COACHES REPORT

Welcome back everyone! The coaches sincerely hope you had an enjoyable and restful break, and are re-energized and re-focused on taking your swimming to an even higher level in 2017.  Many of you had some terrific results in the fall season and, as a result, need to re-set your goals for the remainder of the winter season. Others of you may have come up a bit short of where you hoped to be at the December championship meets...if you are in this boat do not be discouraged. Just as success breeds success, adversity and disappointment can also lead to success. Be positive in your thoughts and self-talk (you have to be your #1 fan), be consistent in every aspect of your training (punctuality, preparation, and performance) and be accountable to yourself for being a great teammate. There is only one person who is going to determine your level of success in the pool, and that person is YOU! And there is only one place where success comes before work, and that's in the dictionary. Let's get right back to work, the next wave of championship meets will be upon us before you know it, make POSITIVITY, CONSISTENCY, and ACCOUNTABILITY part of your everyday approach and you WILL succeed.

SPIRITWEAR ORDERS

The next Spiritwear order will be placed in January, forms and cheques are due by Friday January 13.

IT’S OFFICIAL!

12 and Under Celebration: We Still Need YOU – We are still short on senior officials for the 12 and Under Celebration.  We are also having a short Time Trial for 13 and over swimmers in the evening following Saturday’s 12 and Under session.  If you are interested in Senior Official job(s) at the 12 and Under Celebration or at the Time Trial, and have the clinic for that job, please contact Denise McDonald at mcdonald.denise.e@gmail.com and let her know what job(s) you would like to work and when you are available.

WOSA Short Course Championship - I am the Competition Coordinator for WOSA.  I will soon need to put out a call to the region for senior officials.  If you want to work senior official positions at WOSA and have not already done so, please let me know NOW.  I need to know the sessions that you are available and what positions you are seeking.

Clinics – I am working on scheduling two clinics on January 13 and 14.  These will be the Introduction to Swimming Officiating and the Strokes and Turns Clinic.  Watch for sign-ups to be posted.  I plan to run the rest of the clinics in the weeks between the 12 and Under Celebration and the WOSA Champs.

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