Canyons Team Members and Families,
Canyons Board of Directors would like to announce the retirement of long-time Board member Ron Mita. We wish to express our sincere thanks to Ron for all his years of service on the Board, 11 years helping to lead Canyons in the direction of excellence that we continue to follow today. He was instrumental in Canyons being awarded all of the USA Swimming Open Water National Championship that we’ve hosted, and his enthusiasm and knowledge was pivotal in its success. His energy, ideas, and leadership will be missed.
The club will continue to thrive and grow with the leadership of our Coaching Staff, Office Staff, Meet Committee, Board of Directors and most importantly, the parents of our swimmers. With Rons' retirement, Mark Osowski (current Vice President) will step into the 6th Seat, an appointed position, and become a Member at Large. The Board of Directors have discussed all options and have chosen to have Garry Helgeson, current Board President, serve the remaining year of the vacated term.
We are looking forward to a great season ahead and ask for your continued involvement and support in keeping Canyons the successful and top-notch swim program it is. Again, our heartfelt thanks to Ron Mita for everything -may your 2nd retirement from swimming be enjoyable, you've earned it!
Canyons Board of Directors
