LCSC Coho Update      7 September 2021
Welcome and Welcome Back to Coho Swimming!

Thank you for making LCSC your year-round swim team!  LCSC is a member of USA Swimming and is part of the Michigan Swimming community.  Coaches are finishing up their vacations, getting rested and ready to offer our team great instruction and training over the next year and beyond.  Coho coaches hope that everyone is getting their school year on the right track and planning for success throughout the year.  Please use this newsletter as a reference for getting the year off to a successful start.

LCSC Suits, Caps, and Training Equipment
     LCSC has partnered with Jolyn suits for our team swim wear.  Click on the “Jolyn” tab on our homepage and you will be directed to the swimsuit order page.
     Latex team caps will be available from coaches upon request.  Each swimmer may receive up to two latex caps per calendar year.  Silicone team caps will be ordered at the end of this month.  Both generic team silicone caps and personalized caps must be ordered in pairs.  Please send your silicone cap orders to Coach Vince.  The silicone cap order will be sent out September 30, so contact Coach Vince on/before September 29.
     Each Coho swim group has its specific list of equipment. Most equipment is available through our team store.  Just click the icon on our home page, and the LCSC store will link up.  The specific type of equipment (i.e., Finis products, styles) have been selected by the coaches as the best equipment to improve technique.

What to Expect as LCSC Continues to Practice
1. Direct instruction and practice time to correctly perform basic and advanced racing skills.  
In swimming, the combination of excellent instruction and time to fine-tune those skills is the path to success.  Coho coaches are well prepared daily to offer excellent instruction, and our Board of Directors have been tenacious in providing pool time so that our young swimmers have the best opportunities to be successful Coho swimmers.
2. Please stay up-to-date with all safety issues related to the Covid-19 pandemic.  
Thank you for keeping all Cohoes safe!
