From YMCA –
We are happy to announce that our new swim team coach is Taylor Keen. Attached you will find a letter from her in regards to her swimming experience. Taylor is very enthusiastic and excited to start this year and we are happy to have her on board.
- Registration for swim team will begin Sept. 1 – 28th, 2017.
- Register at the YMCA front desk (registration form attached) OR
- Register online through YMCA of Beaufort County https://operations.daxko.com/Online/5153/Programs/Search.mvc
- Evaluations will take place September 25ththrough September 29th 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm. ALL swimmers (except high school swimmers) will need to undergo an evaluation, this will also provide time for Taylor to meet all of the swimmers. Please feel free to come in any of those days, you do not need to set up an appointment.
- Lastly, we will no longer be using TeamUnify. All team and meet registration information will be posted within the Aquatics section of our website http://www.ymcabeaufortcounty.com/aquatics/swim-team/, or emailed to you directly.
From Gaye –If anyone has students who will be 13 years old through senior grade who are interested in learning tennis and possibly being a part of a homeschool tennis team, please contact Gaye McNair email@example.com to sign up. Floyd Washburn, a long time CBC member, is on the local board of Public Tennis, Inc and a USTA member will help us arrange lessons and get this ball bouncing! If enough people contact me we will look at starting some lessons this summer, probably one day a week for 6 weeks. This would be a great way to introduce your kids to this “life” sport while adding hours towards the required PE credit. Fee for lessons $10 a session (Each additional brother or sister is only $5) and that’s a really good deal! Lessons would be held in the Mossy Oaks area.
Don’t put it off…we need to know interest level. Thanks!!!
Lots of choices for swimmers this season! YMCA Tigersharks

Public Tennis is looking for volunteers to help with its programs serving youth and people with special needs. Tennis skills are not necessary! Volunteer as much or as little as suits your schedule!
Helping our athletes is easy and fun!
Contact email@example.com or call Wayne Lilley at 978‐571‐1475.
From its beginning, PTI recognized that despite hundreds of private and gated tennis courts and facilities in the greater Hilton Head area, very few courts were available for public use. In the early 2000’s, PTI raised funds and secured matching funds enabling the Town of Hilton Head to build Chaplin Public Tennis Center. Subsequently, PTI facilitated the procurement of additional courts for public use and acted as facility operator of various courts on an interim basis.
PTI offers grants and sponsorship to players who aspire to pursue higher levels of tennis and who seek scholarships for college education. Starting in 2017, we are proud to be part of a new USTA initiative to grow tennis by involving young children and their parents in play which is largely parent organized.
Thank you for your consideration! Wayne Lilley, President, Public Tennis Inc. 978‐571‐1475
- Evaluation forms must be picked up inside the church fellowship hall. Upward greeters will be on site to guide you to the appropriate room.
- Uniform fitting will take place inside the registration room. This is an excellent time to properly fit your athlete for their upcoming season.
- Bring water or other hydration for your athlete.

Beaufort County School Sports Information scroll down to charter/homeschool links…..
Homeschooled, charter and Governor School students may participate in extracurricular activities in their school district. Not every student will want to take advantage of this program, but we are grateful that homeschooled students now have this opportunity. Many CBCCA students participated last year and had a great experience. We hope that our homeschooled students will be both a blessing and an asset to the local schools’ athletic programs.
Football, swimming, volleyball, competitive cheerleading, girls tennis, girls golf and cross country usually have a first practice date in August. According to the Homeschool Eligibility Request Process you need to submit your request to the district Request(s) received at the District Educational Service Center from the parent/guardian ten (10) days prior to tryouts/practice of a requested sport. Application serves as notice of a student’s intent to participate. The district is requiring that this information is turned in (10) ten days before the first practice in order to confirm each student’s eligibility.
Contact the school that you wish to participate in to get dates and details on the season. Below are the tentative start dates to get you started.
We had a great time yesterday for FitKidz!
We have a couple of “WANTS” for next time as we change up the obstacle course.
