COACHES REPORT

Hard to believe our Nothers Invitational is in 2 weeks. The fall season is flying by, hopefully you have all got yourselves settled into your routines both at school and with your swimming. We are constantly reminding you that no matter what your goals are, and no matter how hard you work towards them in the pool, if you are neglecting the "invisible" skills, i.e., those habits that no one else can see, your hard work in pursuit of your goals will be in vain. Are you getting enough sleep (60hrs per week is recommended)? Are you keeping your fuel tank topped up by eating and drinking enough? Do you eat something before morning practice (after fasting for 8hrs or more while you sleep)? Are you eating again as soon after morning practice as possible, replenishing the carbohydrates lost during your 90min or 2 hour morning swim? Discipline is what we do when no one is watching - if you form good "invisible" skills in the areas of rest and recovery (sleep-nutrition-hydration) your chances of success will increase significantly.

We are still waiting on the parkas and warm up suits from the September and October orders, we will let you know when these have arrived.

 

LAC SESSION CREDITS

Nothers session sign-ups are now available on the LAC website

Session credits information is available on the LAC website under the “Parent Info” tab. If you have any questions please email Donna lacmembership01@gmail.com

 

IT’S OFFICIAL!

The first cut of Nothers Senior Officials assignments was sent out on Sunday.  If you still want to work at or be mentored in a senior position at Nothers, have not already let me know, and  have the clinic for the position, you can still make requests via my email but they will only happen if I get cancellations, and I have already had a few. At the present time I have 48 different people from many clubs who will be helping and in most cases learning at Nothers.   

Sign-ups for Minor Officials (Timekeepers and Judges of Strokes and Turns) at Nothers have been posted on the LAC web site and the 24 hour limit should now be lifted.  Please get in there and fill all of those empty slots.

I am the competition coordinator for the Holiday Invitational.  If you would like to be a senior official or to be mentored in a senior job at that meet, please let me know.  

Officials Red Shirts

Red officiating shirts can still be ordered but they may not arrive in time for Nothers.  Please see the information in the Spiritwear section in last week’s newsletter.

Clinics!

So far this season we have had 7 LAC hosted clinics with almost 100 students attending.  Thank you to everyone for coming out and showing an interest in advancing as an official.

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