Meet Entry Process:
Scratching from Meets:
If your swimmer’s plans change and s/he is unable to attend a meet that s/he is entered in, please email Julie Kline at firstname.lastname@example.org and Coach Stu at email@example.com as soon as possible. During long course meets, it can be especially difficult for both the meet director and our coaches to manage when we are unaware that a registered swimmer will not be in attendance. Thank you for your help.
Long Course Volunteer and Officiating Responsibilities
As in the past, CBST will be assigned to work during the Long Course Championship meets. If your swimmer is participating in a meet, you should expect to be asked to volunteer at some point during that meet. If you plan on officiating during this meet or cannot volunteer during a particular session, please email Julie Kline at firstname.lastname@example.org.
