Session II Registration Update
Thank you to all interested in swimming with LCSC during Session II (Nov. 30, 2020-March 20, 2021). Session II start is delayed due to the current moratorium on group training. We have changes to our group structures to accommodate more interested swimmers. LCSC coaches are reviewing the group requests and will have recommendations for registration by the beginning of next week. If you have a request for a certain group (especially Gold Advanced and Gold 1 & 2), please contact Coach Vince this week.
LCSC Updated Group Structure/Descriptions
~SR/Platinum: Sr/Platinum group has a cap of 42 athletes. Coho swimmers interested in training with the SR/Platinum group should be aware that there are weekly attendance requirements to maintain good standing in this training slot: Senior swimmers are expected to be at practice Monday through Friday; Platinum swimmers are expected to attend at least four days Monday through Friday. Saturday practices are designated for swimmers attending practice every day. If you are able to honor this attendance commitment, then the SR/Platinum group is for you! If you are not able to honor this commitment, then the Gold group may fit your training needs.
~Gold Advanced: Gold Advanced is for swimmers interested in training 4+ days/week. The number of available spots in the Gold Advanced group is 22. Selection to the Gold Advanced group is based on October attendance and/or commitment to attend practice 4-5 times per week throughout Session II. Coaches emphasize the importance of daily attendance over an extended period of time to cultivate a successful swimming career.
~Gold 1 and Gold 2: The Gold 1 and Gold 2 groups are being introduced to accommodate swimmers, ages 10-18, who have met the entry requirements for Gold Group, and are interested in training three or less times per week. Gold 1 & 2 will each have a cap of ten swimmers. Because we are limited to a maximum number of swimmers each night, this group will have the option of signing up for either M/W/F or T/Th/Sat. Introducing this group allows LCSC to offer more interested swimmers the opportunity to participate this winter.
~Bronze/Silver 1 & 2: Bronze/Silver 1 & 2 have one less practice per week, but the same amount of instructional time as during Session I.
Thank you for keeping all Cohoes safe!
