Coach Amy’s Comments:
Welcome and welcome back CGAC families! We are very excited to get back to the pool after a very successful 2017-2018 Short Course season, which ended with a 13th place finish at the Age Group State Championships and qualifying 6 swimmers for the Speedo Sectional Series. Congratulations to Gracie DeLuna, Tony Gipson and Vincent Valde on their awesome swims at the Sectional Swim Meet and to Raiden Finchum who achieved his Futures Cut while competing at the Sectional Meet! We have already hit the ground running with some great first day practices. Here are some other items that you need to know:
1.) Samantha's House Swim Meet: This is a meet for those swimmers 14 and under only and will be hosted at the University of Indianapolis. All proceeds from the meet will go to Samantha's House in hopes of funding a handicapped accessible van for a member of our community. If you missed the RSVP deadline and would still like your swimmer to participate, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2.) Rock the Block: We highly encourage all of our families to participate in this community event where the top 3 participant groups can earn money for their programs. Yes, this is the same day as the Samantha's House Meet, but will be held in the morning, with plenty of time for swimmers who choose to participate in both to get to the pool. Senior Team swimmers: We have CANCELLED PRACTICE on Saturday, April 21st so that you may participate in the run (hint hint :) ). More information about Rock the Block can be found below.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask your swimmer's coach. Thank you and see you at the pool!
Rock the Block Run – Tomorrow is the last day to guarantee a RTBR t-shirt with registration.

Billing – Long Course training fees were billed for the month of April. You will see an increase in fees if your swimmer moved up in training groups. Also, if your swimmer is not swimming long course, please email CGAC Treasurer Erin Graybeal at email@example.com ASAP!
