Coaches Report

WELCOME BACK to all returning swimmers and a special WELCOME to all of you who are first-time LAC'ers!  It's great to be back at the pool and even greater to see all of you so excited about the upcoming year and eager to get going and start working.  We are also happy to welcome some new coaches onto our coaching staff - look for up-coming bios under the "Coaches" tab on our website.

As most of you know, our 2015 summer season finished with many exciting results both nationally and internationally and this year, the Olympic/Paralympic year, promises more of the same. The 2015-16 training and competition calendars have been posted in the "Schedules" section of the website - please keep in mind that there are usually several revisions to both the training and competition calendars early and throughout the year.  Our first event will be the Oct.18 Time Trial, followed later that day by our Awards Banquet at the Greek-Canadian Club.  Be sure to mark this date on your calendar as the first important event of the year.

As always, be sure to visit the LAC website regularly for information updates - between the coaches, the board of directors, and the website, all of your information needs should be met.

We want to wish all of you the very best for the coming year and we hope to help all of you in the pursuit of your goals.  DREAM BIG, believe in that dream and in yourself, work hard and, above all, HAVE FUN!!  If you do all of these things, your 2015-16 LAC experience should prove to be a truly memorable one!

Hello LAC Officials and welcome to the 2015/16 season!

Things are are changing in officiating in Ontario this year and you will be seeing some of those changes very shortly. Swim Ontario has taken over responsibility for officiating so that all aspects of swimming will fall under the same organization. Not a bad idea but they have had a lot of work to do and they are still working.

Amongst the changes that you will see is that ALL officials must be registered with Swim Ontario. Donna Moskal and I will be working had to make sure that happens as quickly as possible. Please respond promptly to emails in that regard so that we do not have to keep reminding. The second most obvious change is that the OSOA web site is no longer available and the online clinics are gone along with it. All clinics for the foreseeable future will be live, either arranged by LAC or by the region. I will be scheduling clinics for all positions several times this season. Please try to get to the first clinic that you can for all positions that you are interested in.

There will be a Regional clinic in the Cambridge area in early October. More details will follow next week.

All level 3, 4, and 5 officials are invited to the Annual Officials Seminar. Please see the Swim Ontario website for more information and on-line registration.

If you have any questions please contact me, Mark Lukings L.A.C. Co-Club Officials Chair at
