Ellie takes to water
Six-year-old Ellie Brown is one of the youngest swimmers to complete the Xcite Learn 2 Swim programme.
Ellie from Whitburn, celebrated her sixth birthday on July 3 and successfully completed the Xcite Learn 2 Swim programme later that month.
She began swimming at Xcite Whitburn when her mum, Karen, and dad, Jack, took her along to Adult & Baby classes.
Progressing through the levels, with the Swim Team at Xcite Whitburn, Ellie reached Level Seven and moved to Swim Skill Four when the framework was recently updated and has now progressed to join Trojan Swimming Club.
Proud dad Jack said: “Ellie loves swimming and also attended Diving classes at Xcite Whitburn.
“Reaching this at her age is a real credit to the Swim Teachers at Xcite Whitburn.
“I feel the Xcite Programme is first class in teaching children the important life skills that swimming brings.”
Ellie’s swim Teacher, Alan Long, added:‘It has been a real pleasure teaching Ellie over the last few years and being able to watch her developing into a great little swimmer. Well done Ellie.”
