AVCT Support Maxwell Swimmers

Maxwell receive AVCT grant support for Swimming in the Vale

Competitive swimming has many rewards and provides fantastic opportunities but does require great determination and commitment to succeed. The athlete receives early morning and late evening coaching plus their mums and dads, drive to training very early, volunteer to run the clubs and, of course, support the costs.

This dedication, determination and outstanding performance of the swimmers, parents & volunteers of Maxwell Swim Club Ltd has been recognised by Aylesbury Vale Community Trust (AVCT) .   

The trust, established in the Vale to support local causes, has awarded grants to support training and development to four of the 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.
