Hi all,
Although the Summer Splash Social was originally planned for this Saturday evening we are postponing it due to low sign up rates. The event will be rescheduled for a date in early August.

Thank you!

Hello CS&T Members-

On Monday, we will be hosting dive Championships here at CS&T.

This week, the shallow end will be open from 10 on because lessons have ended. The rest of the pool will be open at 11:15.

On Monday, however, the pool will close at 1pm so that the divers will be able to concentrate on their dives. The pool will reopen when the meet ends (approx. 6pm).

We are also required to allow divers from other clubs to practice using our diving board. Therefore, the diving well will be closed Saturday from 2-4 after our Home Meet, and Sunday from 10-1. The rest of the pool is open throughout this time.

We are sorry for this inconvenience, but look forward to our divers doing their very best at Championships this season!

Thanks,
Jen McGlauflin
Aquatics Director

As you know the 2014 Wiffle Ball Tournament is fast approaching. Play begins on Monday July 21st! I have emailed out the roster for parents to look over and make sure that the t-shirt sizes are correct and that their children's names are on the list. I will be making the teams on Friday as well as ordering the shirts.

The cost for shirts, equipment, etc. is $15 per person, preferably by check made out to Chelmsford Swim and Tennis Club. You may drop the checks off at the greeter desk and all checks are due by July 18th.

A quick reminder that this tournament is open to any child ages 5 and older. The purpose of the tournament is to have fun as well as practice good sportsmanship. Everyone who signs up for the tournament is expected to play fair and be a good sport.

If there are any questions at all, please feel free to email me at cutterjosh@comcast.net

Unfortunately, neither Wedgewood (Girls A1) nor Russell Mill (Girls A) is able to field a team to play against us tomorrow. The Girls A1 match at Wedgewood has been rescheduled for July 11. We have confirmation from both Russell Mill and Sudbury Swim and Tennis that they will have enough boys for us to play tomorrow, so the boys matches will go on as scheduled.

Thanks to those who played in our 8 and under round robin on Monday, 10 and under round robin yesterday, and 12 and 14 and under matches today. We appreciate everyone's hard work!

Thanks,
The Tennis Staff

We would like to congratulate the divers for their awesome performance yesterday, tieing us up going into the Westford meet.

Here is some more information about diving going forward through the season:

Tomorrow (6/30) There will be a dive meet at Wayland. All divers are encouraged to attend. Warm ups for 12 and unders begin at 12 and the meet will start at 1 followed by the 13 and unders. The complete Monday dive meet schedule can be found on our website or at the greeter desk. Also starting Tuesday (7/1) we will be dividing the practice into a half hour practice for our beginning divers and a 45 min practice for returning divers. The divers will be notified on Tuesday which practice they should attend for the rest of the season either 12-12:30 or 12:30-1:15. We are so excited to see how all of the divers do the rest of the season and are extremely proud of their performance against Westford!
