“The Buccaneers are committed to providing our members with a world-class experience in which they

what this team has in store for our members and fans this year.”


Each person on the team brings to the table a deep resume in the activity, with virtually all having
extensive experience in the Buccaneers organization as both performers and instructors. Some are new to their roles, yet each brings a demonstrated understanding of and commitment to “the Buccaneer way” of total-team excellence in every section and every caption, in the context of an exceptional member experience.


Stay tuned for additional staff announcements in the coming weeks.


The Buccaneers express their deep gratitude and appreciation to Christopher Feist, Bobby Jones, Victor Cummings, Mark Thurston, Johnny Trujillo, Grant Butters and Dave Caravella for their outstanding
