NCAP Invitational Meet Entries
The coaches have submitted a first round of entries for the NCAP Invitational meet. They are aware that there are meets over the next week where swimmers will have the opportunity to qualify for additional events and/or improve on existing times for previously qualified events. If your swimmer qualifies for an event and/or improves his or her time for a previously qualified event over the next two weeks, please email Julie Kline (email@example.com) and Coach Stu Kukla (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than Monday, November 20, 2017 at 11:59 pm. If we do not hear from you by this deadline our coaches will not be able to make any changes .
Jersey Wahoos Thanksgiving Celebration:
The final meet entries and psych sheet for the Jersey Wahoos Thanksgiving Celebration were sent to us by the Meet Director and are posted on the CBST website under the "Meets" tab.
At this time, we have not received any information and/or volunteering requirements from the Meet Director of the Thanksgiving Celebration meet. If CBST is required to volunteer during the meet, we will forward the information on to you as soon as we receive it. If your swimmer is participating in this meet, you should expect to be asked to volunteer at some point during the meet. If you plan on officiating during this meet or cannot volunteer during a particular session, please email Julie Kline at email@example.com. As always, thank you in advance for all your help during these "away" meets.
The information below was provided by the Jersey Wahoos Thanksgiving Celebration Meet Director regarding start times.
The morning sessions (9-10 & SENIOR) of the JW Thanksgiving meet are smaller than anticipated so we are going to push the times back 1 hour.
NEW MORNING SESSIONS WARM UP TIME: 8:00am
NEW MORNING SESSIONS START TIME: 9:00am
The 1650 will start 15 minutes after the morning sessions are completed and be swum in both pools.
Remember, the 1650 will be 15 minutes after the 500 free, please double check entries. If someone is entered in both events back to back, there is time to change events now to avoid swimming them back to back.
The afternoon (11-12 & 13-14) sessions warm up and start times remain the same, 1:30pm warm up / 2:30pm meet start.
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).
Meet Entry Communications:
Please note for every meet, all communications about entries are via the portal with any updates to be emailed to Julie Kline and Stu Kukla. If you need to have a conversation with a coach about entries, you must either modify your portal comments (preferable) or follow it up with an email to Julie AND Stu confirming the specifics of the conversation prior to the deadline for entry availability. Do not rely on the coach to remember. All charges for entries will be based only on documented portal and email communications.
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. 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 where a swimmer has to scratch the meet on the day-of. Please make sure you email both Julie Kline and Coach Stu to ensure that the coaching staff attending each meet is notified.
