Coach Amy’s Comments:
1.) Thank You – Many thanks to Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon, Dr. Cameron Conkin and his family for sponsoring the purchase of new CGAC volunteer shirts to be worn by our home meet volunteers. We truly appreciate your sponsorship!
2.) SEY Summer Splash: Entries for the SEY Summer Splash have been finalized. A psych sheet for Friday night was sent out on Monday (7/9) with event limitations. It is going to be a HOT one this weekend! Please be sure to have your swimmers pack extra water and sunscreen. The team will have a tent set up for the swimmers to camp in on deck as well. Please note that this meet is a prelim/final format for swimmers ages 11 and older. If a swimmer qualifies top 16 in an event, they are expected to compete in finals, unless discussed with the coach prior to the start of the meet. Those swimmers attempting to achieve new STATE or DIVISIONAL Cuts may opt to wear their racing suits. Shirt colors for the weekend are: Friday-Black, Saturday- Red, Sunday- White or Gray.

4.) Championship Meets: Initial emails will be going out in the coming weeks for the summer Championship Meets (Age Group & Senior State and Divisionals) to those swimmers who have achieved qualifying time standards.

We also have Making Waves coming which is a new company that will be selling swim equipment. We will have a watch and go area at the end of the pool. This is for people who are camping in the hallway and want to come in just to watch their swimmer's heat. We will NOT be live streaming the scoreboard for this meet, but will have people announcing first calls in the Hall of Excellence which is also where swimmers will be camping. Warm ups are at 4:30 and the meet starts at 5:45. Swimmers will sign in with coaches.
