Please see updates and reminders below.
Unbelievably, we’re getting close to the end of the season! As each group’s championship meets occur, practices typically end for that group, however as we know some swimmers wish to continue practicing, we’ve provided practice for all groups to the extent possible given coach availability while we have coaches at meets. There are many changes to available practices (not listed in this message), so please take care to check the calendar EVERY day prior to heading out to practice. The calendar as listed now reflects all practices we anticipate for the rest of the season but if changes occur the calendar will be updated. Note the following:
- No practice at South on 7/19 or 7/20
- Last age group at Nor-Gwyn 7/20
- Last age group practice at CB South 7/25 (age group swimmers attending Zones should ask Matt or Chris for practice information beyond this date)
- Last senior practice at Nor-Gwyn 7/25
- Last senior practice at Whites Road 7/26
- See calendar for available senior practices at CB South now through 8/2
SHORT COURSE 2019-2020:
- Registration deadline 8/15
- Practices begin 9/4
- Senior morning practices begin 9/9
- Tentative date for parent meeting 9/9
- Hosted meets 10/26-27 and 2/8-9
See separate emails previously sent to participants regarding Junior Olympics.
Watch for a separate email (to be sent to just participants) regarding Silver Champs next week.
For qualified, interested swimmers, Zones information may be found here: https://www.teamunify.com/team/ezmaslsc/page/zone-team.
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).
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 Heather Yim at firstname.lastname@example.org and Coach Stu at email@example.com as soon as possible. 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). Unfortunately, sometimes emergency situations do arise in which a swimmer has to scratch the meet on the day-of. In such cases, please make sure you email both Heather and Stu to ensure that the coaching staff attending the meet is notified. It is difficult for both the meet director and our coaches to manage when they are unaware that a registered swimmer will not be in attendance.
Please do not contact meet hosts directly regarding entries for meets into which CBST has entered as a team. This causes the potential for problems with entries for your swimmers and other swimmers on our team, and often damages our team’s relationship with the meet host, jeopardizing our future ability to get into their meets.
Championship meets with prelims and finals: CBST swimmers who swim in prelims and qualify for finals are expected to swim in finals.
July bills were sent on July 5th. If you did not receive your bill, please check your junk/spam and if you cannot locate it email me right away. Remember ALL accounts receive a bill every month (even if $0 is due) so even if you believe you have no balance please email me for your bill if you don’t have it. Bill payments are due as usual by July 25th. The deadline for 2019-20 registration is August 15th. Remember that all CBST accounts must be up-to-date for registration to be complete.
Good luck to our swimmers at Junior Olympics and Silver Champs and have a wonderful weekend.
