New Info

From Coach Amy:

Hello swim family and welcome back CGAC swimmers! 

We are coming off a very successful short course season where both the Age Group and Senior Teams placed in the top 20 at their respective state meets. We also had 13 swimmers qualify for the first level of national meets, Speedo Sectional (10 meet participants) and 3 swimmers qualify for the next level for the USA Swimming Futures meet to be held in Greensboro, NC in August.  We also saw our satellite teams in Mooresville, led by coach Kevin Trammell and the UINDY site, led by coach Jason Hite, have  tremendous growth.  The CGAC coaches are looking forward to continuing to build off of the successes of the previous season and making this long course season the best we have ever seen! 

Please be sure to read our Tuesday weekly newsletter email in its entirety as it will contain information regarding upcoming meets, important practice information, volunteer opportunities, and much more. You will also be able to find the weekly newsletter on our websites homepage CGAC  under Latest News.

Here are some things that you will need to know for this week: 

1.) Fishers FAST 500: RSVP for the Fishers FAST 500 is due by 8am April 15th CLICK HERE . This meet is open to all swimmers Red Team and above and White Team swimmers who have previous long course experience. Please see your swimmers coach if you have questions. 

2.) Saturday Practices (CG Site): There will be NO PRACTICE this Saturday, April 13th for any group at the CG site. Saturday practices will begin on April 20th. 

3.) CG, UINDY, MOORESVILLE Combo Practice: The Senior Teams for all 3 sites will be having a whole group practice at the CG site from 7am-9am  on Saturday, April 20th. This will be a great opportunity for all 3 sites to get together and train as a whole team!

Ongoing Updates & Reminders

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

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. 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!!!

Officials Clinic: Do you have an interest in becoming an official? Our sport needs officials to ensure fairness and to make sure meets run efficiently. It's a great way to learn more about the sport and is an exciting and rewarding way to participate with your athlete.

Another bonus to becoming an official is all of your volunteer credits will be satisfied by officiating at meets. So no waiting to sign up for volunteer jobs online, best view of your swimmers during the meets and not as hot as sitting in the stands.

Tuesday, April 23, 2019, 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm. Columbus North H.S. 1400 25th St.

RSVP:  Greg Ward - greg@gtaward.com
