The CBST coaches would like to hold a Pasta Party for our swimmer's preparing for their championship season. The party is reserved for Tuesday, February 28, 2017 from 5:30pm - 8:00pm in the CB South cafeteria. The Administrative staff is looking for a parent volunteer that would be interested in coordinating this event. We have held this pasta party over the last few years and would be able to provide the parent volunteer with guidelines on running the evening. This is always an event that swimmer's enjoy prior to leaving for their championship meets. If you are able to help, please email Julie Kline at email@example.com. Thank you in advance for your consideration!
During bad weather – coaches will get to meets if they can do so safely. In the extremely rare event that no coaches can get to a meet, this update will be provided on Twitter – we cannot promise email/website updates. Also, any information we get from the meet hosts will be communicated as possible.
Mid-Winter Classic Meet Information
Below is the meet information that we received from the Mid-Winter Classic meet hosts.
The MA Silver Mid Winter Classic is only 2 days away and I would like to respectfully request your help. Official registration is very light at this time. Can you forward the below sign-up link to all of your team officials and request they register so we can get an accurate count of all officials willing to work the meet.
Please remind your officials that as a "Thank You" from BLUE they will receive a $10 gift card for each session worked. Please contact me with any questions.

Coaches and Swimmers,
Please follow the link below to reach the Mid-Winter Classic Meet Notes and Warm Up Schedule.
For those of you who asked about the possibility of a 1650, unfortunately we will not be adding that event.
Thank you for being tremendously patient these past weeks.
We are looking forward to a fun weekend with great swims.
CBST Winter Festival Officials
Below is the link for Officials to sign-up to volunteer for our meet. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Thank you in advance for all your help...our meet couldn't run smoothly without you!
Information about general volunteering for this meet was emailed earlier this week. Be sure to sign-up by next Wednesday (January 18th). Email me if you’re not sure how many sessions you owe.
COMMUNICATIONS / MEETINGS AND BILLING:
Please see the attached college recruiting information prepared by coach Stu. This is an important resource for all swimmers who may want to swim in college (as Stu notes in the document, there’s a college program for EVERY swimmer who wants to swim).
Bills were emailed last week. Please make payment as soon as possible and no later than the 25th of the month. Billing guidance was recirculated with last weeks email. If you have any questions about your bill after reading the guidance, please let me know.
LONG COURSE 2017:
If you need to register, the deadline to contact me at email@example.com is February 3 (earlier, as always, is better so that you’ll have time to comfortably handle the requirements by the registration deadline).
We anticipate that the long course practice schedule will be the same schedule as last year (times and locations). To see last year's schedule, look at the team calendar for last long course (April-July 2016).
