My name is Shivam and I am 6 years old. I am in the first grade. I have one big brother who also went to Charlotte Aquatics. My favorite things to do when I am not swimming are to play basketball and football, and to watch Power Rangers and play Legos. I have been swimming at Charlotte Aquatics since I was 18 months old! I love to swim, in the pool or at the beach, and my favorite stroke is the breaststroke – because I am so fast at it! My favorite part of Charlotte Aquatics is the teachers, especially Mr. Mike and Ms. Gigi – and the rope! The rope is so fun! Mr. Mike also does the funniest tricks, like when he tells us we have to swim 3 lengths, but holds up 4 fingers. I had a lot of fun at Charlotte Aquatics and I will miss everyone, but mostly Ms. Gigi and Mr. Mike.
Neelanjana started her swimming lessons at Charlotte Aquatics 4 years ago. Although she had to take a break, she was always happy to come back and keep learning! She loved her teachers the most and always looked forward to her swimming classes where the water was always warm and learning was fun!!
Her favorite memories of Charlotte Aquatics are of all her coaches, especially Mike; who was always so patient in his instruction with the more difficult strokes. He also always did something fun at the end and during the class. Her favorite stroke is breast stroke even though it was the hardest to learn. Doing the “crazy jump” in Mike’s class is one of her fondest memories
