From Coach Amy:

Hello CGAC Parents and Swim Families,

I want to take this opportunity to welcome all of our new swimmers to the CGAC family and to welcome back our returning swimmers. Thank you to our many returning families for your dedication to this team. Our fall/winter short course season is already off to an energetic start with an amazing group of swimmers, talented coaching staff and parent volunteers who are committed to making this a season full of strong results, good fun and team spirit!

If you have any questions regarding CGAC, please contact any CGAC board member. If your questions are related to your swimmer, please contact your swimmer’s coach.  Board and Coach, contact information can be found on the team website www.cgacswim.org.

 If you have not yet registered, you must do so TODAY in order for your swimmers to be able to both attend practice and meets. If you are having difficulty with registering, please contact us via response to this email.

2.) General Info (All Sites): All swimmers should have dryland clothing ready for every practice. We will go outside if the temperature is over 60 degrees, so please have your swimmer dress accordingly.  

3.) RSVP Your Swimmer(s) for a Swim Meet:  Once your swimmer has been registered and approved in the system, you can then RSVP your swimmer to attend a swim meet.  Remember to RSVP, you must be logged into the team website using your log-in email and password for your family account.  Click this link: Video instructions to see a short video on how to RSVP your swimmer for a swim meet.  This page and video are located on the "Parent Info Page" on our website.  Especially read the FAQ page.  We are continually updating it.

4.) How do I know if my swimmer is ready to compete in a swim meet?: Every swimmer is different.  However, the more swim meets a swimmer can attend the better.  Competing in meets creates an opportunity for swimmers to put all their hard work from practice to the test. If you are not sure, please email your swimmer's coach.

5.) Important Upcoming Dates:
