Updates and reminders for this week:
Have any pictures taken at CBST events that you would like to share? Please email them to Julie Kline at firstname.lastname@example.org for possible posting on the CBST team website and/or CB Aquatics social media.
Reminder: No practice on Saturday (12/16).
See below for info about a college swimming informational meeting with Coach Stu early next month.
LONG COURSE 2018:
Communications about long course were sent to all current team members last Wednesday (December 6th). You were either sent a message stating that your swimmer is already registered for long course or one stating that you need to register your swimmer for long course if s/he wants to participate.
If you need to register, the deadline to contact me at email@example.com is January 21st (earlier, as always, is better so that you’ll have time to comfortably handle the requirements by the registration deadline).
Currently we plan that the long course practice schedule will be the same/similar schedule as last year (times and locations). Note that due to possible maintenance work that may need to be done at the CB South pool, practices may be held at CB East during the month of July. It is anticipated that the same long course facilities will be used as last year. To see last year's schedule, look at the team calendar for last long course (April-July 2017).
- Reminder: no practice on Saturday (12/16).
- Remember: Please check the calendar for your swimmer’s practice information each day. Due to meet attendance, holidays, and the high school team schedules, this month there are several days with unusual practice details/cancellations – please check the calendar daily so that you don’t inconvenience yourself.
- Recently added no practice date: Saturday, December 16th
- Swimmers not registered for the Flash group may not practice at Cornerstone under any circumstances.
Recall that the Middle Atlantic Swimming technical suit policy for 10 and under swimmers takes effect on January 1, 2018. See the attached document from MA Swimming for the policy and other details.
Congratulations to our CBST swimmers on a great meet this weekend at NCAP. The coaches are extremely proud of how hard all our swimmers have been working. Also, the NCAP Meet Director was very appreciative for all the volunteers from CBST that stepped up to help over the course of the weekend. We would like to thank our families for helping the NCAP meet staff run a successful meet.
COMMUNICATIONS AND BILLING:
Swimming in college: 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). Coach Stu will be holding an informational meeting for all CBST swim families to go over information about swimming in college on January 3rd at 6:30 p.m. in the classrooms by the pool at CB South.
Age group coach contact: Now that Coach Paul has moved on to his new team, the one appropriate contact for any age group coaching questions is Matt Scanlan at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please help ensure a smooth transition by following this procedure.
December bills were emailed last Monday (December 4th). Please make payment as soon as possible (so it doesn’t get overlooked at this very busy time of year) and no later than the 25th. Recall that payments may be dropped in the box at CB South (during practice hours) or mailed/hand delivered to the Community School Office at the address below. The drop box at CB South is inside a school building so is not accessible during school hours (you should only access this box during our practice times). If you need to drop off a payment at the Community School office when the office is closed, please seal your payment tightly in a plastic bag and place it in one of the drop boxes attached to the outside of that building.
