Braelyn Thorpe was at the top pf her game. She earned 1st place victories in 3 different races, the 25 Fly (26.73), 25 Back (24.65), and 25 Free (23.42), and 2nd place in the 25 Breast at 30.64. We are so proud of her and all of our other swimmers who competed at the event and their families who cheered our swimmers on.

CSSC relies heavily on the support of our volunteers. They selflessly give their time to run things behind the scenes and their hard work is a huge part of our success.  A big thank you to Jorge Aguila, a team parent, who helped us greatly running and organizing the relays at the Sizzler.

Other highlights of the meet include Daniel Gil-Restrepo’s 3rd place finish in the 25 Back (32.37), and Jorge Aguila’s 3rd place finish in the 25 Butterfly (21.81).  David Rodriguez finished the 25 Fly just behind Aguila at 22.0, resulting in 5th place.  

CSSC Girls combined their efforts and made a fantastic showing in the 8 and Under 100 Relay. 2nd place was secured by teammates 6-year-old Braelyn Thorpe, 7-year-old Molly Chaison, and 8-year-olds Alejandra Gil and Sophia El Chantiry. Their time 1:22.28 was sandwiched between 2 teams from Pine Crest Swim Team who took 1st at 1:15.23 and 3rd at 1:23.6.

Our Boys took third place in the 8 and Under 100 Free relay. 7-year-olds Jorge Aguila and Alex Mitov, began the relay with speed and strong technique while 8-year-olds David Rodriguez and Dominique Aris finished it with an impressive final time of 1:23.52.

This Sizzler was the first meet for Noa Nierman, Samantha Grossman, Tomas Tavares Juvencio, Logan Jeffrey, Kenslee Ward, Catlin O’Mara, and Gabriel Delpino. We are thrilled with your performances at your first meet and are excited to see what your future with CSSC will hold in events to come.

The 2016 Piranhas Turkey Classic held on November 6th was hosted by the Pompano Beach Piranhas. CSSC was privileged to compete in this fantastic event and we saw amazing efforts and  great success from our swimmers.

 This was a first meet for Meaghan Swack, Avril Rosano, Josemiguel Marticorena, Jax and Cooper Yellin, Emma Lin, Max Cisternas, Adrianna Raucci, and Michael Tran. Coach Long happily reported that “they did great!

We saw some time drops at the Turkey Classic in a variety of events. In the 50 Fly, Courtney Hartung dropped 2 seconds (45.07) and Payton Schurr dropped 3 seconds (46.31). In the 50 Breast Kaitlyn Irwin and, Vivi Fernandez each dropped 8 seconds (1:04.97 and 55.53 respectively), David Rodriguez dropped 2 seconds (1:03.44), Oscar Dougherty dropped 4 seconds (57.74), and Catherine Voit dropped one second (55.19).

 The 50 Free was a blast for all of our swimmers and resulted in personal bests for many. Molly Chaison dropped 13 seconds (50.40), Oscar Dougherty dropped 14 seconds (40.84), Camden Dumas dropped 2 seconds (47.10), Courtney Hartung dropped 4 seconds (39.17), and Kyra Rattray dropped 4 seconds (43.02).

Although the three above events resulted in many successes and personal bests, the event that stood out the most was the 50 Backstroke, which was a very strong race for all kids. Coach Long saw great gains from Addison Palumbo (56.34), Emma Lin (59.66) and Kaitlyn Irwin (55.07).  Jack Maniscalco dropped 3 seconds (1:01.78), Kenneth Rattray 8 seconds (1:12.87), Antony Palumbo dropped 3 seconds (48.09), Valerie Block 21 seconds (49.25), and Camden Dumas dropped 3 seconds (54.48).  Coach Long attributes the success of these times to the efforts put forth by both swimmers and coaches at practice. She notes that “we have been really working hard on the backstroke specifically”.

Coach Bar Bogoslavsky also enjoys watching her kids compete. She said, “meets are a great way for me to see what needs to be worked on and I was very proud of Silver group in their races”. Coach Bogoslavsky will continue to train her students and she is “looking forward to our home meet in December”. 


2016 Halloween Celebration



Superman, Harry Potter, Ninja Turtles, a scarecrow, a Knight-in-Shining -Armor, a Ghost Buster, and a Life Guard were all guests at the Coral Springs Swim Club annual Halloween Party. The Party, held on Thursday, October 27th, was a screaming good time. Swimmers and families from Red, Green, Gold, White, Blue and Silver all gathered at Cypress pool to celebrate the holiday with delicious food, a DJ dance-party, and costume contest.


2Head Coach Bruno Darzi sends a HUGE thank you to Coach Emma for taking charge and running everything amazingly in his absence and another thank you to Mike Nagy (aka SUPERMAN), and Coach Bar. 

11He also adds “we couldn’t have done it without help and support from our amazing volunteers”. Thank you, Christine Palumbo, Maureen Voit, Jodi Thorpe, Mrs. Rattray, and Mrs. Lay, for helping with set up and especially with clean up. You are a big part of why the party was such a huge success.



The costumes were a variety of scary, original, and fun. The competition for the costume contest was fierce, there were so many great ones to choose from but the swimmers listed below won in each of their categories.

Red Group: Daniel Gil-Restrepo-Police Officer

Silver Group: Mateo Colussi -Harry Potter

Green Group: Kaitlyn Irwin-The Nerd

Gold Group: Kyra Rattray-Vampire Queen

White Group: Kayleigh Didovic- Greek Goddess

Blue Group: Payton Ward-Popcorn











Congratulations you, we have a sneaking suspicion that you will be getting way more tricks than treats on October 31st. We wish all CSSC families a safe and happy Halloween.
