WORKOUT CHANGES

Sat Jan 19 NO LAC workouts due to Swim Meets

 

COACHES REPORT

Back into competition mode this weekend, with everyone racing at either our 12&Under Celebration or in Toronto. Please remember the guidelines on competition behaviour: 1) great team spirit including team cap and shirt, 2) punctuality - at the beginning of each session checking in with your coach...especially at the 12&Under meet as the relays are the 1st events each day and relay teams need to be determined at the beginning of warm-up 3) making sure you're seeing your coach before and after each race 4) good warm-up habits 5) fuelling for performance 6) finally, HAVING FUN! This weekend's racing is an opportunity to get back into a competition mindset, and perhaps work on some secondary stroke development and different race strategies...swimming your "best" event at every single meet can sometimes be counter-productive.  Everyone race smart, race tough, hold technique when tired, and have a "WHY NOT ME" attitude.

MILTON MARLINS INVITATIONAL JANUARY 19-20

PLEASE NOTE WARM UP CHANGE: Saturday warm up is now 7:00 am. Sunday warm up will remain 7:30 am. 

This meet is for all 13&over swimmers not attending Ontario Cup - the meet is 2 timed finals sessions, Sat & Sun morning, only the swimmers that confirmed their attendance on the LAC website have been entered in the meet. For those that indicated Team travel to Milton the bus will be departing CGAC at 5:15am Sat and 5:30 am Sun. The bus will return to CGAC at approximately 3pm each day.

 

12 & UNDER CELEBRATION MEET

This meet is for all of LAC 12 and under swimmers. It takes place at CGAC on the weekend of Jan 19 & 20. Only the swimmers that have confirmed their attendance on the LAC website have been entered in the meet.

Officials, we are in a familiar situation where we have more than enough Timers and not nearly enough Strokes and Turns Officials for the 12 and Under Celebration.  If you are qualified and available, please sign up for Strokes and Turns or let Minor Officials Co-Ordinator Mary Allen know by emailing her at marydan@bigbill.ca. 

If you were looking for a sign-off for either Timing or Strokes and Turns, please ask to be put at the start end of the pool when checking in. Please also remember to bring your card and let the Session Referee know at the start of the session that you are seeking a sign-off for the position.

LAC OFFICIALS

Strokes and Turns Clinic

A clinic will be held on Thursday, January 17 from 5:30 to 8:00 P.M. in the downstairs meeting room at CGAC. If you are interested then please sign-up on the website. This is a long clinic so grab something to eat and make plans for the kids. There will be no room for them at the clinic. If you have done the clinic before but have yet to work the position at a swim meet and would like a refresher then come out again for a review. There is a session credit for every person taking any clinic for the first time.
