Announcements

Spring/Summer Season: The Spring/Summer season is just around the corner and our first day back in the pool will be Tuesday, April 2. Make sure you contact Coach Joel, joel.elber@gmail.comif you have not yet done so to transition your membership over to the spring/summer.

LCM Summer Meet Schedule:The summer event schedule is posted on the website both on the Events & Swim Meets page as well as the group calendar

Flight School: The first week back in the spring starting on Tuesday, April 2, we will have all the kids go through “Flight School”. It is a week dedicated only to starts, breakouts, turns and finishes. This will help everyone “Fly” through the water! The schedule will be different than normal so make sure you check the calendar for those days and times. Make sure you come to the pool prepared to with sneakers, shorts, t-shirt, caps, goggles and suits. We will be doing a fair amount of jumping and land work as we “take flight”.

This Week

Pool is closed! Have a great spring break!!!

Coach’s Segment

Getting Better: All components of the club, staff, board, parents, athletes, etc… are on a continuous mission to keep getting better. I want to please invite any and all feedback you have over the past year. We certainly continually evaluate and adjust to provide the best swimming experience possible but we can truly grow to the BEST unless we hear from you. For feedback, please email me at joel.elber@gmail.com. See you at the pool!

Athlete Gear: You can access the store following the link or from our home pageon the website. We have everything on there discounted 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 registration.

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.

If anyone has any questions, concerns, suggestions, etc… please feel free to contact me. I can be reached at: joel.elber@gmail.com, (317) 517-5348

Go LST!
