My name is Zoie and I am 9 years old. I am in 4th grade. When I am not swimming, I love to read, sing, ride my bike and hang out with my little sister Bella. Our favorite things are playing with our L.O.L. Surprise dolls and iPads. I also love spending time with my best friend Chloe at the park or face timing with her.
Swimming allows me to stay activate and have fun. My best swimming memory is when I finally learned how to do my backstroke and not get water in my nose which can really hurt. I have saved all my patches and certificates in a bin which I plan to finally display in my room along with my trophy from passing the level 6 swim class. My favorite stroke is the breaststroke because I love the way I glide in the water. Swimming has changed my life because it made me more confident about being around and getting in the water. It makes me and my parents happing knowing I can swim and be safe, thanks to Charlotte Aquatics. What I love most about Charlotte Aquatics are all the wonderful and talented swim teachers who helped me to get to this final level 6. My favorite memory of Charlotte Aquatics is when I was practicing my breaststroke arms. I had to sit on a noddle in the water in a relay race. The noodle caused me to flip over and fall in the water. I kept falling off but I finally got the hang of it and made it to the end of the pool.
PARENT NOTE: I was so grateful and blessed to have found Charlotte Aquatics back on February 9th, 2016 when Zoie was 4 ½ years old and we immediately started her first swim lesson. She was so nervous but in no time she was relaxed and enjoying splashing around with her new friends.
I just wanted to take the time to thank the entire past and present Charlotte Aquatics staff members who helped Zoie accomplish the goal of passing all swim levels, especially level 6! I witnessed all the hard work they put into teaching and encouraging her to reach her full potential. There were happy times and a few tears but they never gave up on her. The staff was so generous with their words of advice and video clips to help Zoie perfect her butterfly stroke and pass level 6.
Charlotte Aquatics is not only a place to go to learn the skills to swim in a fun and safe environment. It’s a place where wonderful memories are made and a family bond is created through the many years with staff and other parents. Thank you for the 5 years of dedication. Zoie would not be where she is without you all. We cannot wait to start Elite Fish classes. Applause and much love to you all.
