LCSC Coho Update             9 July 2020

Summer 2020 Covid-19 Reminder
We are thrilled to be training together in water!  Thank you to our LCSC Board of Directors for their relentless pursuit of a solution for the summer, to Fairway Farms and the City of Livonia for leasing us water time, all of our parents, and all of our Coho swimmers.  “Safety First” has new meaning this summer: follow CDC guidelines for social distancing, hand washing, monitoring for symptoms of Covid-19; being aware of the modified entry/exit procedures at facilities; and understanding that we don’t fully understand this virus.   Please conduct the home health survey each morning, and report to the coaches at sign-in that you are “Covid Safe.”

Summer Session Goal Sheets
Goal sheets are a seasonal ritual that allow athletes to specify skills for improvement and plan a road map to future success.  All swimmers are expected to have a completed, hand-written goal sheet on file with the coaching staff.  Goal sheets are found on the team website at:
Also on this page are swimmer evaluation forms and daily athlete journal outlines.  All of these tools may help swimmers accelerate their progress in the water.  Please bring any questions, comments, or concerns to the Coho coaches.  Thank you to all of our swimmers that have already turned in their summer goals sheets!

Coho Dry Land Training
After discussing dry land schedules with Coach Paul, we have determined the following schedule going forward: Platinum, and Senior for 50 minutes after water time, Monday through Thursday; Gold for 50 minutes after water time, Monday and Wednesday; Bronze and Silver for 30 minutes before water start, Monday through Thursday.
Dry Land is optional and highly recommended.  All swimmers must provide their own equipment for training: 
Bronze/Silver: athletic shoes and socks, jump rope
Gold/Platinum/Senior: Athletic shoes and socks, jump rope, medicine ball, stretch cords, and/or light weights

Technique Analysis
Coho swimmers have the opportunity to sign up for small group Technique Analysis with Coach Paul and Coach Allie.  These sessions will be on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, from 7:00-8:00 a.m.   Groups will be limited three swimmers.  Swimmers must have a current season goal sheet turned in to be eligible for this valuable service.  Each swimmer will be filmed and strokes analyzed by Coach Paul.  Sign-ups will be done by the coaches at practice.  Swimmers and families will be reminded by email of their scheduled time.
