Sylvan Lake Nauticals Elle Couture is Athlete of the Month



The Alberta Sport Development Centre – Central (ASDC-C) is pleased to announce the ASDC-Central Female Athlete of the Month for January 2018 is Elle Couture.

Elle Couture is a 13 year Red Deer resident and competitive Swimmer with the Sylvan Lake Nauticals Swim Club, and an Honor Student at St. Thomas Aquinas Middle School in Red Deer.

Elle started swimming as a child through the Red Cross Swim Kids Program in Red Deer and soon realized that she loved the water.  At age 9 she started competitive swimming locally and in the fall of 2016 joined the Nauticals coached by Trevor Burns.

Elle has had a great start to the 2017 – 2018 swim season, during the Short Course portion of the year having aged up to the 13-14 Age Group in November.  So far this season she has earned several short course Championship Times as well as one Long Course Championship Time qualifying her for Provincial Championships.

Elle has made great advances in all of her strokes but has seen the most improvement in the Breaststroke events.  She continues to work on her technique in the pool in addition to dryland strength training which will help her to reach her goals of qualifying for Western Championships, Nationals and the Alberta Summer Games in July 2018.

With Elle’s strong work ethic, her undeniable athletic abilities and her training experiences with ASDC-Central she will surely continue to grow, develop and succeed in her Swimming career!

ASDC-Central thanks Tom Bast Sports for celebrating the ASDC-Central Athlete of the Month recipients by the provision of commemorative apparel for each recipient.
