Updates and reminders for this week:
- The next modified age group practice night at CB East is 1/28/2016. Please check the calendar for exact times for each group.
- No age group practice on 1/29/2016 and 2/1/2016 due to the high school swim team schedules.
In the event of inclement weather, please check either the Home Page or the Calendar Page on the CBST website to get the latest update on practice changes or cancellations. We will try to send emails and social media notifications but are not always in a position to do that and website changes will be made sooner than any email could go out.
At this time we hope tomorrow's practices will be on but please do check for information before leaving for practice as weather may be an issue.

Long Course 2016
Communications about long course were sent to all current team members last week. 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).
Long course is scheduled to begin on April 11. 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).
Spring Apparel Sale
Per yesterday’s email, CBST is holding a Spring Apparel sale via Kampus Klothes. Please utilize the link below if you are interested in purchasing apparel during this sale. The sale will be open through Friday, January 29, 2016 and it will be the only opportunity to purchase CBST apparel via this vendor for the rest of our Short Course season.

Our Spring sale can also be accessed under the Kampus Klothes website at www.kampusklothes.com - click on the "Online Team Sales" Tab and then find the CBST store from there to open it. If you have any questions, please contact Julie Kline at email@example.com. Thank you!
