Meet Tips and Tricks
 
CNS encourages all swimmers to show off their hard work by participating in swim meets! A schedule of meets can be found on the CNS calendar. Coach Long will send out information about each meet and a link where to sign up prior to the event. If you have questions concerning what event your athlete should swim, feel free to contact the coaching staff for guidance. 
 
Swim meets are a great way to connect with other families on the team! Look for CNS apparel when you are finding your seat and be sure to cheer on all Narwhals!
