Hello GLCC Members!
I hope everyone is off to a good start to their summers. We have loved seeing those of you who frequent the beach and hope to see more of your families as the summer continues. Some updates from our team consist of our new Meet the Beachfront Staff board and a new water trampoline! Working towards growing relationships between new members of the staff this year and club members is something we are working hard to accomplish. The “Meet The Beachfront Staff” board was carefully pieced together by our own Emma Stubbs, and is located in the Quarterdeck. This board shows each member of our staff with some personal information on each lifeguard. We are also proud to announce that we have a brand-new water trampoline! Thanks to Mike for making that possible. It is in the water and is ready to go for a summer of blobs!
Swim lessons have begun! Shanyn Jewell and Olivia Bush are our two dedicated swim instructors this summer and are looking forward to working with kids of all ages on their swimming skills. Along with our swim lessons, we will be offering Drop-In Swim Clinics in the coming months starting on Monday, June 9th. Led by former & current High School Varsity swimmers, throughout the course of the clinic’s duration participants will earn and develop the four swimming strokes of Freestyle, Breaststroke, Backstroke & Butterfly. It will be a fun environment filled with stroke technique work and some fun and games in the water. These clinics will run Monday, Wednesday & Friday from 3-5 pm. On August 6th we will hold a swim meet and banquet! Contact Hannah or myself for more information or to sign up!
Swim lessons are geared for beginning swimmers while the swim clinics will be geared towards slightly more advanced swimmers. We will also be having a Kids Duathlon on August 24th. Duathlon will consist of swimming and running. Swimming will be completed in the swim area and running will be completed around the Country Club property. Kids will be divided into elementary, Middle and High School age groups. Each age group will complete a different length of event (younger kids will run & swim less distance; older kids will run and swim more distance). Once again, contact either Hannah or myself to sign up for any of these events!
Lastly we will hold 3 on 3 volleyball and soccer tournaments on July 21st. Pick your teams and sign up with myself or Hannah!
As always, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me! Thank you GLCC Members!
