COACHES REPORT

CONGRATULATIONS to our 19 swimmers who raced at the Provincial Summer Festival in Markham last weekend, particularly our individual bronze medalists Carter Buck (100BK)  and Lauren Campbell (400IM), and our other top 8 finishers Junsoo Pak, Nikola Darvill-Kaiser, Colin Shearer and Ewan Shearer. Also, six swimmers raced to 100% personal bests - well done to Ryan Ball, Alexandria Beckett, Lauren Campbell, Emilee Pool, Siporah Sang and Mila Shull!

And good luck to our 29 swimmers who will be racing this weekend at the Summer Provincial Championships in Scarborough at the Pan-Am Pool.

 

JULIA XIAN - LAC GRADUATE

The entire LAC family would like to congratulate and extend sincere best wishes to another of our graduating swimmers, Julia Xian from Senior Bronze, who will be attending The New School's Parsons School of Art & Design in New York City. Like our other graduates Julia has been a member of the LAC family since elementary school and has demonstrated a great attitude, great work ethic, and been a great teammate. Good luck in your future endeavours Julia and remember that you will always be part of the LAC family.

 

2017-18 REGISTRATION

The last day of swimming for the 2016-17 season is at the Paul Hauch Swim Meet July16, except for those swimmer’s qualified for the Canadian Jr/Sr Championships. Group placements and registration information for the 2017-18 season will be emailed by the beginning of August at which time on line registration will open. The 2017-18 season will begin Monday September 18 (there will be some pre-season workouts for Senior Gold/Silver the week of September 11). New swimmer assessments will be September 12 and 14 at CHOCC. 

 

DR PAUL HAUCH MEET

Our Hauch meet is fast approaching and in keeping with tradition we will be doing our famous bell heats. Instead of asking for a food donation for this meet, each family will be asked to donate $10 worth of prizes (broken up into smaller prize amounts if possible to spread the prizes out further.) Examples from previous years are $5 gift cards, Towels, Water bottles and a variety of fun toys for the kids to play with around the pool for the day.
When you have your prizes please bring them to your coach or Jane Callon. Please make sure to attach a swim family name when handing in your prizes.

ATTENTION ALL BBQ MASTERS!

​This year we will be running a BBQ fundraiser during the Paul Hauch Invitational. We need parent volunteers to show off their hamburger and hotdog flipping skills. BBQ shifts are 2:30-6:30pm Friday, 10:30am-2:30pm and 2:30-6:30pm on both Saturday and Sunday. There is a particular need during the afternoon shifts. Anyone willing to help out please contact Jan Tebbutt at jan.tebbutt@bell.ca

 

SHOP AND EARN CASH BACK FOR LAC!

Have fun shopping online while earning money towards our club!  We can compete with other swim clubs and sports teams in our area to see who can raise the most money for our team!  You can follow along on the website to see how much is raised to date and how many people have purchased through our club.  Feel free to invite friends and family to join in the fun! It's easy to set up by following the simple instructions.

Shop brands such as Indigo, Starbucks, Sephora, Walmart, Old Navy, Lowes, The Bay, Booking.com, Groupon and even Gift Cards (East Side Marios, Swiss Chalet, etc).   When you order a $50 Gift Card, for example, $5 goes to LAC.  You can print it off immediately.

LAC SESSION CREDITS

Information on how to access your credits 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!

Dr. Paul Hauch Invitational (July 14 to 16): I have a number of people, from both LAC and visiting, who have volunteered for senior officiating at Hauch.  Things are looking pretty good but I could use another senior official for the Friday 13 and over late afternoon session.  I also have room for people who have taken a clinic but have not worked the job and would like an opportunity to learn with a mentor.  If interested in either of these then please let me know this week by emailing me the sessions that you are available and the positions that you would prefer to work/learn.  The minor official sign-ups should be posted early next week. 

Meet Managers for the 2017-18 Season: I am still looking for meet managers for next season.  I have had a few offers and I am waiting for this season’s meet managers to get back to me but I will soon be contacting additional people directly.   If you were hoping to get started on Meet manager with higher officiating levels in mind, please get back me using the email address below.  We are still very short and it will be healthy for the club if we can develop new meet managers.  We are hosting the Western Region Short Course Championships again this year.  With this extra meet, we need extra help!

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