club’s young swimmers. Elite Athlete Funding grants were
given to Gracie Hudson, Poppy Baybutt, Izzy Ford and Charlie Toms.
Head coach, Noel Horton commented, “
not only are the four swimmers extremely talented athletes, capable
of reaching the very top in their sport, but they are also great
kids in training who work hard every day, and encourage their team
mates. They reflect so well on our club, their coaches and
swimming in the Aylesbury Vale
Maxwell Swim Club has further reason to thank AVCT for its support.
Maxwell is keen to help young athletes to be both great swimmers
and helpful, skilled and positive members of our community.
AVCT has awarded Maxwell a grant to run a Swim South East
England Accredited Poolside Helpers Course, for teenagers aged
13-15. The six month course will teach training techniques, first
aid, child safeguarding, and timekeeping. This will help both
the club and the local swimming community, and provide valuable
life skills for those involved.
Maxwell would like to thank AVCT for all their support.
