Registering for meets with TM Lite
If you are registering your swimmer for a meet using TM Lite, remember that USA Swimming requires all swimmers to be registered with their full legal name and, thus, that is how CBST has registered them per the information you provided during registration with the team. This means first name, middle initial, last name per birth certificate or subsequent legal name change document. Be sure to include this correct and complete information when entering any meets on your own. (Specifically, when adding your athlete in TM Lite include first name, middle initial, last name, birth date, sex, and then click "build ID.")
COMMUNICATIONS / MEETINGS:
Long Course 2016
Communications about long course were sent to all current team members on Monday. You either were 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 Jen Steinberg at firstname.lastname@example.org is February 22 (earlier, as always, is better).
The long course practice schedule will be the same schedule as last year (times and locations). To see last year's schedule, look at the team calendar for last long course (April-July 2015).
CBST Website Calendar
It has been brought to our attention that many families are not able to see the calendar displayed properly on their smartphones. When looking at the CBST Calendar, scroll to the bottom and there is a web/mobile option. Select the option that pertains to the device you are utilizing.
The date for senior swimmers is 1/16/2016. The meeting will be managed during practice time. Senior swimmers please keep track of what you eat for two or three days and email it to Kelly Jones (prior to the nutrition talk on the 16th) at Kelly.email@example.com .
College Swimming Meeting with Coach Stu (for parents):
Join coach Stu on Monday, January 25th at 6:30 p.m. in the classrooms by the pool (D204/D205) for a parents’ meeting to discuss swimming in college.
January bills were emailed last Friday. Note that NCAP team travel will be included in February bills for those swimmers who traveled to that meet with the coaches. Please get all outstanding amounts paid by January 25th.
Watch for a communication tomorrow about a CBST apparel order.
Have a great week!
