New Info

From Coach Amy:

1.) Fishers FAST 500 entry: The FINAL FAST 500 entry will be sent on Thursday, May 9th. At that time I will not be able to make any changes. 

2.) SSC Summer Sizzler:  The RSVP for the SSC Summer Sizzler is now closed. I cannot add any additional swimmers at this time. Initial entries will be sent out shortly for your review. 

3.)Hydration/Dryland:  As temperatures start to go up, it is important for your swimmer to stay hydrated! Please make sure that they bring a water bottle or a sports drink (ie. Gatorade or Powerade). Please no carbonated drinks, energy drinks, teas, Kool-aid, or Lemonades.  All swimmers should have dryland clothing ready for every practice.  

4.) CGAC Facebook Page: This is a private page just for our families! Please make sure when you request to be added that you must answer the question about who your swimmer is  in order to be approved. 

Have a great week and see you at the pool!

Summer Swim Lessons: Registration is now open and it can be reached from our CGAC website by clicking on the Learn to Swim tab. The first session begins June 3rd. This is a first come/first serve registration process so don't delay! Tell your friends and neighbors and visit our website HERE for more information.

Summer Sharks & Minnows:  Registration is now open for our Sharks & Minnows program click HERE   . The first day of practice will be June 4th. All swimmers joining sharks & minnows will need to be evaluated by CGAC coaching staff prior to joining.

RSVP Dates for Each Meet: For each meet we have on our schedule, you will notice there is a RSVP deadline date.  These dates are important because some meets fill up quickly.  Our coaching staff needs to know as soon as possible who is attending and who is not attending the meet. Sometimes, the entry deadline has passed and it is too late to RSVP your swimmer. If you know that your swimmer might want to swim a meet, RSVP right away. Putting together a line up for meets (especially if there are relays) is challenging and if there are last minute changes to the swimmer entries, it makes it hard for our coaches and costs extra money for the club.

#CHASESTRONG: The Smith Family of Indian Creek are friends of the CGAC family.  Chase, their 17 year old son, is fighting cancer for the 4th time. Many of you have asked how you can help.  The Smiths will be traveling to Cleveland, Ohio every week for the next few months for treatment.  The CGAC Family will be preparing snack bags for them to take each time they travel.  How can you help?  There will be a box on the table (by the folder boxes) marked for ChaseStrong donations.  We will be collecting Visa gift cards to purchase these snacks.  Any gift cards that are left over will be presented to the Smiths for their travel expenses.   If you wish to donate, please deposit Visa gift cards in that box at any time.  If you have any questions, please contact Michele De Luna,  Thank you on behalf of the Smith family and the CGAC family for your support.
