Congratulations to your swimmer(s) for qualifying for the NCAP meet this upcoming weekend. Below is information that we have received from the meet director, please read all of the information carefully prior to leaving for NCAP. Attached is the psych sheet, preliminary timeline, parking information document and Coach Stu's itinerary.
Officials and Volunteer Assignments - NPAC has asked for families to sign-up to volunteer via the links below. There are two links; one for officials and one for non-officials. If you are able to help out at this meet please sign-up via the links below, it would be greatly appreciated.
Coach Stu has put together an itinerary for the meet including warm-up times, arrival procedures and general expectations, please review it and share with your swimmers.
Please recall that CBST coaches expect that all CBST swimmers attending meets with prelims and finals are expected to swim in finals if they qualify. If an emergency arises and you are unable to stay for Finals, please see the specific wording below from the NCAP meet announcement.
- • PVS Scratch Rules apply for swimmers scratching from finals.
- • If an athlete does not want to swim in the Final, the athlete may "scratch" from the event by following this procedure:
- The athlete must fill out and sign a Finals Scratch Slip within 30 minutes of the announcement of qualifiers for "A" and "B" finals, if scheduled.
- The athlete may declare an intent to "scratch". The athlete must fill out and sign a Finals Scratch Slip within 30 minutes of the announcement of qualifiers, marking the appropriate space for "intent". If an athlete declares an "intent to scratch" and does not wish to swim finals, the athlete must confirm the scratch on the Finals Scratch Slip within 30 minutes after the conclusion of his/her last preliminary event of the day or the athlete will be automatically seeded into the event.
- • If an athlete fails to properly scratch from an event and does not appear for the "Final" event, they shall be barred from further competition of the remainder of the meet.
For additional details regarding this weekend's meet please refer to the meet announcement located on our team website under the meets tab.
If you have any questions relating to the meet this weekend or if your swimmer's plans change and they can no longer attend NCAP please contact Heather Yim (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Stu Kukla (email@example.com)
