CBST Pasta Party - Volunteer Needed
The CBST Pasta Party is scheduled for Monday February 26, 2018. We are looking for one additional volunteer to help with the party. If you are able to help make this party a success for our swimmers, please contact Julie Kline at email@example.com. Thank you in advance for considering.
CBST Spring Fever
NOTE: If your swimmer has turned 13 since our October meet s/he has– moved to the PM session of the meet – please be aware of this when planning your day and selecting your volunteering sessions.
The volunteer sign-ups for the Spring Fever Meet are currently available in the portal. The link to the sign-up is front and center in the announcements section. Please log on to your portal and sign-up to volunteer as soon as possible to ensure that you get spots in your preferred sessions – many people have already signed-up. Volunteer sign-up will be open in the portal through Wednesday, February 7th at 11:59 p.m. (though it may fill up prior to then). Anyone available for set-up and break-down on both days should email me and should NOT sign-up through the portal. Officials should NOT sign-up through the portal but should sign-up per below.
OFFICIALS: We are looking for officials to help during our Spring Fever meet. If you are able to officiate, please sign-up using the link below. If you have any questions, please contact Julie Kline at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As always thank you so much for your help. We couldn't run our meet without your support!

COMMUNICATIONS / BILLING:
In order to help our swimmers and their parents navigate the transition from age group swimming to swimming in our senior group and also the transition to high school team swimming, we have prepared the attached document. All families with a swimmer currently in 8th grade should read this document now. Keep in mind that swimmers progress to the senior practice group within CBST in the same manner in which advancement occurs within age group. Thus, swimmers do not automatically advance to the senior practice group upon becoming a 9th grader, but rather, will advance to the senior group when they are ready as determined by the coaches. Please see the attached document for more information.
Recall that Roberta will be meeting with age group parents tonight at CB South tomorrow at 6:30 p.m. to discuss the coaching transition given Paul’s departure. She will be either in the hallway outside the pool or in one of the classrooms near the pool (D204/D205). If you can’t make it but have something you’d like to share please email Roberta at email@example.com.
February bills will be emailed early next week. Please check junk/spam if you don’t see it in your inbox and let me know right away if you don’t have your bill. Payments as always are due on the 25th.
