Spring/Summer Season: Flight School went great! The coaching staff saw a lot of improvement throughout the week. I hope you all can continue to sharpen those skills that you learned throughout this season.  The regular schedule for the seasons starts TODAY! Make sure you contact Coach Joel, joel.elber@gmail.comif you are not yet registered for the Spring/Summer session.

Parent Resource:  USA swimming and Team USA offer great resources for all of its members. Here is a great article on the USA swimming website that would be a great read for all parents. Enjoy!

Buffalo Wild Wings Blazin’ Invite: This meet is a team travel meet for all athletes 13 years and older. If you would like to attend this meet, team travel is required. The only exception to the 13 year old rule is if you have a sibling athlete already going. However, if you choose to sign up the 12 or younger athlete, you are responsible for all accommodations, travel, meals, etc… Information will be on the meet page as soon as it becomes available. 12 and younger athletes are encouraged to attend the SSC Summer Sizzler the same weekend.

We are currently working on an itinerary for this week so when once we have more information, it will be posted on the website.

Coach’s Segment

SAFE SPORT: It is critically important for our club to provide a safe and effective environment for all athletes, coaches, parents, volunteers, officials, etc… With the new season kicking off it would be a great time to review (if you have already gone through it) or go over the safe sport links we provide for you on the website. Please click on the link and I STRONGLY encourage all athletes and parents to go over the online training. We as a club need to be as vigilant as possible when it comes to the safety of our people.


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

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 ( 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.
