April 9, 2021
Hello CG Gators Families,
Please see below for the latest swim team updates.
The 2021 swim season calendar is available here. The Swim Team Committee and coaching staff are planning for creative social opportunities and team-building activities throughout the season, both during and outside of practices. Fundraising opportunities, including dine-out nights and other events, may be added at a later date.
Designing practice schedules that maximize practice opportunities for our swimmers while still remaining socially-distant is a high priority. This will require both time and ingenuity. Practice times will be determined closer to the end of registration as we finalize the total number of swimmers for the season. Help us plan accordingly by registering for the 2021 summer season as early as possible at www.cggators.org.
To allow the coaching staff adequate planning, the registration deadline is April 11 at 11:59 p.m.
SWIMMER ASSESSMENTS - APRIL 16
Swimmer assessments will be held April 16 at 4 p.m. Assessments are used to check for swim team readiness and assign practice groups. Click here to register for an assessment time slot. If your swimmer participated in Spring Clinics, an assessment is not required.
TEAM ZOOM - APRIL 22
To kick off the 2021 CG Gators Swim season, a team Zoom session will be held April 22 at 7:30 p.m. This is your opportunity to meet the coaching staff and committee members, as well as discuss the 2021 season. Q&A will also be available. Zoom information will be emailed Monday, April 19 and will also be available on the website.
At this time, all meets will be held virtually. This means that each team will compete at their own pool and meet results will be compared digitally upon completion. If conditions change and both teams agree, in-person meets could be arranged. For now, plan for all meets to be virtual. We are also exploring the idea of potentially streaming some of the meets utilizing social media or Zoom formats.
Also, the swim team committee will determine if we will offer a team time trial (GREEN AND GOLD) before the league meets begin. Your opinion and feedback is greatly appreciated. Please share them with a committee member or Coach Denise as soon as possible.
COMMITTEE POSITIONS OPEN
The swim committee currently has two open seats - Fundraising Coordinator and Snack Bar Coordinator. This is a great opportunity for any current Cabana Club member interested in connecting with the CG community and swim families all while fulfilling 2021 Cabana Club volunteer hours (if applicable). The reduced event schedule allows for a bit less demand of your time while still helping out an organization you love! If interested, please contact any committee member.
