March bills were emailed at the beginning of this month. Please be sure to get your payment in by March 25th. All accounts 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 has concluded for this short course season.
- The last senior practice for this short course season will be on Thursday, March 28th. (morning practices have concluded)
- Check the calendar for dates on which senior group morning practice will be available between senior champs and the start of the long course season.
- Long course practices begin on Monday, April 22nd. Check the calendar for daily offerings and timing.
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 High School Information document mentioned above. 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 posted document for more information. Additionally, swimmers who will be entering 9th grade next fall and do not have access to or will otherwise not be participating with a high school team should set-up a family meeting during the spring with Coach Stu so that he can offer guidance regarding options and expectations with regard to your child’s continued swimming.
Congratulations to our 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 our CBST volunteers who helped at the meets. It is truly appreciated - these meets could not run smoothly without your help! Good luck to our swimmers at Silver Champs and Senior Champs and thank you in advance to our volunteers at those meets.
