The Captains' Summer Exchange (CSE) is a text exchange founded by Adi1008, birdylayaduck08, and SOnerd while they were captains in the summer before the 2017-2018 competition season. Captains from schools submit two tests for different events during the summer (usually starting in mid-June) that undergo an approval/revision process, similar to those of SSSS and Captains Tryouts. In exchange for writing two tests, the school receives access to the folder of all approved tests. After the new year, tests from CSE are generally shared publicly.

Purpose

Although similar to SSSS and Captains Tryouts in theory, this exchange is not meant to replace either of them. Although SSSS takes place during the summer, anyone can submit tests or notes, making its tests unsuitable for tryouts. Likewise, while Captains Tryouts restricts participation to only verified captains, it takes place too late for many teams' early tryouts. CSE aims to fill a niche for an exchange that can provide tryout-grade tests during the summer for captains to use.
