The CCSAKC established the Wally E. Daniels award in 1979, following the untimely death of Wally, the son of Mr. and Mrs. E Daniels. He was a diver and swimmer for Blue Hills Country Club for 12 years and the diving coach for Carriage Club for two years.
Graduating senior swimmers and divers are eligible for the award. It is not based on swimming or diving ability alone, but on loyalty to the CCSAKC program, team spirit, sportsmanship toward team members and opponents, and a willingness to work with younger swimmers and divers.
