CBST-USAS NEW MEMBER REGISTRATION
LONG COURSE SEASON
You are a new CBST-USAS member if you were not a CBST-USAS participant during the 2018-2019 Short Course Season.All potential new members must be evaluated for team readiness and practice group placement.Please note that some practice groups may be full.All registrations are subject to availability of space within practice groups as determined by evaluation.Evaluations are by appointment and are scheduled during late December and in early/mid-January.Evaluations must be completed for all new members including CBST-SAL members.Does my child need to be fast to qualify for the team? No, we consider a swimmer's ability to do all four stokes legally more important than speed. However, swimmers need to have the endurance to complete a practice and the ability to keep up with the practice sets. Increased speed will come with time.There will be an informational meeting on January 8, 2019. If you are interested in attending, please contact Jennifer Steinberg at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.Please contact Jen Steinberg at email@example.com to schedule an evaluation no later than January 19th.
