3.) State:  Good luck to our State qualifying swimmers this weekend!  The final entries and meet packet have been emailed out.  Swim fast CGAC!

4.) Billing:  All short course swimmers are automatically enrolled for long course season.  Please email Erin Greybeal at billing@cgacswim.org if your swimmer is NOT planning to swim long course.

5.) Long Course Season: Long course season will begin on April 8th. Emails will be sent out prior to the start of the season with further details and group information if your swimmer will be changing groups.  Spread the word to friends and family that new swimmer evaluations will take place Wednesday April 3 and Thursday April 4 from 5:30-7:00 pm at CGHS.  Returning swimmers do not have to be evaluated.

6.) Rock the Block: Although CGAC is now qualified to compete for grant money (thank you to those that signed up), we STILL need your support by signing up to walk/run the 5K/10K/Kids Run on April 27th at 8:30 am at CGHS.  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!  The more people we have sign-up, the more likely our club will win BIG money!!!  The top 3 non-profit groups with the most participants win grant money.  Let’s do this CGAC!!!

7.) From Meet Coordinators:

Many thanks to all the volunteers who helped at the Divisionals meet.  We are truly grateful for your help!  Don’t forget that we are also supplying timers for the Speedo Sectional Meet on Sunday, March 31st.  There are several CGAC swimmers that are competing in this meet that you may be able to watch.  We need 16 timers for prelim (8:30 arrival) and 16 timers for finals (4:00 arrival).  Signups are now open on our website to see if we can get enough people signed up before we make the commitment.  Please contact Holly meetcoordinator@cgacswim.org with questions.
