Summer Schedules have now been posted on the LAC website under the “schedule” tab. Please note there are two schedules June 3 – 30 and July 1 – 14.



There have been some changes to the warm up times for the Hollandia Meet, please see the LAC website for changes. We are very short of volunteers for the canteen on Friday. We are also short Officials for most sessions this weekend please see the Official’s section in this newsletter.



This weekend is our Hollandia Invitational - swimmers, please remember and follow these standard meet protocols: be on time, warm up well, see your coach before and after each race, stay warm and hydrated and fueled, and HAVE FUN! There’s something good in every race, something to improve on in every race, and another race coming up soon, so stay positive, stay focused and stick to thinking about one race only...the next one!. This weekend's T-shirt rotation: royal on Friday, orange on Saturday, and royal or navy on Sunday. Everyone should also be wearing the team bathing cap, and get in the habit of wearing comfortable deck shoes that will help you retain body heat. But no walking in the mud in your deck shoes, they are for the pool deck only! This is "our house", so let's show lots of spirit on the deck, and lots of pride in the water. Whether you are racing for 1st or racing for 7th, race SMART and race TOUGH! GO LAC GO!

​A quick THANK YOU to the Allen family for connecting LAC with Pioneer Family Pools in Hyde Park, who have provided a very generous sponsor donation to the club. Hopefully this will be the start of a long and mutually beneficial partnership. Thank you to Pioneer Family Pools too!

LAC Hollandia Invitational May 12-14: Things are looking pretty good for senior officials but if you've taken the clinics and are interested in being mentored, there may still be some opportunities for that.  Please contact our Meet Referee, 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 indicate that 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.

It’s Volunteer Time!  We need YOU!: I just checked the minor officials sign-up pages and there are 176 open slots.  We need YOU!  Please do not wait to see if someone else will do it.  We need YOU!  We have 7 sessions that we cannot run.  We need YOU!  Even the Sunday Finals cannot run as is.  We need YOU!  Please log in to this website and sign up now.  Okay, I won’t say it again.

Clinics:  We had 40 students at clinics over the last few weeks.  That is a very good turnout this late in the season.  Thank you to everyone who came out.  We hope to see you putting your new skills to work as soon as this weekend, especially those who were at the Intro and the Strokes and Turns Clinics.

Meet Managers for the 2017-18 Season:  It is already that time of year where we begin the hunt for meet managers for next season.  This is a job that provides a great feeling of accomplishment, much of it will be done on your own schedule prior to the meet, and you have lots of people to lean on and learn from.  If you are new we will give you the clinic and help you through the process.  If you are interested in learning more, please contact me at the email address below.

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