Successful young swimmers who have been tutored through the local charity SCILL received their swimming certificates recently.

Lucy was awarded Water Skills 2 and 20m Distance Badge, Stephen got a Certificate of Achievement and Jenny received 20m Distance badge and Water Skills Certificate. 

Ann Law, Joint Chair of SCILL and tutor said: “It is especially important for children with additional support needs to have their successes celebrated. I am delighted that SCILL is able to offer swimming support to some of the children who might not otherwise have the opportunity to succeed. SCILL swimming has had a very successful year. The young swimmers have worked very hard and progressed well. All the SCILL swimming teachers have been amazed at the level of progression the children have achieved not only in their water skills, which have exceeded expectation, but also in the distances they can swim and their individual stamina.”

SCILL would like to offer tuition to more young people but needs more qualified tutors to come forward to do this.  If anyone is interested, contact scill-deeside@tiscali.co.uk or call 07913 326816.
