Meet Location - Franklin & Marshall College, Lancaster, PA
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 Heather Yim 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 Heather Yim 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).
The meet information, meet entries, psych sheet and timeline for Senior Champs are posted on the CBST website. At the bottom of this message is Coach Stu's Senior Champs itinerary. Please read through this information in advance of arriving, so that your athlete(s) are prepared for the meet. If we receive updates, regarding Senior Champs, we will forward the information along. Please continue to refer to the Middle Atlantic website for the latest updates regarding this weekend's Senior Champs meet. The link to the site can be found here www.maswim.org.
CBST Senior Champs Volunteer Assignments
Thank you once again in advance for helping to make Senior Champs successful! Below are the assigned volunteer slots for Central Bucks Swim Team. We are asking that two families split each assigned session. If your swimmer is participating in the 400 IM and/or the 500 Free they need to provide their own timer for their race. In most cases, Championship meets will not begin if teams do not fulfill their volunteer responsibilities. Please keep this in mind and do not force coaches to come find you. Their efforts should be focused solely on the swimmers this weekend. If you are unable to fulfill your volunteer assignment, please find someone else during your session to switch with. Thanks again!
**Volunteers (both 1st and 2nd half) should check in at the volunteer check-in table when they arrive.
Timer Lane 1 - Brandbergh (events 3-5)/Devaney (events 6-8)
Timer Lane 3 - Whalen (events 13-16)/Patti (events 17-20)
Timer Lane 4 - Riegel (events 27-29)/Mislan (events 30-32)
