CCS will be hosting the All-Star meet against San Diego Imperial Swimming and Sierra Nevada Swimming. Current plans are to host the meet in Bakersfield. Travel arrangements will be forth coming. All swimmers selected to the team will be expected to make some joint practices in December (over the holiday break, at a central location to be determined). Participation at the Clovis meet in early January will also be highly encouraged.
This year the all-star selection process will be the same as last year. Instead of selecting the all-star participants based on their individual performances from a single all-star selection meet, swimmers will be selected based on best times achieved at a variety of meets. Times must be achieved during the period from September 1, 2012 through December 15, 2013.
Beginning in September, applications of intent to participate on the All-Star team will be made available. Applications are accessible on the CCS website as well as at each CCS meet. Swimmers will be able to turn letters in throughout the fall, but no later than December 8. Swimmers will submit intent along with current “best” times. The final deadline to make a “best” time will be no later than December 15. From the final “best” times, teams of eight for each gender/age group will be selected using a ranking system. CCS All-Star coaches will be able to verify times swam within CCS, but it will be the parent’s responsibility to present notification of new times swam outside of CCS to the Age Group Vice-Chair. The team will be announced the week of December 15, 2013.
