All-Star Team Information
  1. For the annual CCS All-Star Team, eight females and eight males will be selected in each age group by the CCS All-Star coaching staff. A minimum of six swimmers in each gender/age group will be selected strictly by lowest point totals based on place in their top six events at the All-Star Selection Meet. Only events contested at the All-Star Meet will be considered. In case of a tie for sixth place, the swimmer with the lowest points in their best event will have priority. If they are still tied, then the top two events will be scored. If they remain tied, both swimmers will be selected and one wild card will be selected as below. If three swimmers are tied for sixth, selection will proceed as above and if they remain tied, no wild cards will be selected. If greater than three swimmers remain tied, selection will be by consensus vote of the All-Star coaching staff. In a limited number of cases, senior level CCS athletes will be considered for the All-Star Team based on results from out-of-area competitions. These swimmers must submit a signed letter of intent to participate on the All-Star Team by the deadline for the All-Star Q meet. Two swimmers in each gender/age group may be selected as "wild cards" by a consensus vote of the CCS All-Star coaching staff.
  2. The coaching staff will be selected by the head coach who is appointed by the Age Group Vice-Chair.
  3. Ten and under swimmers will be encouraged to travel with the team, but may travel with a parent or other designated adult.
  4. For out of LSC meets, all team members, except ten and under swimmers who are traveling with a parent or other adult, shall travel and be housed together as a team, under coach and chaperone supervision and be bound by team rules and the CCS Code of Conduct.
  5. Travel to meets within the LSC will be determined based on the location of the meet.
