A swimmer from Barcelona in Catalonia, Spain will be joining CCSC in September 2014. Jessica is 18 and studying PE and education as well as training and coaching young swimmers. She would like to stay with a family for the academic year while improving her English. We also have a request for a host family for a 17 year old boy from Barcelona for July and August.
If you might be able to help, please contact Michele Slater at the club. (Michele was coach/team manager for an ASA south east international fixture in Barcelona in January - hence the contact!)
