Tyla Danskin has been with Crusaders since the age of 8 is not only a swimmer but has progressed from supporting teachers pool side to now teaching younger swimmers at the weekend, as well as being on hand to encourage and support them in their first steps into competitive swimming galas.

In 2012 she helped organise the club Sports Relief “Go the Extra Mile” event which raised a fantastic £1,200.

And more recently has taken up the role as club Press Officer, keeping club members and the wider community informed of the clubs successes.

Tyla had been nominated by Competition Secretary Lesley Dunn many months before.

Lesley felt Tyla deserved recognition, saying: “She is well liked and well respected by all members of our club, committee, teachers, coaches and swimmers.

“This young lady is truly an inspiration.”
