Please check the calendar on the team website for the times of your swimmer's practice group. http://www.cbswimteam.org It is a good habit to check the calendar daily for any changes.
CBST members must wear CBST caps at meets (if they wear a cap). If you need caps please email Julie Kline at email@example.com . Note that Julie needs at least one week’s notice prior to when you need the cap to be at CB South for pick-up so please plan accordingly. Your cap purchase will be billed to your account. (Silicone $15 or Latex $8) At this time of year the caps available are non-personalized CBST caps. Swimmers wishing to order personalized CBST caps will be able to do so in the fall.
Save the Dates: CBST’s hosted meets for the 2018-19 season will be on October 27-28, 2018 and February 9-10, 2019. Please mark your calendars now as CBST swimmers (and parent volunteers) are expected to participate and these meets are a great opportunity for your swimmer.
Jersey Wahoos Summer Solstice Meet
The meet entries for the JW Summer Solstice Meet are posted on the CBST website under the "Meets" tab.
Please recall that the JW meet has qualifying time standards. If your swimmer indicated that he/she was available to participate in this meet, but unfortunately currently does not qualify, we recognize that there may be a few opportunities for your swimmer to qualify for the Summer Solstice meet this spring. If your swimmer qualifies for this meet in the upcoming weeks and he/she would like to enter into the meet, please email Julie Kline (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Stu Kukla (email@example.com) NO LATER THAN JUNE 3, 2018 at 11:59 PM with the events that your swimmer would like to swim at the Summer Solstice. There are no guarantees that we will be able to enter your swimmer into this meet, but the Meet Director has encouraged us to send over any new athletes that may qualify and they will do their best to enter them.
