Updates and reminders are below.
Check the calendar for details of practices
- There is no age group practice this Saturday (June 17) due to the volume of our swimmers and coaches who will be away at the NLAC meet.
- Age group will begin the summer practice schedule on June 19th.
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 meet entries for NLAC and PAAC and are posted on the team website (meets page).
Scratching from Meets:
Once entered into a meet, CBST swimmers are expected to swim all the events that they have signed up for. If your swimmer’s plans change ahead of time 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 they are unaware that a registered swimmer will not be in attendance. Barring an emergency, swimmers will not be scratched from events the day of the meet (if a swimmer wishes to scratch they must do so prior to the day of the meet).
Individuals not swimming in a meet (including parents and other family members of swimmers) may not be on deck during a meet (home or away) except when working as an on-deck volunteer at their assigned time. When on deck working, officials and other volunteers should be in the spot where they need to be to do their job (which is never the CBST team area).
