Champ Series Information
Champ and reserve invitations have been sent! If your swimmer qualified for champ or reserve, you’ll be able to declare them in your parent portal. Swimmers must have competed in 2 meets this season to qualify. PLEASE declare your swimmer as attending or not so the coaches know who will be available to seed relays.
Both meets will be held this weekend at the Matthew T. Doyle Natatorium , 1900 5th Ave N, Texas City, TX 77590.
The Reserve meet will be held Saturday, July 6 and the Champ meet will be held on Sunday, July 7. CCSL has strict guidelines regarding the timeframe of these meets. If your swimmer is late to circle in or check in with Coaches, they will be scratched – no exceptions. Please note the timeline:

If your swimmer has a reserve time, they may swim in the reserve meet to try to make a Champ time. Swimmers may only compete in 3 individual events over the weekend. If they have a champ time already, they may not swim that event on Saturday.
New this year – call ups. The top swimmers in the reserve meet, even if they don’t make a Champ time, may still be called up to compete on Sunday in the Champ meet.
If your swimmer is attending the Reserve Meet , you will need to sign up to volunteer for the Reserve Meet on Saturday. We are required to send one volunteer to help set up at the pool in Texas City on Friday evening; the Set Up Volunteer Job listed for the Reserved Meet is for Friday night.
If your swimmer is attending the Champs Meet, you will need to sign up to volunteer for the Champs Meet on Sunday.
If your swimmer(s) are attending both the Reserve and Champs Meets, you will need to sign up for a volunteer shift at both meets.
All of our volunteer jobs for the Reserve and Champs Meets are assigned by CCSL, and they are subject to change. Please be flexible if we are asked to make last minute changes to our volunteer schedule. We will need everyone’s help to fill our required shifts, including the shifts at the end of the meet. If you sign up as a floater or do not sign up for a volunteer shift, be prepared to work any uncovered job and/or to help relieve volunteers who are working in positions away from the pool.
The meet is an indoor meet with indoor setup. Each team is given a set area in the gymnasium to set up. Please pack compactly for this meet. Rolling coolers are not allowed. Chairs must be on a blanket or tarp, not directly on the gym floors. There is NO setup in the bleachers. Bleachers are for active spectators only.
Concessions as well as t-shirts and programs will be available for purchase .
Practices will be held at the Silverlake pool this week on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday.
