From Coach Amy:

1.) Season wrap-up: CGAC finished our long course season over the weekend, with swimmers competing at 3 different meets! Congratulations to all of our swimmers who competed at the Summer Divisional Championships! Our swimmers had too many best times for me to keep track of and lots of trips to the podium. Izzie Ferguson and Vincent Howe represented CGAC and Team Indiana at the Central Zone meet in Fargo, ND, where both swimmers achieved best times in their respective events. CGAC National Team members, Gracie DeLuna, Tony Gipson and Ethan Martin competed at the USA Swimming Futures Championships, also dropping time and gaining experience racing some of the best in the country. 

2.) Short Course Season: The CG site will begin the 2019-2020 short course season on September 9th. ALL SWIMMERS will need to re-register prior to the start of the season. Online registration will open August 21st. Separate emails will be sent out prior to the start of the season to those swimmers who will be moving groups.

3.) Upcoming Dates: August 21 online registration for RETURNING SWIMMERS will open                               

                                   September 4&5th New Swimmer Evaluations at CGHS 5:30-7:00pm

                                   September 9th: First day of Short Course Season Practices. 

4.)Swim Lessons: Swim Lesson dates will be posted soon for our fall lessons! 

5.) Sharks & Minnows: Registration for our Fall Sharks & Minnows program will open on Wednesday September 4. The first day of practice will be November 4th. All SWIMMERS joining sharks & minnows will need to be evaluated by CGAC coaching staff prior to joining. New swimmer evaluations will be held at the CGHS September 4&5 5:30-7:00pm

I want to give a HUGE THANK YOU to all of the coaches, board members and parents who go above and beyond in their support of our sport and our team. Your time and selflessness is very appreciated and I am very grateful to have you as a part of our swim family!

Enjoy your Break!

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.

#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, michele@inswimming.org.  Thank you on behalf of the Smith family and the CGAC family for your support.
