Week 1 – What a Treat!

It felt like summer would never, ever come, but it’s finally here. What a treat it is to be back in the pool, on the tennis courts, and on the tank.

Pretty sure I overheard some parents say how tired (dare I say exhausted?) their kids were after the first day of lessons. You’re welcome for helping getting your kids to bed on time! And by now, everyone is settling into their routines. Pretty soon your kids will be heading to their lessons like clockwork. Last night’s Family Picnic/Seahorse Welcome was a huge success – white and green never looked so good! So many family fun activities, and a meet and greet of the coaches, staff and board members too. The fun continues this weekend on Sunday with the ever popular Sandcastle Contest, followed by the Adult Mixed Doubles tourney. Between all that, don’t forget to get your costume for PNO. Take a nap when you can!


It’s been great to “spot” so many CBSC wristbands at all of our activities and events. You are helping us identify our members, protect our kids, and create a fun sense of community!

Our secret band spotters handed out lots of tickets this week, and the winning numbers for the raffle draw are:

  1. 08749562
  2. 08749608
  3. 08749715
  4. 08749740

Congratulations winners! Bring your ticket into the office to claim your prize. You can choose free coffee or free freezies for the summer!

There’s still an opportunity to WIN! Take a group photo banding together showing your wristbands. Tag your photo on IG with #bandsonhands #bandtogether and #CBSC2022, and you’ll be entered into a draw to win a sweet CBSC prize!
