See email sent on Tuesday (9/11/18) regarding meet entries and remember the Monday, September 17th deadline to indicate availability for several meets.
Coaches will do entries for meets CBST is attending as a team and families should not contact meet directors. Conversely, CBST coaches/staff will not do entries/contact meet directors for any meet CBST is not attending as a team. Our coaches have a schedule that will provide adequate competition opportunities, however, if your swimmer plans to participate in a meet we are not attending as a team, please use TM Lite to complete the entries.
If you are registering your swimmer for a meet using TM Lite, remember that USA Swimming requires all swimmers to be registered with their full legal name and, thus, that is how CBST has registered them per the information you provided during registration with the team. This means first name, middle initial, last name per birth certificate or subsequent legal name change document. Be sure to include this correct and complete information when entering any meets on your own. (Specifically, when adding your athlete in TM Lite include first name, middle initial, last name, birth date, sex, and then click "build ID.")
All swimmers (particularly those new to our team who have previously swum on USAS teams and all swimmers swimming at meets CBST is not attending as a team) should carefully read the attached seed times document in full.
Information about the fall apparel sale through Kampus Klothes and ordering personalized caps will be provided shortly.

Note that you may bring your questions to the meeting or email them to Coach Stu ahead of time so that he may address them during the meeting. firstname.lastname@example.org We are holding a group meeting first so Coach Stu can have productive individual meetings with each junior and his/her parents later and everyone will have the general information. Please review the college information documents on the website (resources page) prior to the meeting.
