanley is an absolute joy to teach, he never gives up and is super focused. A future GB Olympian in the making, I'm sure of it! "

Well done, Stanley!
