BUFFALO, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 27, 2018--Buffalo Area Aquatic Club (BAAC) http://www.buffaloswimming.com Announced the release of BRB, I Need to go to Swim Practice - the first Swimming Book by Luciana Alessi, first time author and elementary student. She becomes the second 9-year old in US history to publish a chapter book.

Luciana Alessi compiles a year’s worth of memories about her favorite sport: swimming. In her book BRB, I Need to Go to Swim Practice, Lucy (as she prefers) speaks to her experience at swim practice and competition. She recounts the challenges that she faces through the sport as well as all the great times and many friends she has made. She also speaks to how swimming has helped her develop good habits like listening to coaches, overcoming disappointment, and developing confidence.

The book got started as Lucy’s father encouraged her to write down her experiences. On Sunday mornings Lucy poured out her swimming tales of the past week to her dad. Upon hearing the stories, her dad thought they were too valuable not to be captured. In the book you will learn about the:

ins-and-outs of circle swimming etiquette! how to write your heat and lane on your hand to not miss your race! the benefits of tinted goggles!

Lucy says, “I think swimming is a great sport. It’s not only a safety skill, it’s also a lot of fun, Swimming is challenging and you’ll make the best friends. I would recommend swimming to anyone.”

In addition to publishing, Lucy aspires to grow her swimwear line Lucy Swimwear. She also has a presence in her community of Clarence, New York as a mentor of children in adaptive swim programs which provide swim lessons to children with disabilities.
