Crescent Beach Swimming Club

































































Bob Armstrong, President

Best Memory of CBSC:

"My CBSC memory?  Swimming lessons at the tanks with coach Frank Barker. We played swim poker. Every hand I lost, I had to take off two pieces of clothing; every hand I won, I could put one piece on.  When I was down to my bathing suit, I had to go in the water.  I was lousy at cards; so I ended up a being a pretty good swimmer."



Molly O'Callaghan, Past President

Best Memory of CBSC:

"Riding my bike thru the streets of Crescent Beach - cold and wet from swimming lessons,
in the heat of the day after a tennis match,
or in the dark after an event. No helmet,
total freedom.
"

Best Memory of CBSC:

"I have to say my fondest memory is the excitement of getting the Club ready. And then coming down to the beach, meeting up with new and old friends, and enjoying the summer that is CBSC!"

Best Memory of CBSC:

"Some of my favourite CBSC memories are of participating in, and in later years, coaching the Synchro Show. I am looking very forward to watching my daughter and nieces perform in the Synchro Show in the coming summers!"




Kate Montgomerie, Volunteer Coordinator

Best Memory of CBSC:

"My favourite memory from the club came when I was a new parent. I had been a coach for CBSC in my teen years and had gotten to know the kids well. You get to know the kids who will swim for you and who will refuse to swim and sit on the edge of the pool and complain about how cold the water is. Having babies in my early twenties provided me with the opportunity to participate in the club from a different perspective and I was able to watch my kids be taught swimming by the very kids who I had coached a decade before. My favourite memory was watching one particular kid who I coached, who regularly sat on the ladder and complained, having to deal with my own child sit on the ladder and complain. I feel like that is the Crescent Beach Swimming Club at it's finest."



Brad Persson, Lifeguard Liaison

Best Memory of CBSC:

"I have 56 years of fond memories of Crescent Beach and it’s hard to choose….

One of my favourite memories of summers past was the year CBSC ran a water ski program. We learned and trained on the Nicomekl to slalom, trick ski and build human pyramids while skiing. All this concluded with a water ski show in what is now the supervised swimming area between the tank and the beach. Of course we never practiced in this location and didn’t account for the power line that ran from the shore to the shack on the tank, nor the high tide. Mark Brewster was the top man on the pyramid and nearly got “clotheslined” by the wire. A quick reaction of ducking under the wire at the last second averted disaster! The crowd loved the show."



Marsha Larkin, Communications

Best Memory of CBSC:

"I love rainy days at Crescent Beach. Heading to the pool in our CBSC sweatsuits, the kids swimming in the pool in the rain, and then heading back home for hot chocolate. These are some of the best days, and make forever memories."



Morgan Brewster, Director at Large

Best Memory of CBSC:

"The first time I learned how to 'dry capsize' in sailing lessons! A real game changer for this skinny kid!"
