Coach Amy’s Comments:
1.) 2018 SE Divisional Championships: Wow, what a weekend for our swimmers! CGAC took the SE Divisional Championships by storm, racking up second swims, medals and new cuts along the way. Congratulations to the following swimmers for earning individual state times: Henry Lyness, Conner Conkin, Devin Trammell, Jackson Lee, Gracie Marsh, Isaac Lewis, Vincent Howe, Anthony Cuadros and Max Hite! We are very proud of all of our swimmers who competed this weekend. Great job!
2.) Practices: At this time, the only swimmers who should be practicing are those swimmers who have achieved State (age group or senior) time standards or higher, including relay swimmers and alternates. Practice times will remain the same unless otherwise noted by your coach.
3a.) Long Course Season: Long course season will begin on Monday, April 9th, using our current practice time schedule. Emails will be sent out the week prior to the start of the season with further details and group information if your swimmer will be changing groups.
3b) Current 8th Grade Club Swimmers: All current 8th grade swimmers will be moved up to the Senior Team for the 2018 Long Course season. This way, they can be introduced to the dryland/weight training and practice schedule prior to starting high school. Morning practices run Monday-Friday 6-7am (we allow them to get out early to get ready), Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 3-5PM, and Saturdays 7am-9am. More details will be sent out prior to spring break.
Please let your coach know if you have any questions. Thank you and see you at the pool!
