Time Trials: Saturday, October 20th
Time Trials are setup to be a practice meet for our swimmers, they will swim the four strokes as well as have the opportunity to swim the IM. The times will be used as a base time for the coaches to use for meet lineups. Times acquired at times trials cannot be used as qualifying times for championship meets at the end of the season. Volunteers are needed at time trials, this is a great time to learn the volunteer positions. Volunteer assignments will be communicated via email the Thursday or Friday prior to time trials. Meet check-in on the portal by 9:00pm Wednesday 10/17. Please check-in/out.
Dual Meets: Saturdays November-January
Dual meets are scheduled between the other teams in our league starting on Saturday 11/3. There are five dual meets in November and December against teams in our division (Central). In January, there will be two dual meets; conference dual finals and league dual finals. Our opponents for the two January meets are not determined until the week prior to the meet. In order to swim in the two January dual meets SWIMMERS MUST SWIM IN AT LEAST 2 OUT OF THE 5 NOVEMBER/DECEMBER MEETS. Meet check-in for the seven dual meets will take place on the portal, under the SAL meets tab. Check-in deadline is 9:00pm the Wednesday prior to the meet.
Championship Meets: Division(B) and League(A) Champs end of January/early February
There are two championship meets at the end of the season. League (A) champs is a time qualifying meet where the top 18 swimmers in each event compete. Keep in mind there are 24 teams in our league so qualifying for this meet is quite an accomplishment. Division (B) champs is for all swimmers who have not qualified for A champs. Swimmers pick the events they want to swim and coaches will also put together relays. B Champs for our division will be held at Upper Dublin on Saturday, 1/26.
Invitational Meets: Optional Meets
Several teams in the league host invitational meets throughout the season. These meets are optional and swimmers choose the events they want to swim and you pay for each event that you sign up for. Registration for invitationals is through the portal. You must signup by the deadline and also payment must be received by the deadline. Please place your payment in the CBST-SAL mailbox located at the base of the balcony steps at CB South or in the CBST-SAL mailbox located at the base of the balcony steps at CB East. CBST-SAL also hosts an invitational and we ask that all of our swimmers ages 14 and under participate. This is our teams’ fundraiser and it is a really fun event, it is scheduled for Sunday December 2nd.
Our meets cannot take place without volunteers. If your swimmer is attending a dual meet you will most likely be assigned a volunteer position. If your swimmer is attending a meet, however, you are not available to volunteer at the meet, please email your rep no later than the Tuesday prior to the meet.
