IMPORTANT DATES & UPCOMING DEADLINES:

- No age group practice April 28

- Saturday Age Group Practice times change May 5
Practices for long course have been posted on the CBST calendar. Note that practices needs starting in mid-July will be assessed based on USAS championship meet timing and CBST swimmer attendance at these meets so currently posted information may change. 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.
Note that times for age group practices on Saturdays have been adjusted to allow the swimmers to have the swimming portion of practice first followed by dryland (similar to the senior group). See calendar for details.
There will be no age group practice this Saturday, April 28th as a number of our coaches will be attending the Middle-Atlantic House of Delegates meeting.
Don’t forget your water bottle…The coaches would like to remind everyone of the importance of proper hydration and nutrition - especially as the weather begins to get warmer. Every swimmer should always have a water bottle at practice (on deck and during dryland) and be sure that they are eating a healthy meal and/or snack before practice.
COMMUNICATIONS / MEETINGS:
Our long course parent meeting is confirmed on April 30th at 5:45 p.m. in the classrooms near the pool (D204/D205).
Long Course Goals Sheet: Attached to this email is a goals sheet. Please have your swimmer complete the sheet as soon as possible and return to one of the coaches.
Parking lot at CB South – Be sure to park/stop only in a designated parking space. We’ve had a couple of fender-benders and many very close calls over the years and want to avoid issues going forward. Cars should never stop (with or without a driver inside) on the Bristol Road side of the building (diving well door) along the curb behind the designated parking spots. Please be sure your swimmer will not have to walk across where cars may be driving without an adult – it is always best to park in a designated spot and come into the building.
GAAC Mayflower Meet Information
Based on initial communication from the GAAC meet host, it appeared that we were going to be able to get into the GAAC Mayflower Meet. Unfortunately, due to the size of our team GAAC was unable to accept our meet entries at this time. The coaches have decided that they are not going to pursue another meet for this particular weekend. If your swimmer would like to deck enter into a meet, there are a number of options posted on the MA website at http://www.maswim.org/meets/2017-2018-ma-meet-central/. If you have any questions, please contact Julie Kline at firstname.lastname@example.org
