Most of you already know and love Cha-Ling O’Connell, who has done amazing things as the Adult Program Director and, previously, Assistant Director. This season, Cha is joined by Jen Bodde and Hugh Freund. Jen, who will be stepping into the Adult Program Director role, has been with Courageous for almost 5 years as an instructor, curriculum consultant, and Frostbiter. Hugh Freund joined Courageous as a core staff member and instructor last year and is the guru behind our new website; when he’s not off training and competing for a Paralympic berth in the Sonar fleet, he’ll be spearheading our communication and marketing efforts. Cha will continue to take the lead on membership and sales. With this dream team at the helm of the adult program, we’re confident that 2013 will be a terrific year.
