Email Updates from LWSA (7/19/2019): 
Hello all,
Just a couple items of info for you.....
1. Reminder that the deadline for any added events that you missed is 4:00pm today.  I will post an updated event list and psych sheet this evening on the website reflecting the additions and scratches through your emails this afternoon.  After that, scratches will be made at the positive check in each session.
2.  Our parking lot areas at Lincoln-Way Central are undergoing repaving in the front of the building as well as on the east side along Schoolhouse Road.  Normally this would not be that big of a deal because we have the pool parking on the north side and the west lot is also open.  However, Central had the Dwayne Wade basketball clinic on Friday and Saturday in the gym.  This will cause some parking shortages with the south and east lots being closed.  Please don't kill the messenger, but we were just informed of this yesterday afternoon and there is not much that can be done.  The school has asked that families carpool as much as possible as well as use the forest preserve parking lot on the east side of Schoolhouse Road for an alternative.  I don't anticipate as much of a problem on Friday afternoon or Saturday morning, but the Saturday afternoon session may find parking tight.
Please inform your families!!!
3. The last item I have is the 100 degree anticipated heat wave we are all so lucky to experience the next couple days.  Please know that we are taking all measures to lessen the effects of the heat, but there is only so much we are going to be able to do.  The pool paks are running and the pool is comfortably warm, but once we fill the stands and deck, we all know it may get uncomfortable.  I have already had 3 emails from families of Bradley Bourbonnais demanding we have our air conditioning on in the pool. The pool is air cooled, but not air conditioned as we all know.  When the temp outside is 20 degrees hotter than the inside it will get warm.  Please talk to your parents and explain we will have fans, water on deck, etc. to try to offset some of the heat that we are expecting.  If Grandma and Grandpa would not venture outside in the heat wave, then I would not recommend that they think they will be able to handle a warm pool balcony either.  We are going to as always give you the best run meet possible, but things like 100 degrees and the hottest weather in 7 years are not totally in our control.
4.  Attached is the warmup lanes for this weekend.  Tonight (Friday) is open lanes for everyone.  Assigned lanes start on Saturday morning.
If you have any other concerns, comments, or questions, please let me know.  otherwise, I look forward to seeing all of you starting tomorrow afternoon.
Email Update from LWSA (7/16/2019):

Welcome to the start of  Regional championship week!  We are looking forward to hosting you in just a couple days.
Just some quick info to all of you.
Per ISI Championship rules, the last day for any additional entries you may have missed is 4:00pm on Thursday.  After that time all changes are final.  There is a $24 per event fee for all individual events, and $48.00 per relay event. Those of you who have already added new events, please make sure to bring your payment on Friday night in cash or check made to  LWSA.
I have attached the meet entries, timeline, and psych sheet with changes/additons/scratches through 10:00am today.  All of the info you need can also be accessed through the link on Illinois Swimming's  regional meet web page to the  LWSA web site. Once on the  LWSA site click on the  regional picture in the screen center and it will take you to the page which has been updated with the pre scratch timeline, team entries, and psych sheet. 
Any other info such as warmup lane assignments will be posted later in the week.
Don't forget to get your scratches in to me as soon as possible.  Even though this is a positive check in meet, if you have definite scratches, let's get them out of the way asap.
Doors will open on Friday at 2:30pm.  Saturday and Sunday doors will open at 6:30am.  Please pass this info on to your parents so they know to not get there any earlier.
If you have any questions or concerns please email me.

This is a "COMMIT BY EVENT" Registration meet for HSC.  Swimmers must have a Regional Qualifying time to compete at this meet.

Swimmers should discuss their "focus meet" with the Coaching Staff.  If a swimmer is NOT QUALIFIED or NOT GOING to Speedo Sectionals in Minneapolis (for high school swimmers) the same weekend, then they should go swim at Regionals if qualified and eligible (Eligibility Report posted and qualifying times in Meet Packet).  Swimmers that are swimming in Senior State or the PAC meet the previous weekend should still swim in Regionals if available and eligible.  Regionals will be in short course yards and so it will be a good opportunity to update yards times.  The only swimmers that might now want to swim a lot of events at Regionals are those that will have a heavy schedule at Age Group State the next weekend.  Swimmers should strategize with their coaches about if they should swim Regionals, and if so, what events.

Please email the Coaching Staff if you have any questions.
