Coach Amy’s Comments:
1.) PIKE Closed Invite: Great job to the CGAC swimmers who participated in the Pike Closed Invite over the weekend! There were some fast swims and some great races. The coaches are very excited about where the team is at the mid-season point, and are looking forward to the second half of the season. Congratulations to Pre-Senior 2 swimmer, Justin Xia, on achieving his first Age Group State Cut in the 200 Breast!
2.) ChaseStrong Meet: The RSVP for the ChaseStrong meet that will be held January 5-7th at Indian Creek High School has been extended to 5:00pm on December 18. If you are unable to RSVP through the website, please email me at AGcoach@cgacswim.org with the subject "ChaseStrong." I highly encourage all Pre-Senior swimmers to participate in the ChaseStrong Challenge on that Friday night, where they will swim both the 400 IM and the 200 Butterfly. In the past, participants who completed the challenge without any disqualifications, received a t-shirt.
3.) Christmas Break practices: All age group teams will continue to practice at their regularly scheduled times over the winter break. (The High School Schedule has been posted at the pool.) Days off will be:
Saturday, December 23
Monday, December 25
Monday, January 1
**If there are any group specific changes or updates, you will receive an email from your swimmers coach***
