CASL is a group of eight summer league swim teams with over 1,000 swimmers from Central Arkansas. The teams are, as follows:
- Cabot Piranhas
- Conway Crocodiles
- Lakewood Waves
- Lonoke Sharkrockets
- Maumelle Marlins
- Otter Creek Otters
- Saline County Barracudas
For over 25 years, CASL has existed to promote friendly competition between our member teams, in a family atmosphere that promotes individual/team competition and sportsmanship. CASL is a 100% volunteer league. The success of the league depends on every family helping run their respective team and swim meets. Without you we cannot operate. If this is your first year in the league, we encourage you to meet with the Parent Representative of your team and seek opportunities to volunteer.
Dual swim meets are held on Saturday mornings from the first of June until mid-July of each season. Each swim meet will start promptly at 8:00A.M. However, swimmers are encouraged to arrive by 7:00A.M. for warm-ups. Check with your Parent Representative for the specific warm-up time for each meet. Unless delayed by weather, CASL rules mandate that swim meets end by 1:30P.M. A link to the current meet schedule may be found on the home page of the CASL website.
All swimmers are divided into Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum divisions in each event based on their best times. A link to the current time standards for each division may be found on the home page of the CASL website.
Returning swimmers will begin the season with their best time from the last season. The four division system allows more opportunities for personal achievement/recognition, and places swimmers in common groups for competition. By competing and improving their times at weekly dual meets, a swimmer can move up to a higher division (example: from Bronze to Silver). Team scores are kept at each dual meet, and a league champion is crowned each season at the Meet of Champs.
To qualify to swim an event at the Meet of Champs, a swimmer must have achieved a Silver, Gold, or Platinum time, or be ranked among the fastest eight Bronze swimmers in the league for that event. Only times achieved during the current season are eligible. A ranking of each of the divisions will be posted on the CASL website during the course of the season, so that a swimmer can chart their progress toward qualifying for the Meet of Champs.

Good luck this summer!
