My name is Maxton. I am 6 years old and a first grader. I started swimming at Charlotte Aquatics when I was three years old. I spent my first level with Mr. Grant but after that it was all with Mrs. Gigi. When I am not swimming, I like to play baseball, build Legos, and shoot my Nerf guns. My favorite stroke is the breaststroke because I worked so hard on it. What I liked most about Charlotte Aquatics was Mrs. Gigi because she was the nicest teacher ever. Learning to swim has changed my life because now my parents will let me play in the deep end of the pool. I am so excited that I am graduating but will miss seeing Mrs. Gigi. Thank you Charlotte Aquatics for teaching me how to swim.
Parent Note: The Norris family has been a part of the Charlotte Aquatics family for the past 6 years. We started this journey with our daughter and now are finishing it with our son. Both of our children are level six graduates and we couldn’t be more proud. Maxton has worked so hard to earn his trophy. He started out as a nervous child in the water but now is a very confident swimmer. A very special thank you goes out to Mrs. Gigi. We can’t thank Mrs. Gigi enough for helping Maxton gain his confidence in the water and teaching him how to swim. Maxton thinks the world of Mrs. Gigi and so does the rest of the Norris family. Thank you Charlotte Aquatics!!
