Meet Sign Up Guidelines: As we begin sign ups for the LCSC Snowball Splash, coaches are encouraging all swimmers to swim the full event list available for their age group.  This demonstrates swimmer skill development over this autumn session.  It also shows team commitment, as this is our home swim meet and major team fundraising event.  Coaches will discuss event selection with all groups over the next two weeks as we begin preparations for our December meet.
