The Delray Beach, Fla., club’s new Junior Board consists of a group of juniors, ages 10 to 18, who meet quarterly with the club’s General Manager and Kids Manager to discuss events, give feedback, and brainstorm new ideas.
Mizner Country Club in Delray Beach, Fla., has established a Junior Board of Directors.
The new Junior Board consists of a group of juniors, ages 10 to 18, who meet quarterly with the club’s General Manager/Chief Operating Officer, Larry S. Savvides, and Mizner’s Kids Manager, Kristy King. At this formal meeting, they discuss upcoming events, give feedback on previous activities, and brainstorm for new and exciting events and endeavors for the future.
“The goal of the program is to empower Mizner’s next generation with leadership skills and promote dependability and creativity among Mizner’s junior population,” said Savvides.
One of the first recommendations by the Junior Board was an “Open Gym” time for Juniors to utilize the club’s fitness center enabling them to work out and meet their peers. Mizner’s Board of Directors approved the program and have now established Open Gym for juniors, ages 10 and up every Saturday from noon to 3:00 p.m. The center is supervised by a Certified Personal Trainer to properly monitor and educate the juniors on posture, proper form, nutrition, strength, endurance and power.
“The Junior Board is directly involved in the planning process of Mizner Kids’ events which are scheduled year-round at the club,” said King. “They’re expected to attend all their Board meetings, come dressed in their customized Junior Board shirts, and contribute to the success of Mizner’s family programming.”
