We’re off to a Swell 🌊 , Swimming 🏊🏽 , Smashing 🎾 Start!
Happy Friday everyone! The first week of CBSC did not disappoint: the sun was shining, concession was hopping, lessons across all disciplines were full of happy kids meeting their coaches for the first time, and the Seahorse Picnic was a hit last night. So many family fun activities, and a meet and greet of the coaches, staff and board members too. The best part? We get to continue the fun for the next 7 weeks. And THANK YOU to everyone for doing their part in keeping our beautiful facilities clean. There are lots of events coming up on the calendar so don’t miss out.
A reminder to practice safe biking and driving when getting to and from CBSC. Speed limit is 30 km/h – please no speeding!
For drivers, we encourage you to stay on the main roads so the side streets can be free for young children biking & walking to and from lessons.
Parents, we’d really appreciate it if you could talk to your kids (young and old) about biking around CB, and coming down the hill from Sandy Trail or any other pathways. Bikers need to remember to share the roads and lanes with cars (and people!); stay on the shoulder of the road and slow down at any cross traffic pathways.
Also, our Artistic Swim Program takes place at the Mathisen Farm, located immediately after the railroad tracks, as you round the corner onto Sullivan St. Please be aware of the crosswalk.
Thank you for keeping the streets of Crescent Beach safe!
Cardio Tennis on Wednesdays!
Our cardio tennis class is so popular, we added a third class on Wednesday mornings at 7:45 am. There is still space available, call the office to register.
Mixed Doubles Tournament
Sunday, July 9th 10am
It’s time to team up, unleash your skills and take on opponents with a dash of witty banter and a hint of competitive camaraderie! The CBSC Mixed Doubles Tournament starts at 10am Sunday morning. FREE, both partners sign up on Activenet https://anc.ca.apm.activecommunities.com/cbsc/activity/search/detail/8494?onlineSiteId=0&from_original_cui=true

Lastly, a gentle reminder: Please ask your children not to take the tennis balls from the tennis area. We need these balls to teach all summer and we are already missing a significant amount of balls in just the first week. Much appreciated, and thank you!
