We are now on our final schedule of the season CLICK HERE to view.



Good luck to our 24 swimmers racing at Provincials in Brantford this weekend.

CONGRATULATIONS and BEST WISHES to all of our high-school-graduating swimmers and coaches, some of whom will be heading off to various universities and colleges in the fall: Paige Andersen, Robbie Brown, Karly Clair, Callie Coulter, Laura Hopkins, Emma Jackson, Nathan Lethbridge, Josef Liska Guzman, Jesse Liu, and Ericka Masse - you have ALL done a tremendous job of balancing your school commitments with the demands of our great sport, and you have all been great ambassadors, role models, teammates and performers for the London Aquatic Club. You are special people, because you are SWIMMERS! and you will experience many future successes because of the skill set and the mind set that swimming has instilled in you.



Just a reminder to get your Paul Hauch bell heat prizes in to your coaches or Anthony & Mimi Prier (Dev 2) to ensure our swimmers have a chance at a fun prize if they win their heat when the bell is rung.

One prize per family worth $5-10 and if there is anything extra you want to would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for making our last hosted meet a fun one for our swimmers!



Hello everyone! We are on the home stretch for the 2012/2013 LAC hosted meet season with the Dr. Paul Hauch Invitational, our final home meet of the season, running from July 12 to 14. I know that many of you have volunteered extensively this year but we still need officials for this fun season-ending meet. Please consider officiating for us, at least during your swimmer’s sessions. If you could give the people still looking for credits a few days to sign up and then help to fill in the open slots. Come on out and enjoy a few hours in the sun.

On the Saturday evening, following the afternoon Hauch session, the annual London Silver Dolphins Sunset Meet will be held at Thames Pool. Warm-up at 5:00, start at 6:00. If you are available to officiate at any level then please sign-up on the website. Proceeds from the Masters meet will be donated to LAC.

Just a reminder, if you are a high school student, you can get volunteer credits for working at any swim meet and you can earn your family a session credit if it is a LAC meet. Hauch is the last opportunity to help finish off your family’s session credit obligations (minimum age 14).
