Coaches Report

Congratulations to all athletes who participated in the Harvest & Autumn swim meets this past weekend in Markham. The coaches are thrilled with the amount of focus and attention dedicated to skills throughout the meet. Developing a strong skill base at this point in the season is crucial to becoming an advanced racer.
Both tough in the water and tough on deck, LAC certainly demonstrated an incredible amount of team spirit by starting each session with a swimmer directed cheer.
Let's continue the strong team atmosphere as our younger athletes storm Tillsonburg this weekend!
"Let's go LAC!"

Session Credits

Session credit summaries can be found on the club website. To see your individual summary of all the sessions that you have worked this season you will need to go to the LAC website and follow these steps:

1) Sign into your account:

2) Under heading MY ACCOUNT

3) Click on the tab on the left side of the page MY INVOICE/ PAYMENT

4) Click on the tab SERVICE HOURS

There you will find all of your session credit information. The most important thing to remember is that it says service hours but for our club it is actually session credits and 1 hour = 1 session credit. If at any time you notice an error with your summary please contact Donna with your information (i.e. meet, date, time and job) and you credits will be rechecked. As always, members are advised to keep a record with dates, times and meets of the sessions they work. Please keep your emails with this information as it makes things much easier to track.

Viewing Practice at Memorial Boy’s and Girl’s Club

Since no parents are permitted to attend the children and youth programs in the building we have to follow this for all programs and rentals. Could you please connect with the representative for the swim teams who rent our facilities and let them know that starting Monday, October 26th anyone who wishes to watch their child in the pool will only be permitted to do so on the pool deck on the benches along the wall. Furthermore, in order to keep our facility clean we ask that everyone either bring sandals to change into before going onto the pool deck, wear the shoe covers provided, or go barefoot on the pool deck.

Thank You

Clinics! I am hosting 8 clinics prior to Nothers. For those of you wanting to take the Timer Clinic, it is now known as the Introduction to Swimming Officiating Clinic. Anyone can take any of the clinics except Referee, which is for Level III candidates and above. Clinic sign-ups are available on the LAC website. There is a session credit for everyone taking each clinic for the first time but repeats are welcome if anyone would like a refresher.

A reminder that ALL Officials MUST fill out and sign the Code of Conduct form AND the PIPEDA form. This is in addition to the one that you may have filled out for your swimmers. If you are intending to officiate this year and have not filled out BOTH of these forms then please sign in to the LAC site, hover your cursor over the Officials tab, select each form from the drop down, print and fill out the forms and drop them in the LAC mailbox at CGAC.

Once we create or activate your new officials account you will receive an email with your Username and Password and a link to the site. It is MANDATORY that you sign in to your account and fill in the missing and/or incorrect information.
