Modified Champs/Graduating Senior Update
Dear Swim & Dive Chairs,
I am sad to inform you that we are officially ending our 2020 CCSAKC swim and dive season and we will be unable to host a ceremony or recognition event for graduating seniors. We really appreciate Blue Hills Country Club and Kansas City Country Club’s efforts to try to do something for our graduating seniors but in the end, the pandemic was too powerful. As the number of positive COVID-19 cases has been increasing at an alarming rate in our community, our clubs have responded quickly to prevent the spread of the virus. Planning a celebratory event for the seniors that would keep kids and adults safe amidst the challenges of the virus proved too difficult.
We will still be communicating with you over the next week regarding coaches’ interviews, League awards, and senior items. Kim Aliber and Karen Kerr from Kansas City Country Club are still preparing recognition certificates, senior books, and a special video tribute featuring all graduating seniors in the League. We will be in touch about getting these items to your Clubs and to your seniors. We do hope that each of your Clubs is able to offer something for your own swimmers and divers to offer closure on the season and to celebrate these seniors.
I appreciate the incredible efforts of the Executive Committee and the volunteers from all of our clubs that gave our kids an opportunity to swim and dive this summer. It was fun while it lasted and it gave our kids a chance to experience a little normalcy in the midst of this time that is anything but normal. We hope that everyone stays healthy and safe.
