Coach’s Segment

Not Just Another Season: It is easy, especially for those of you who have been swimming for a while, to just let the seasons run together without really thinking about it. The only way to get better is to do something at a higher level than you have ever did before. This week is going to be filled with detail work specifically with starts and breakouts. Let’s kick the season off right and come to each practice session with purpose and intention to achieve at a higher level than you ever have. It will be worth it in the end.

Other

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
