PLEASE remember from our last email on Monday the following :
In our league there are two individual Championship meets (CBST-SAL swimmers need to sign-up - like an invitational). For your swimmer to participate in EITHER A or B Champs you must enter them in the Portal TODAY:
Division Championships – commonly referred to as “B Champs” (for ANY swimmer in the division) and
League Championships – commonly referred to as “A champs” (Swimmers MUST qualify for this meet - the top 18 swimmers in the league in each event). Please see top times list on SAL Website.
A swimmer may compete in no more than 3 individual and 2 relay events (5 events) at individual Championships

The meet Informational flyer for division champs can be accessed on the champs page of the league website (we are the Central division) or through this link: https://suburbanaquatic.org/Champs1920/centraldivisionchampsflyer.pdf.
The League "A" champs flyer and final details are available on the Suburban Aquatic League Website under the Championships Tab at the top right of the Home Page. Any further details will likely be passed along after the seed meeting on January 19, 2020.
CBST-SAL swimmers need to register for the individual champs meets before the seed meeting so that our coaches know what each swimmer wants to swim (especially if they have qualified for As in more than 3 individual events). If you want to swim relays at champs you must indicate such during the registration process as described in the email sent out on Monday.
A note regarding League TOP TIMES and PSYCH SHEETS from CB Aquatics Staff:
Top times lists are posted periodically by the league (see Meet Information – Top Times on the league website). These lists are produced from all swims in meets within the league (dual meets and invitationals) to date during the season. As these lists include all swims, there are times for swimmers in events that are not the “typical” events for their age group (for example, an 11 year old may swim up in the 14 and under 100 backstroke so be listed on the top times list for 11/12 100 backstroke, but the typical event for the 11/12 group in backstroke is a 50). These events are listed on the reports due to how the reports must be generated and because people are interested in the information, however, these “non-typical” events are not relevant for the individual championship meets as they are not available events for those meets. See the league website (League Information – League Documents) for the SAL Operating Procedures. In that document, the last page is an Appendix listing the available events at league (A) and division (B) champs which are the events available in our team portal for champs registration.
The psych sheets (one for boys and one for girls) for champs are specific to the league champs meet and list all swims for only the champs events. This is the document to which swimmers should refer to get an idea of whether they might qualify for league champs. Again, the top 18 swimmers (plus two alternates) in each event qualify for league champs. At the seed meeting there will be some scratches so a few swimmers beyond the 20th position may get in to a particular event. Psych sheets based on initial champs entry submissions are posted on the league website (Championships page).
