Information about an additional LC meet is below.
In choosing meets for our team to attend, the coaches have a great deal of practical experience with meets that are traditionally good experiences for our swimmers. These meets have the best reputation in the area and tend to fill the fastest and in some cases unexpectedly the format of the meets change from season to season. Due to unforeseen circumstances, our coaches recognize that some swimmers may not currently have the opportunity to swim due to NT (no times) or qualifying time standards, thus the team will submit entries to attend the PAAC Firecracker Meet to be held July 6th through July 8th. Note that given the timing and details of meets offered and our coaches’ previously mentioned knowledge about long course meets, this is the last meet that we can attempt to add to the CBST schedule for long course 2018. We understand that this process can be confusing (especially for new USAS swimmers). Know that our CBST coaches/staff are doing the best possible job for our swimmers given all circumstances. For additional details/explanation regarding the meet process challenges during long course please refer to the long course meet entries email (including its attachment) sent on February 8th. Thank you as always for your understanding and assistance in this process.
Parkland Aquatic Club Firecracker Meet
The Parkland Aquatic Club Firecracker Meet is currently uploaded in your athlete's portal with an Availability deadline of Sunday, April 29, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. If your swimmer(s) is interested in attending this meet, please indicate their Availability and in the Comments section write EXACTLY the events that you would like your athlete(s) to participate in. The PAAC Firecracker meet sheet is attached to this email for your reference. Please take note of entry limitations and which events are on which days so that the coaches are clear as to exactly which events to enter your swimmer(s) into. Per the attached meet information NT times will be accepted so there are not qualifying times for this meet. If you miss this deadline, there will likely not be an opportunity for our coaches to add you into the meet at a later date.
Please keep in mind that times from the Firecracker meet will not be eligible to qualify for Senior Champs. The coaches do not know if the times achieved at the PAAC Firecracker meet will be able to be used for other championship meets (such as Silver Champs or Junior Olympics) as the meet information has not been posted at this time. If you have any questions, please contact Julie Kline at email@example.com.
Thanks again and have great weekend,
