Coach Amy’s Comments:
Hello CGAC families! Here are the things you need to know for the week of July 2, 2018:
1.) Excel Firecracker Invite: I want to congratulate all of our swimmers who participated in the team travel meet to TN last week. It was a great time and there were a lot of fast swims. Congratulations to Gabe Argiris, Molly Stiles, Lara Phipps, Ellie Nguyen, Jonah Brandon, Anthony Cuadros, Henry Lyness, and Brady Ferguson for earning new LC state cuts, and to Tony Gipson for earning his Speedo Sectional Cut. A HUGE thank you to our activities coordinator, Crystal Crist, for organizing and setting-up our team dinners!
2.) Pre-Senior Evening Practice July 12 – Due to a newly scheduled event at the Natatorium July 12, there will NOT be Pre-Senior practice at the Natatorium in the evening as previously scheduled. Instead, Pre-Senior practice will be at CGHS at normal times that afternoon.
3.) SEY Summer Splash: Final entries will be sent out Wednesday. I am waiting to hear if they will accept updated times.
4.) CGAC 12&Under Meet: The RSVP period has closed. However, since this is a home hosted meet, we can still add your swimmer. Please let your coach know by 5pm Thursday if you would like your swimmer added to this meet. *Swimmers must be 12 years or younger in order to participate in events. ALL SWIMMERS and their FAMILIES are invited to enjoy the food trucks and fireworks!
5.) Practice Schedules: July is a hectic time with holidays and some of our staff returning to their full time jobs. Please watch your emails and the Facebook page for practice updates. These updates will override the posted schedule if there is a difference. Reminder: NO AGE GROUP Practices JULY 4th.
If you have any questions, please see your swimmer's coach. Have a fun and safe holiday week and see you at the pool!
Stars & Stripes Meet: Thank you to everyone who has signed up to work the meet! Sign-ups have been locked down. If you need to make changes, please email me ASAP. There are a couple of spots still available. If you are still wanting to work, email me and we will find you a spot. Warm-ups for the meet are at 4:30 and meet starts at 5:45. Please check the times for your jobs. Some of them are early because of the need to direct families and swimmers where to go since we will likely be using Door 6 as our main entrance.
If you are unable to work the meet, you may purchase a $30 WALMART gift card to fulfill your requirement. Please write your name on it and put it in the payment box by Thursday 7/13. I will add your credit when I receive the gift card. Families that do not fulfill their requirement, will be charged $60 volunteer fee. If you have any questions about volunteer credits, please email Kim Ferguson at firstname.lastname@example.org
