CAST news

About once a week (sometimes a little longer) Jen Davies and I (coach Dave) meet to discuss information to be sent out to the team. Here's the news from 9-1-17:

Hi All,

Hope you all had a wonderful summer, the kiddos are back at school (or almost in our case) and everyone is ready for a fast swimming short course season.

Your news:

  • The "News" tab on the CAST website is now being used and utilized regularly. Please check it often.

Team Events (meets and other)

  • CAST annual Awards Banquet

    • Kroc Banquet Hall
    • 4-7ish
    • More details and event to be posted to CAST website event page soon
  • The goal this season is that swimmers are to participate in 1 meet per month. Some exceptions will be made and therefore 2 meets may occur for a handful of swimmers. This is to be determined and discussed with the coaches.
  • Please read the meet descriptions.
    • Some meets (Like Turkey Classic) depending on session times may allow swimmers to come later to the meet and therefore not require hotel stays.
  • Please stay on top of the meet commitments tab. Some meet have the attend/decline tab added at this point while other meets will have that option later. 
    • In the past all tabs were put up early and people forgot about committing early and therefore were added to the meet, and then billed for the meet. In some cases families forgot about committing early on and later had conflicts with attending said meet.
    • In these emails I will include commitment deadlines but please stay on top of it and decline early if you know they cannot attend.
