Team Picture Day & Annual Easter Egg Hunt
Join CSC for a hopping good time on Saturday, March 31 at Madison Pool! Come to the pool by 9am wearing your Blue or White CSC Team shirt and be part of the team photo. Swim practice will immediately follow, while the Easter Bunny & her team hide treats for swimmers to find after practice – this activity is only for swimmers who have attended practice at Madison that day.
Swimmers should bring their own basket or bag to collect the eggs they find, then empty out all the treats from the eggs when finished and leave the plastic eggs in the appropriate container at the pool, please.

The AG I hunt will start around 11:40am, and the AG II and AG III hunt will start around 11:00am.
These are not exact start times for the hunt – coaches will decide when the swimmers can get out of the water. See the “From The Deck” section below for more details.

If swimmers need a team shirt, shirts will be available for purchase at Madison Pool on Saturday morning before the team photo is taken.

Volunteer Requirements for Upcoming Champs Meets
As part of CSC’s participation at upcoming champs meets at KCAC (Senior Sectionals and AG Regionals), families with participating swimmers are required to take a timing shift (or officiating shift, if a qualified deck official) on deck during the meet. Look for an announcement coming soon about the specific timing shifts needed for these meets. These shifts count toward your family’s workshare requirement.

Swimming Photos Still Needed
The CSC Spring Banquet is May 12, and we still need fun photos of swimmers during the season to make the video slideshow review of the year’s events. As you collect photos and videos of your swimmers at upcoming meets, please consider submitting them for use in the slideshow. When you have photos ready, get in touch with one of our meet directors, Kai Andrews ( or 206-276-3155), and he’ll send a link you can upload to.
