CGAC Swim Lesson Program: The CGAC Swim Lesson Program offers private swim lessons for individuals of all ages out of diapers and up.  USA Swimming Certified Instructors provide beginning instruction for the non-swimmer, as well as limited stroke training for the novice swimmers.

CGAC Sharks and Minnows: The CGAC Sharks and Minnows Program is a pre-competitive swim team that introduces swimmers to skills and stroke mechanics for competitive swimming development. Sharks and Minnows runs from November through December and May through the June at Center Grove High School Pool (Additional winter sessions may be added as needed). 

CGAC Age Group and Senior Teams:  The CGAC Age Group and Senior Program is a competitive swim team that operates year round at Center Grove High School Natatorium. The team is divided into two large age group brackets, 5 year olds to eighth grade (age group), followed by high school and college age (senior team).  Placement into groups is achieved through coach evaluation during a try-out and subsequent trial period.  Each group is designed to benefit swimmers who are grouped together by ability. The frequency, duration, and training intensity of practices define each group. Within each of these groups there are groups designed to match desire and ability level.
