Coaches Report

We had 18 LAC swimmers represent our team in Nepean this weekend at the Long Course “Spring” Provincial Championships. It was one of LAC’s first of many Long Course Meets kicking off the Long Course season, which officially starts after the March Break.

Of the 18 athletes, 6 were able to accomplish 100% personal bests this weekend (Carter Buck, Katie Callon, Sam Cormier, Sam Fish, Michael Quigley, and William Stewart). We would also like to recognise William Stewart’s 2 Silver Medals, and Brayden Salmon’s 3 Silver, 1 Bronze. Our total improvement was 63%.
Congratulations Carter Buck, First Time Age Group Championship Qualifier

Thank you to all the athletes who participated, your strength and character shined through!

For those of you at home for March Break, please have a safe, fun, and restful week.

It’s Official! 

The LAC Long Course Pentathlon is on March 25.  If you have taken the clinic and are interested in working as a senior official to get some experience please contact Bonnie Marceau at brmarceau@rogers.com   If it is your first time doing the job and you would like a mentor, be sure to let Bonnie know.

Alex Vanderkam vanderkam6404@rogers.com  is our Competition Coordinator for Hollandia in May.  If you are interested in working in specific senior positions at this meet, please contact Alex soon.  People from other clubs are already approaching him to work at this very popular meet.

I apologize for the lack of progress on scheduling clinics.  My 13 year old car finally died and I am busy dealing with finding a replacement.  I will still be scheduling most or all clinics between the Pentathlon and Hollandia.  If I can squeeze one or two of those clinics into the week before the Pentathlon, I will.

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