Coach Amy’s Comments:
1.) NO PRACTICE WEDNESDAY- Happy Valentine's Day! Come out and support the future stars of CGHS swimming and diving as they take on Franklin Central at 6pm. Good luck CGAC swimmers!
2.) THT Meet: Meet information is available on the team website, as well as the club Facebook page. Please contact your coach if you have any questions. This is a prelim/final format (just like the Super Bowl Splash). Swimmers who are trying for new cuts should discuss with their coach about when and if they should wear a tech/racing suit. Team shirts for the weekend: Friday- Black, Saturday-Red, Sunday-Gray/white
3.) ICAC Meet- Entries will be sent out by this weekend. Please let your swimmer's coach know of any changes ASAP.
4.) High School Sectionals - Good Luck to the CGHS Men's Swimmers and Divers this Thursday (5:30 Swim Prelims) and Saturday (9:00 Dive/1:00 Swim Finals) at Franklin as they begin the road to State at the IHSAA Sectional tournament on Thursday and Saturday!
Have a great week and see you at the pool!

We must have 15 more runners/walkers and 3 more volunteers registered by 2/28 to be eligible for the minimum amount of grant money. Register now at www.RockTheBlockRun.org for Early Registration pricing. Don’t forget to select Center Grove Aquatic Club as the charity you are supporting!
Swim Lesson Registration: Online registration opens this Monday, February 19 for Spring Swim Lessons. Tell your friends and family that might be interested! Please see the website for details.
Long Course Opt-Out Option: ALL current club swimmers are assumed to be participating in Long Course season (April-August) unless you email Chris Cuadros at firstname.lastname@example.org by February 26. We use the projected swimmer counts to budget and estimate coaching staff needs for the summer. It is important for us to have accurate counts in March so our long course swimmers have the best experience. Therefore, please contact Chris Cuadros ASAP if your swimmer will opt out of the upcoming long course season.
