U10, U12 and U14 Water Polo Tournament
Wednesday, July 27

Next Wednesday, July 27th, CBSC will be hosting our annual water polo tournament for teams across the Lower Mainland. Come out and support the seahorses as they compete against some of the best teams in water polo. The coaches have been preparing the athletes to be able to handle up to four games in the one-day tournament. With the great participation numbers in our club, we will be entering more teams in each age level than any other club!

*There will be NO FAMILY SWIM on Wednesday.*


T’was the night after PNO
And much to our surprise
The parents rallied!
Although, many sleepy eyed,
To bring their kids to the courts
Where many matches were played!
All left with ribbons and tales of their day.

Congratulations to all the kids and adults who participated this past Sunday in the Child and Adult Tennis tournament.

Next up: The July Junior Singles Tournament, Wednesday, July 27
This tournament involves competitive play with official scoring and is a great opportunity for players to work on their skills in a real match. This event is a “bracket tournament” that guarantees all players a minimum of two matches. The tournament is open to players who are registered in lessons or in Junior League.

Players will play the colour ball of their lesson. Pre-registration is required on Activenet by Monday, July 25.

Players are allowed one entry and may only register for the category of their lessons. If there are any questions please ask Head Coach Asher.

You can also find more information HERE.
