Who’s Ready for Summer?
Hello CBSC Members, and welcome to CBSC’s Summer of 2022!
This is our first eSeahorse to officially start summer. By Monday, lessons will be in full swing, so make sure to read through to get all the details because this is jam-packed!
Registration Day was a great day! The sun was shining, and everyone was smiling. A huge shoutout to Amy and Hailey and the registration team for a very successful Registration Day. It was extremely organized, smooth, and was in person for the first time in 2 years!
Clothing Orders: If you missed picking up your clothing yesterday, clothing orders will be available to pick up at the Family Picnic, on Thursday July 7th.
On Registration Day, you should have received your purple wristbands for the summer.
Now let’s “band together” and make CBSC a safe place for all of our members! Wear your CBSC wristbands at our facilities and all events. You’ll help us identify our members, protect our kids, and create a fun sense of community!
And there are 2 ways to win some prizes!
- This week, get ‘spotted’ wearing your wristband by our secret band spotters and you could win free coffee or freezies for the summer!!!!
- 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 grand prize!
