Coach’s Segment

Weather policy: I wanted to reiterate our snow plicy:

·          No school = No LST practice

·          2 hour delay = morning practice canceled, pm practice as scheduled

Other

·          Athlete Gear: As most of you know we have our online team store up and running. You can access the store following the link or from our home pageon the website. We have everything on there discounted just for LST. The password to access the team store is: golst

·          Locker Room: The locker rooms are available for changing before and after practice for the LST athletes. Here are a few more guidelines for locker room usage:

o    DO NOT store your bag in the locker room unless it is locked up. We are not the only people using the locker rooms. You may keep the bag on deck where it can be monitored more closely.

o    5 minutes is the total change time allotted before and after practice. Please be respectful of the coaches’, teammates’, and parents’ time.

o    NO PHONES: refrain from using any phones in the locker room

·          Pick-up/Drop-off: Pick up and drop off will be at door number 8. Parents, please remind your athletes to change and go directly to the pool deck to meet for dryland. For pick-up, our expectation is that the athletes get picked up within 10 minutes of the practice finishing. If you have an athlete that will be picked beyond the ten minutes after practice, the swimmer must report to the pool deck and the parents must come in to pick up their swimmer. We cannot monitor the back hallway at all times so for the safety of our athletes, please try and pick up your kids in a timely manner.

·          New Members: To all the new members, welcome to the best swim club in the Indianapolis area! If you have not yet done so, please email coach Joel (joel.elber@gmail.com) a copy of your birth certificate to go along with your first registreation.

·          LST Yearly Practice Schedule

·          Fall/Winter Calendar: The group specific fall/winter calendar is now available online under the “ Group Calendars” tab. Make sure you select the group you would like to view from the dropdown menu. Our first day back will be Tuesday, September 4th!

·          Fall Meet Schedule: Here is the most up to date fall meet schedule. This will also be available online under the “Group Calendars” link at the top of the LST homepage.

·          Safe Sport: Athletes and parents, make sure you participate in USA swimming’s safe sport training:  Safe Sport Athlete Training and Safe Sport Parent Training.
