2017 SWAGR Time Standards
Central California and Sierra Nevada Swimming are again sponsoring the South Western Age Group Regional (SWAGR) Meet. CCS hosted the meet in 2016, and this year Sierra Nevada Swimming will be hosting the meet on March 16-19, 2017 in Roseville, California. The meet is currently being sanctioned and as soon as it is, and the meet information sheet is available, it will be published on this website.
In the mean time, put the meet on your team calendars. The entry time standards are available thru the link at the top of this column
USA Swimming at the 2016 USAS Convention passed a new rule mandating that Deck Pass be accepted at all USA Swimming sanctioned competitions as proof of membership and certification. As such CCS has decided to no longer print and mail non-athlete membership cards. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Jim Patterson (contact info available thru the Contact CCS link to the right).

CCS Swimmers Compete in Japan
2013 SC JO Champions
The CA/NV Section sent an all-star team to compete against a Japanese all-star team in Japan. CCS had four swimmers on that all-star team: Jorie Caneta and Brock Bonetti from Roadrunner Aquatics, Chris Nolan from Tule Nation Tritons and Justin Wright from the Fresno Dolphin Swim Team. All had a great time, although driving on the left side of the road was weird, and Japanese food is very different from what they were used to and took some time getting used to.
Justin Wright was selected Swimmer of the Meet for the Americans. Justin was very surprised at this award because he thought there were other swimmers who had generally performed better over many events. However, the selection of swimmers for this honor (one for each team) was based on the single best performance in an event based on power points. Justin won the honor for his performance in the 200 Fly, a swim he isn't sure from where it came. The Japanese swimmer who raced him in that same event one the award for the Japanese team.
So welcome home Brock, Jorie, Chris and Justin. And congratulations for representing CCS in the first of this exciting new meet.
