Junior Sailing Subcommittees
Since CSC is an all-volunteer club our junior program relies heavily upon member/parental support and commitment. While CSC retains junior coaches for the summer sailing classes, in order for junior sailing to continue year-round, we must rely on parent volunteers. So, you ask: "How can I be of help?" The answer is to volunteer for one of the three junior sailing subcommittees.
In an effort to foster year-round junior sailing, we have created three subcommittees within our Junior Sailing Program, each focused on a particular function. You may volunteer to assist with one or more of these subcommittees, based on your particular talents or inclinations. The three subcommittees are:
1. Junior Open Sailing/Race Subcommittee: The function of this committee will be to provide rescue boat support (in the 15-foot Whaler) for junior sailors who want to come out and sail on Sunday afternoon. The only qualification is competence in powerboat operation and rescue procedures, or a willingness to learn and gain competence in these areas. Our plans for Sunday junior open sailing depend on volunteers for this committee. Those interested in volunteering should contact Sandy Denison at Ed@cscsailing.org or 214-826-3998.
2. Junior Social/Entertainment Subcommittee: The mission of this committee is to plan more events like the great Halloween Party/Open House that we had last Fall. While the focus will be on sailing, there are a lot of possibilities for other junior events and functions that will get our young sailors out to the club for a good time on and off the water. If you would like to help with this committee contact Nicole Keehn who has volunteered to lead these efforts. To contact Nicole, email or call Sandy Denison as indicated above and he will put you in touch.
3. Junior Equipment/Facilities Subcommittee: The thankless task of this committee is to tackle the never-ending job of keeping the junior equipment and facilities in shape. If you have a talent for fixing boats, we could use your help with minor repairs, such as replacing tiller extension joints, retying Opti sails and other minor maintenance to our junior club boats and rigs. Assistance with keeping the junior shed organized and ship-shape would also be appreciated. If interested in working with this committee contact Sandy Denison by email or phone as indicated above.
