My name is Aleena and I am 7 years old. When I am not swimming I do Taekwando, play with my plush toys, and play with my older brother. He also graduated from Charlotte Aquatics! My best swimming memory is when I passed level 6. I did not know that I was going to graduate that day. It was a surprise. My dad got me a balloon and I love the trophy Mr. Mike gave me. My favorite swim strokes are Freestyle and Butterfly. I love swimming and I feel more comfortable in the water. I like the staff and my instructors, especially Mr. Mike. My favorite memory of Charlotte Aquatics is when Mr. Mike gave me my trophy.
Parent Note: We are so proud of Aleena. Thank you to all the staff and instructors at Charlotte Aquatics for teaching our kids the important life-long skill of swimming. We have been with you for over 8 years and it has been a wonderful experience. We look forward to enrolling both kids in the Elite Fish program over the Summer.
