· Recall that there will be no age group practice tonight, October 21st (football game) or October 31st (Halloween).
· Swimmers are reminded that they should never leave their swim bags or other belongings in the locker rooms. All items should be placed in the swimmer’s bag and bags should be left on deck for the duration of practice.
· Senior Flash Swimmers – Those participating full or part time in this practice group during the high school season should have received an informational email from me (including the permission slip link that must be completed). If you were planning to participate with this group but didn’t receive that email please contact Coach Stu.
· Advanced and Next Generation practice groups – remember these two practice groups should arrive and be prepared to start dryland at 5:30 p.m. on the days practice is at CB East. This is optional for those groups.
If you ordered any CBST apparel this fall, the items will be available to pick-up during our Autumn Festival meet. If you will not be attending this meet, and you ordered team apparel, a separate communication will be sent out regarding a pick-up time and location.
CBST coaches require all CBST swimmers to wear a CBST cap during any USA Swimming meet that they are attending. If you did not have the opportunity to purchase a personalized swim cap or just want to make sure that you swimmer is ready for the fall season, please email Julie Kline at email@example.com and she will arrange for your purchase of a non-personalized CBST cap.
Please continue to check the "Meets" tab on the CBST website for up-to-date information on upcoming meets that CBST is attending. Included on this page is a full list of the meets that CBST is attending throughout the season, along with the meet information page for that particular meet. Once a meet host accepts our entries, the Administrative Staff will post the file for your reference. If you have any questions about meet entries, please contact Julie Kline firstname.lastname@example.org and Coach Stu email@example.com .
Meet Availability for the NCAP Invitational and the Blue Eagle Duck Hunt'n Derby is currently located in your portal. Please indicate your swimmer's Availability in the portal no later than Tuesday, November 2, 2016 at 11:59 pm. If you have any questions about either of these two meets, the links to the meet sheets can be found on our website under the "Meets" tab. Consistent with the previous meets this fall, when indicating Availability, please be sure to utilize the "Comments" section for events that you prefer your swimmer to be entered into or any information that is important for the coaches to know as they are selecting events for your swimmer.
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. Unfortunately, sometimes 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 as they are in contact with the coaching staff attending each meet.
