March bills were emailed at the beginning of this month. Please be sure to get your payment in by March 25th. All accounts will need to be current in order for swimmers to begin long course.
Continue to check the calendar daily for practice times and note the following upcoming items:
- Age group practice for this season has concluded as we are not able to hold practice tonight due to the weather-related school closing.
- Last senior practice for this short course season: 3/29 (morning practices have concluded)
Congratulations to all the swimmers on their accomplishments during Junior Olympics and Bronze Champs. They did a fantastic job and CBST was very successful. Also, thanks so much to all our CBST volunteers who helped at the meets. It is truly appreciated - these meets could not run smoothly without your help!
Silver Champs - Upper Dublin Aquatic Club
Coach Stu has created an itinerary for our CBST swimmer's for this weekend's Silver Champs. Please read through the attached itinerary as it will help you navigate this weekend's meet.
Below is information that we received from UDAC regarding this weekend's Silver Champs. It includes information on officiating, volunteering, and warm-up times. Please take a few minutes to read through the information thoroughly so that you and your swimmer(s) are prepared for Silver Champs this weekend. Good luck to all our swimmers attending Silver Champs!
In an effort to run an efficient meet, there is some information I wanted to get out to all participating teams.
1. We are asking for timers for all Saturday and Sunday sessions for the meet. Timers will not have to pay admission fee for the session they volunteer. Before assigning timers, we ask teams to forward the below link to their families for volunteers:
2. UDAC would greatly appreciate any official who would be willing to lend a hand on deck for any portion of the meet. Eva Boratto is the officials coordinator, she can be contacted at Eva.Boratto@CVSHealth.com
Below is the link to sign up.
3. Warmup will run as follows:
Friday- open warmup
Saturday morning and afternoon sessions- Teams A through M in the alphabet will have first warmup, Teams N through Z will have second warmup, Sprints will be held after both sessions
Sunday morning and afternoon sessions- Teams N through Z will have first warmup, Teams A through M will have second warmup, Sprints will be held after both sessions
Finals- open warmup
We look forward to some fast swims and great times this weekend!
CBST swimmers who swim in prelims and qualify for finals at championship meets must swim in finals.
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. Barring an emergency, swimmers will not be scratched from events the day of the meet (if a swimmer wishes to scratch they must do so prior to the day of the meet). Unfortunately, sometimes emergency situations do arise in which a swimmer has to scratch the meet on the day-of. In such cases, please make sure you email both Julie Kline and Coach Stu to ensure that the coaching staff attending the meet is notified. It is difficult for both the meet director and our coaches to manage when they are unaware that a registered swimmer will not be in attendance.
Individuals not swimming in a meet (including parents and other family members of swimmers) may not be on deck during a meet (home or away) except when working as an on-deck volunteer at their assigned time. When on deck working, officials and other volunteers should be in the spot where they need to be to do their job (which is never the CBST team area).
