Please help us wish Coach Ralph luck with his move to New Jersey and thank him for his years of service with CBST. He will be greatly missed.
The coaches would like to remind everyone of the importance of proper hydration and nutrition - especially during the hot days of summer. 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.
Recall that all meet entries have been emailed and are posted on the team website (meets page).
The Junior Olympics meet sheet has been posted on the MA website (and is also on the CBST website).
