COLONIAL COMMUNITY AQUATICS
Dear Colonial Community Swimmers and Parents:
With the start of the 2016 winter swim season fast approaching, we are excited to introduce you to Colonial Community Aquatics (CCA)! We hope you will join us in what will be a lasting swim program for community members for years to come.
CCA is a newly formed aquatics program and the newest member of the Suburban Aquatic League (SAL). CCA is focused on the Colonial Community. It is CCA’s goal to provide all swimmers, of all ages and all swim levels, a community-based aquatics program to develop their swimming abilities, nurture a competitive spirit, and form community connections to last a lifetime. While there are many aquatic programs out there, CCA seeks to be your community-based team.
CCA is for all swimmers and divers. CCA is open to everyone – the novice swimmer and diver to those competing at the highest levels. It is by combining swimmers and divers of all ages and all levels that CCA seeks to provide a nurturing program for the community – one in which all swimmers, divers and families can be part of the team.
CCA understands the importance of the community-based aquatics program. A program in which swimmers and divers of all ages and skill level can develop their talents in the same community in which they live. A program that develops core life lessons of discipline, commitment and competition. A program that is fun for the swimmer and diver and keeps the parents involved and informed.
Who is CCA?
CCA was formed by current and past members and parents of the local swimming and diving community. CCA is composed of residents of the Colonial School District. The members of CCA include swimmers, divers, and alumni of the local aquatics community. CCA will offer experienced and highly skilled coaches, available to all swimmers and divers. Our team is made up of swimmers, divers, coaches, and parents who have been involved in the Colonial swimming and diving communities for decades and will continue to be involved for decades to come.
CCA is the Colonial Community. CCA was formed for the children of the community. CCA is made up of individuals who want to see the children of our community strive in sport and life. CCA was formed by the community to serve the community.
At CCA, we recognize the importance of role models in the lives of the community children. CCA will focus on providing strong role models – coaches, high school swimmers, and parents – to our swimmers and divers. CCA will develop a cycle of mentorship where today’s beginning swimmer is tomorrow’s leader.
CCA and You
CCA needs your support. Forming a new club – one which will serve the community for our children and generations to follow – requires the support and commitment of the community and its members. Here’s what you can do:
1.Commit – Take a moment and show your support by signing the CCA Petition at http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/cca. By signing the Petition, you will be supporting us in our mission to provide the aquatics program our Colonial Community deserves. Your support will allow CCA to obtain the community and administrative clearances and qualifications necessary to provide our children with the very best facilities, instruction and competition.
2.Get Involved – Thanks to the efforts of many parents and community members, CCA has become a reality. However, there is still much to do. Please volunteer whatever time and skills you can. CCA is looking for parents and community leaders to be involved. There is no contribution too small. In return, you will be a part of making CCA a lasting program and the pride of your children in your involvement.
3.Spread the Word – Please spread the word to community families that may be interested in getting involved in CCA. Whether it is a beginner swimmer or an Olympic hopeful, please spread the word about CCA and encourage community families to join CCA by signing the Petition and showing their support.
CCA wants to thank the Colonial Community. We thank you for the support the Colonial Community has shown through the process of forming the program and the continuing support as CCA launches its inaugural season. It is only through the community and its parents that CCA will succeed as a community aquatic program.
