2017 January Newsletter

Note From the Board

Welcome to our first ever quarterly newsletter.  Our goal is to keep our members up to date with club activities and improvements to our beloved CSRC.

The CSRC Board is excited for the start of 2017. Our primary focus will be to continually improve our member experience at CSRC. We would like to thank everyone that participated in last year’s survey.  We received a lot of very useful feedback. 2 glaring areas for improvement were the pool and tennis bathrooms. The board is working diligently this year to build a plan to address both of these areas. Members should expect large improvement over the next 12-18 months.  

The CSRC Board is working to fill and replace several key positions.  If you would like to help out, please reach out to Scott at

Please be reminded that you will be receiving an email for membership renewal in February.  Please note the annual membership fee will increase by $25 this year to cover operating costs.  Please be on the lookout for the email.

Thank you for reading, and welcome to 2017
CSRC Board of Directors

  • Junior Tennis
    Congratulations to our five junior tennis teams comprised of 41 junior players.  Our 12U Intermediate team finished first in their division.  The 2017 spring season will be starting soon.  We will be fielding teams for kids from 10u to 18u and we welcome all interested tennis players to participate on our teams.  Look for additional information on Team Tennis in February.  In the meantime, hit up a junior clinic or two with Adam and Kevin and keep up your skills over the winter months. 

Swim Team

  • Our swimmers can’t race without our parent volunteers. Kammi and Allison are stepping down at the end of the season and are looking for two interested parents. This summer, you would learn the ins and outs by shadowing Kammi and Allison before taking over the reigns. Please consider this important role.
  • Our swimmers will have a new head coach – our very own Jack Smith!  Kammi and Allison are still interviewing assistant coaches but should be able to announce the swim coaching staff soon. That means volunteer and swimmer signups are just around the corner. 

Dive Team

  • Tammy Cornwell is our Dive Team Rep. and she needs assistance.  Please consider helping Tammy if your children are divers.

Member Focus

It takes a dedicated group of members to help make CSRC run smoothly - without our volunteers, we wouldn't have a swim and racquet club. Two of the board’s most committed members are stepping down: Nonie McVicker and Ellen Smith. Take a moment and read about their board experience. They will be missed. 

When did you join the board?  
NONIE: I joined the board in 1998 as the person in charge of personnel. We hired our own manger and lifeguards back in the day.
ELLEN: I joined the board about 10 years ago as the dive rep taking over for Linda Miller. 

What were your various positions on the board?
NONIE: Over the years, I've been in charge of personnel, Swim Team Rep, Tennis Committee, Social Chairman, Concession Chairman, Membership Chairman and President.
ELLEN: My official position has always been Dive Rep. However, I have helped with security cameras, bathroom up fits and socials.

What are your best memories?
NONIE: I have many fond memories!!! The first time my kids made the all-star meet. Wills winning the Dolphin Award. Parties galore! Opening of the new concession stand!! The best part of our club is all the friendships we've made. About 99% of my friends belong to our club!! Probably my fondest memory was taking a club that was almost in financial ruin and helping to grow it into the mega swim club that it is today!!! Taking over membership and putting out yard signs and creating an urgency to get your initiation fee to me or else someone would get your spot!!! EPIC!
ELLEN: I loved the years when my kids were active in the dive team and I helped coach. Seeing the kids learn to dive, especially new dives like the back dive, was very fun. 

What are some benefits as a board member? 
NONIE: Best part of being on the board is you get to be involved!!! You know what's going on. You try your best to make our club a happy place that people want to come to!! 
ELLEN: I loved being involved with the board:  going to meetings with my friends, making new friends, and planning the club's the future

Happy 2017!
