From Coach Amy:

Happy Tuesday CGAC families! Here are the things that you need to know for this week: 

1.) IHSAA Boys HS Sectionals and State: Congratulations to all of the CGAC swimmers who represented their respective high schools at this past weekend's IHSAA Boys Sectionals this past weekend. The following CGHS Boys Swimmers have qualified for the IHSAA State Championship meet this coming weekend at the IUPUI Natatorium!  200 Medley Relay (Clarkston, Xia, Gipson, Martin), 200 Free Relay (Clarkston, Hasquin, Dales, Martin) and 400 Free Relay (Gipson, Hasquin, Dales, Mitchell) as well as individual events Ethan Martin 50 Free, 100 Free. Garrett Crist & Ben Mitchell 500 Free. Tony Gipson 100 Fly. Justin Xia 100 Breaststroke.

2.) Practice Reminder: NO PRACTICE, Today 2/25 due to a home Middle School Meet!  Come out and support the future of CGHS Swimming and Diving as they take on Franklin Community at 6:00pm.

Red Team: Will have a makeup practice on February 26th from 5:00-6:30pm. There will be one practice for that night

3.) ICAC Beach Party Finale: The meet entry was sent out last night. Please let me know of any changes by 3pm tomorrow (2/26). Click  HERE for the meet packet. The meet is this Sunday, March 1st. Warm-ups are at 12:00pm and the meet starts at 1:00pm.This is a last chance meet for swimmers to earn cuts, and they have been put into events that give them the best opportunity to qualify for the upcoming Championship meets. Swimmers are limited to 5 individual events, including time trials. Time trial registration will be on site during the meet and the trials will take place at the conclusion of the meet. It will be the swimmer's (and parents) responsibility to sign-up for the time trials at the designated time. Swimmers may time trial events that they swam earlier in the day, as well as events that were not offered during the meet. Relays are not part of the time trial. 

4.) Last Practices/Meets (CG Site): The last meet for the Red, Black, Pre-Senior and Senior Team swimmers who have not met championship time standards will be the ICAC Beach Party Finale on March 1.  If your swimmer has not qualified for a Championship meet (Divisionals/State/Sectionals), their last practice will be Saturday, February 29th. Championship qualifiers will continue to practice through the highest meet that they have qualified for! 

If your swimmer is on the middle school team and club team, but they are not competing in Divisionals or State, then they will need to go to the Middle School team practices beginning Monday, March 2nd.

5.) Club Credits - Club credits have been updated (exceptions are any gift cards that were turned in this past week and families who signed up for future volunteer opportunities). Please log in to your account and review your balance and history. We apologize for the confusion. The website duplicated credits so we had to go through and manually fix all the accounts. If you have any questions please email Holly Argirs and Amanda Lavery  at meetcoordinator@cgacswim.org 

6.) Billing -  Club Credits have been updated. Any families with unfulfilled credits will be billed the $75 per credit fee on March 1st. There is an opportunity to still fulfill your club credits. You can register and work the TYR meet May 5-9 at the IU Natatorium. Go you our website and under Team Events you will see the TYR job sign up. Once you have registered to work the TYR meet you MUST email Erin and she will update your account. Any question please email Erin Graybeal at billing@cgacswim.org

7.) Long Course Opt-Out Option:  ALL current club swimmers are assumed to be participating in the Long Course season (April-August) unless you email Erin Graybeal at billing@cgacswim.org

8.)Swim Lesson Registration: Online registration opens this Monday, March 2 for Spring Swim Lessons.  Tell your friends and family that might be interested!  Please see the website for details. 

9.) Summer (Long Course Season): The meet schedule is in the process of being finalized. Due to Olympic Trials, several meet dates have been shifted. Therefore, we will not be taking a team travel meet this summer with the plan to return to a travel meet in 2021. Instead, we will be planning team outings around the Indy area this summer! 

Please see your swimmer's coach if you have any questions. 

Thank you and see you at the pool!
