HOLIDAY TIME TRIAL
After some fast racing everyone is invited upstairs to the Multi-Purpose Room for some Holiday pizza and good cheer. As well, we are asking that everyone bring in their nicest pair of seldom-used mittens(or some new mittens) for our
Mitten Tree. These will be donated to charity.
The deadline has passed for the Holiday Time Trial. Only the swimmers that have confirmed attendance through the LAC website have been entered in the meet. If you missed the deadline and wish to attend please contact Donna at email@example.com or Andrew at firstname.lastname@example.org
Travel Statements for charges up to and including Youth Cup will be e-mailed over the course of the next week. If you have not received your travel account statement by Monday December 20th or have any questions or concerns about any of the items on the statement please contact Steve Roman @ email@example.com <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>. Further instructions on paying the amount due and understanding your travel statement will be sent in a separate e-mail later this week.
STROKE AND TURN CLINIC
On December 17/10 we will be holding a stroke and turn clinic from 5pm to 7pm at CGAC. If you are able to attend, please email me at email@example.com by Wednesday December 10.
Please note that if you can attend this clinic, you will be required to stay for the duration of the clinic as there is a quiz at the end.
MINOR OFFICIALS – DECEMBER TIME TRIAL
We will be using the same sign-up system for the December time trial as we used for the October time trial. To assist parents in obtaining their strokes and turns qualifications, 12 spots have been allocated for this purpose. If you sign-up for "Stroke and Turns - trainee", you should be in the process of taking or about to take the strokes and turns clinic. During the time trial, one of the experienced strokes and turns parents will be available to help you learn more about the position. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about strokes and turns in a low pressure situation.
12 & UNDER CELEBRATION MEET
Please contact Alex Vanderkam ( email address firstname.lastname@example.org ) if you wish to gain valuable experience in any of the senior official positions. It will be important that you have the clinics for the areas you want to work. This is a meet where we encourage our homegrown officiating talent an opportunity to climb the ladder.
The meet is being run on Saturday January 8th and 9th of 2011. There will be 2 sessions - 1 on Saturday with warmup at 2 p.m. and 1 on Sunday with a 7:30 a.m. warmup.
Please contact Alex by Jan 2/11 to ensure you get the experience you request.
