COACHES REPORT

As we head into the Nothers Invitational this weekend, here are a few protocols/behaviours the coaches will be very happy to see on display from LAC athletes:
1) punctuality: 5 minutes early is on time
2) effective and complete warm-up, inclusive of some dry activation, that ensures your first race of the session is not a "shock" to your muscular and cardiovascular systems.
3) checking in with your coach before and after each swim
4) taking something good from each swim, and something to be worked on for the next one
5) swimming one race at a time
6) smiling, staying positive, and keeping things in perspective
7) being a great teammate

If you are successful in working on these behaviours throughout the weekend, your meet can be considered a success, regardless of the times that come up on the board beside your name. GO LAC GO!

LAC SESSION CREDITS

Nothers session sign-ups are now available on the LAC website. We are short officials on the Friday am so if you are available please help out.

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!

Calling All Minor Officials!

Nothers starts on Friday and some of the sessions are looking pretty light for Timers and Strokes and Turns judges.  We could really use you help.  You can look for yourselves to see where the needs are and what slots you could fill by stretching a little more but let me point out the more urgent sessions for you.  For Strokes and Turns, Saturday and Sunday afternoons need help.  For timers, Fridaymorning is desperate, early afternoon is urgent and Sunday morning is not much better.  Ideally we could get all of the slots filled in all sessions.  Please don’t wait for someone else to do it.  

The first cut of Nothers Senior Officials assignments was sent out a week ago Sunday.  The final grid will be sent out shortly if it has not already been sent at the time of reading this.

Nothers Dress Code

Swim Ontario would like to see Timers and Chief Timekeepers in white top and black bottoms, all other officials should be in red top and black bottoms.  Senior officials should be in pants, not shorts, especially Referees and Starters.  Having said that, an improperly dressed official is better than no official, but your cooperation would be appreciated.

Holiday Invitational 

I am the competition coordinator for the LAC 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.  There are limited spots available. 

Officials Red Shirts

Red officiating shirts can still be ordered.  If you are just ordering now it is unlikely that they will arrive in time for Nothers, but there are more meets coming up!  Please see the information in the Spiritwear section in the newsletter from 2 weeks ago.

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