LCSC Coho Update 13 September 2021

LCSC Coho Update      13 September 2021

Schedule Update
Session I begins today at Burton Hollow Swim Club.  The schedule and group sizes were constructed with our time at the Rec Center in mind.  Our 4-6 p.m. groups and our Bronze/Silver 2 groups are full, but tell your friends there is room in our other 6-8 p.m. groups!  Friday evening time for all Bronze/Silver groups is 5:30-6:30 p.m.

What to Expect Each Day at Practice
~Please arrive 15 minutes ahead of water time to stretch and prepare to be in the water on time.  
~No equipment will be needed for the first week of practice.  If there are delays in being able to order equipment, we can work around that. 
~Please do not park in the turnaround section of the lot.  Please park in a parking spot and walk up to the doors to meet your swimmer(s).
~In case of inclement weather, please check the Team Feed for practice updates.  If practice is canceled, coaches will send an email to all families along with posting the info on the Team Feed.

LCSC Training Equipment
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 to best improve technique. 
Bronze/Silver: Finis Alignment kickboard, Finis PDF fins
Gold: Finis Alignment kickboard, Finis PDF fins, Finis Freestyle snorkel* (*must be specific style)
SR/Platinum: Finis Alignment kickboard, Finis Edge fins, Finis ISO Paddles, Finis Stability Snorkel, Swim parachute, and mesh bags for kicking.  Swim parachutes differ in their price, size, and quality; mesh bags (12” x 18”, or larger) may be found at the Champion Sports Store:

Coho Goal Sheets
Each swimmer in every group is expected to complete a seasonal goal sheet in their own handwriting.  A completed copy should be returned to LCSC coaches by Monday, September 20.  Coaches also recommend that each swimmer keeps another copy of their completed goal sheet at home for regular reference.  This is an important tool in long-term development, and we look forward to helping each and every Coho reach their seasonal goals!  Goal sheets are available on the team website:
