Thank you to our retiring club captains, Dan and Jess Moore, who have done a fantastic job and are always a shining example to our younger swimmers. Congratulations to Jack Wilson and Olivia Wallace who were appointed club captains for 2015.
Our growing band of young volunteer coaches were also recognised for their hard work over the year - we are pleased to see so many older swimmers wanting to give something back to the club.
Thanks to our special guest presenters – Kate and Denniss Bull, our President Colin Holmes and Robert Sansom from our main sponsor Frank Key.
Many thanks to all those who helped at Club Champs this year in whatever capacity. These events can’t run without the support of volunteers and as people move on in the club we are looking for parents of the younger swimmers to step forward and fill some of these jobs. Don’t be afraid!! Please speak to Kath Needham about how you can help.
And finally, there are two people who deserve a special mention because without them none of this success would be possible. Kath Needham, our Chairman, who co-ordinated the Club Champs and organised the presentation evening and to Mark Moore, our Head Coach, who has had his most successful year in his time at CABSC.
