Updates and reminders are below:
· As of Friday, November 18, practice times will change due to the beginning of the high school swim season. Please check the calendar for your swimmer’s practice time each day.
· Please note, there will be a modified practice schedule during Thanksgiving week and over Winter Break. Make sure to pay attention to the CBST calendar each day - there are sometimes changes to originally posted times due to changes in building availability and/or high school team usage.
· Due to meet attendance, age group practice on Saturday 11/19 and all practices on 12/10 are cancelled.
· Flash participants – you should have received an email notification earlier today from me regarding receipt of your online waiver. Remind your swimmers to bring their equipment bags to all practices at all locations.
