12 & Under Stars and Stripes Meet Fireworks:  We are still currently planning on fireworks, weather permitting and we will communicate any changes as they are made.

From the Meet Coordinator: For my families that will be helping out at the meet, please allow plenty of time to arrive on time for your position.  Due to the limited parking, it may take longer than anticipated to get into the pool.  We want the meet to run on time and will need all of your help to make this happen.

If anybody is still looking for club credits, please contact me at  We could use some extra help blocking off and directing traffic for the fireworks.

As a Reminder: Due to construction in front of the Hall of Excellence, event parking for our Stars & Stripes meet tonight will be different.  We are asking our CGAC Families to park in the Academy East, Academy West, and West Football Lots but still enter the facility through Door 6.  We would like to save the South and Southwest Lots for our visiting teams.  Vendors will be located in the Hall of Excellence including My Logo Shop, iDesignables, Making Waves, The BubbleTea Lady, Son's Kettle Korn, and Ella's Frozen Yogurt.  Outside of Door 8 will be our food trucks Brozinni's Pizza and Johnson's BBQ, as well as access to the Skillman Stadium Grandstands for free fireworks viewing at the conclusion of the swim meet, approximately 9:45 pm.  Please stay and enjoy the food trucks and fireworks sponsored by our club!  We have designated the Northeast Lots, East Lot, and East Football Lots for Community Fireworks Parking which also provides them access to the Skillman Stadium Grandstands and food trucks! You are more than welcome to share this event with friends, family, and neighbors.

From the CGAC Board of Directors and Coordinators: We would like to welcome Amanda Bean to the Board.  Amanda will be serving as our Team Social Events Coordinator. 

We would also like to thank Jane Bohley for your time, dedication and commitment  on the Board as our Concessions Coordinator.  The Concessions Coordinator position is now open.  If you would like to find out more about serving in this role, please contact Heather Trammell at

Ongoing Updates & Reminders

Fitter and Faster is coming to Indianapolis for a Summer Swim Camp Series that includes four weekends of two-day swim camps PLUS a video filming and analysis day! This camp will take place at the iconic IUPUI Natatorium in August and September.

Each of the weekend camps will go into detail on one stroke with an Olympian that specializes in that stroke. Then, participants have the opportunity to sign up for the video analysis where they can have one or all 4 strokes analyzed by Olympic coach Todd Schmitz, who was MISSY FRANKLIN'S coach!

This would be a great opportunity to prepare for the short course season.
