CONGRATULATIONS to our swimmers who raced in Toronto last weekend, whether at the Eastern Canadian Championships in Etobicoke or the Markham Invitational. Both meets were BIG, and very busy, with some long sessions, but everyone did a very good job of staying focused and getting themselves ready to go regardless of the circumstances. For 5 of our 7 swimmers at Eastern Canadians it was their first National Championship event and they all stood up with confidence and raced smart & tough, while in Markham there were plenty of swims that qualified for finals and almost everyone who did qualify for finals managed to come back and swim a little bit faster than in the preliminaries. Our 12&under swimmers in the afternoon sessions raced very well, with lots of pbs. Special congratulations to first ime Top 10 Performer Junsoo Pak, in the boys 11/12 100FL, and also to first time Provincial Championship qualifiers Ryan Ball and Rachel Nieuwenhuizen, Good luck to those swimmers racing at Brock University this weekend. Only 3 weeks until our Hollandia Invitational, and 3 weeks after that is the Regional Championships in Windsor, so take advantage of every training opportunity.


There have been some warm up changes. Saturday 2:30 - 3:30 pm. Sunday 8:00 – 9:00 am and 11:00 am –noon.

LAC Hollandia Invitational May 12-14 - If you're interested in working senior official positions please contact the Competition Coordinator Greg Lewis ( to reserve your spot. Provide Greg with the position(s) that you'd like to try, the session(s) you can attend, and if you would like a mentor. Senior Officials are positions other than Timers and Strokes & Turns on the Start or Turn end.  The Side Stroke Judges ARE senior positions and will be assigned by Greg.


Clinics – I have arranged clinics as shown below. They will all be held at the Canada Games Aquatic Centre.  If you do not know what these positions are and would like more information, sign in to the LAC website, hover your cursor over the Officials tab near the top of the home page, then select Levels/Positions from the dropdown.  The ground floor meeting room is on the entrance level and the pool level meeting room is at the bottom of the stairs.  Please sign-up so I know how many to expect and do your best to show up on time.  Each clinic taken for the first time earns a session credit.  If you have one, please bring the officiating card that you receive at the Intro clinic.

One other note. The registration package tells you that swimmer parents are required to take the Introduction to Swimming Officiating (Timer and Safety Marshal) clinic.
