2022-2023 Welcome Letter
from CBC President Cyndy Higgerson
Good Day California’s Athletes, Coaches, Professionals, Families & Sponsors, The CBC had an impactful year with the value of opportunities it sponsored for all of our athletes in California. The CBC saw athletes from other states take advantage of the moments provided by participating in our successful events. It began in September 2021 with an All-In Critique via Zoom, October and December CAS Meets, January 2022 with a NBTA and USTA Sanctioned Miss Surfrider Competition in Fallbrook, April and May with PHMC and CA State in Lincoln and concluded in July 2022 with the CBC sponsored three-day National Training Camp gearing up for Stockton. The first of its kind in the state of California, the National Training Camp had been under consideration for two full years, and it came to fruition welcoming athletes from over 11 states. With the CBC standards of excellence, it was beyond enthusiastic to participate with the on-site daily involvement with the athletes, coaches and parents from across the nation.
The CBC Board is consistently striving and looking for events to positively increase space in our sport of baton twirling with the emphasis on the athletes. As with the National Training Camp, stay tuned for the big “reveal” of an outstanding and fun-filled dynamic twirling event in December.
As you begin setting new goals, skills, choreography and mapping out your baton twirling season, we invite you to take a look at the CBC website (californiabatoncouncil.com) for the 2022-2023 season. The CBC Board has already been setting the calendar for our sponsored events. The CBC club directors met in August, and they are excited to provide additional opportunities for athletes. The CBC will have four additional CBC Parade of Tournaments Competitions in our 2022-2023 season.
Southern California NBTA is also planning out their season and the NBTA competitions will be posted on our CBC website. The first NBTA competition is Sunday, October 9th, 2022 in the Los Angeles area. “The Legends Twirling Club” Kick of Season with potential opportunities of un-sanctioned USTA events. There are also traveling opportunities for athletes, coaches and professionals out of the state of California beginning in October.
We look forward to hearing from all of you as to what value the California Baton Council Board of Directors may bring to you and your twirling community. If any of you are interested in becoming a volunteer with the California Baton Council, please connect with me, so I may forward your interest to the appropriate committee. Your voice and commitment to our sport is always welcome.
At this time, let me introduce the 2022-2023 California Baton Council Board of Directors:
Executive Board Members:
Cyndy Higgerson – President
Paige Campbell – Vice President
Julia McCrone – Secretary
Kaelyn Lluen – Treasurer
We look forward to welcoming our athletes and celebrating their success on the competition floor.
