Thanks for a Great 2015 Summer!
A big thank you to all our outstanding instructors; we were lucky to have you at Sachems Head Yacht Club this summer, and many of you for multiple summers in a row: Sailing - Scott, Teddy, Matt, Julia, Kathleen, Ali, and Jimmy; Swimming - Emily & Nicole; Tennis - Steve & Meghan.  Thank you to all the kids for working so hard all summer and sharing so many smiles and laughs. 

The Junior Programs now have 7 new perpetual wall plaques for our most important program awards. Sailing: All-Star, Most Improved, and Best Sportsmanship. Tennis: All-Star, Most Improved, and Best Sportsmanship. Swimming: All-Star. These plaques will be prominently hung in the ballroom for all to see for years to come.

2015 Swim Program Award Winners:

As the summer came to an end, swimmers spent the week reviewing the details of each stoke and kick. Each class worked on diving at their level; sitting, kneeling, and standing dives. Swimmers practiced their form while diving over a noodle. We ended the week with game day. It has been a great season! We hope to see you all next summer!
