Coach Amy’s Comments:
Hello CGAC families! Here are some things that you will need to know for this upcoming week:
1.) NO PRACTICE TODAY (CG site): There will be NO PRACTICE TODAY, December 11th, at the CG site due to a home high school meet. Come out and watch your Trojan Swimmers and Divers take on Avon at 6:00!
2.) ICAC Meet Entry: The RSVP has closed for this meet and we cannot add any swimmers at this time. Initial entries will be sent out this week. Please review and send corrections in by Monday, December 17th at 4pm.
3.) Winter Break Schedules: A general winter break schedule was sent out on Monday. Please see your swimmer's coach if you have any questions.
4.) CGAC SuperBowl Splash: The RSVP is now open and the meet packet will be made available once it has been approved by IN Swimming. Please be sure to RSVP! This meet is run in a prelim/final format (Top 16 swimmers ages 11 and older qualify to swim finals in the evening), which is the same format as the March Championship meets.
5.) Coach Amy's Leave: I will be on maternity leave beginning today. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact one of our awesome board members or your swimmer's coaches. You can find their email addresses on our website. I will be back before you know it and will be watching times on Meet Mobile for the ICAC meet :)
I also want to thank all of the swimmers and their families for taking the time to host a shower for baby Spencer! Thanks is not enough to express how blessed I feel to be a part of such an amazing swim family. Thank you again for all of the kind words, well wishes, and gifts. I cannot wait for baby Spencer to meet you all!
SuperBowl Splash: In the next two weeks, we will be looking for people to start filing our trained position volunteer spots. If you are trained and want to volunteer as announcer, timing console, starting block marshal, or head timer, please let us know which days you will be available. If you are interested in training for a trained job, please email our Meet Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org All other spots will open up for volunteers to sign up in early January.
Amazon Smile to Support CGAC: AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice. On your first visit to AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), you are prompted to select a charitable organization from a list of eligible organizations. Please select Center Grove Aquatic Club. Then shop as you normally do. There is no cost to you and proceeds will help our club. Tell your family and other swim fans to support CGAC too.
