NEW SCHEDULE BEGINS TUESDAY, OCTOBER 10. Please check the calendar on the website for practice times and locations. Please be aware that often times there are last minute changes. Continue to refer to the calendar on a daily basis for the most updated schedule. Starting this week the coaches will be adding dry-land to practice at CB East for the Advanced and Next Generation practice groups. Those two practice groups should arrive and be prepared to start dryland at 5:30 p.m. on the days practice is at CB East.
Once SAL teams (CBAC and SWAC) are in the water (starting on 10/10), please remember that all CBST swimmers are expected to practice only with CBST even if they are also registered with CBAC or SWAC. This is the only way we can accommodate all of the swimmers on each team and comply with insurance requirements. We appreciate your cooperation with this necessary policy.
There will be no age group practice on the following October dates:
October 13 (football game)
October 27 (football game)
October 31 (holiday)
These dates as well as others are on the team calendar. As additional conflict dates approach they will be included in team emails as possible but please remember to check the calendar often.
