COACHES REPORT

GOOD LUCK to everyone at our Nothers Invitational this weekend.  Remember, "Luck lies at the intersection of PREPARATION and OPPORTUNITY."  Whether things go well or not so well, this weekend is a first glimpse at where you are in your training, what you have been doing well and what you need to continue working on (or start working on) for the next time. Remember your T-shirt rotation: royal on Day 1, orange on Day 2, and navy on Day 3 (if you have them). And remember this is "our house" - so let's show lots of spirit, and let's make sure we have the best turns in the meet! Make sure as well of the following 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!

LAC EQUIPMENT

The new shipment of LAC bathing caps have arrived. Mary Allen will have caps for sale in the official’s room at the Nothers Meet this weekend.

 

SWA MUSTANG INVITATIONAL DEC. 7-8

This new meet (taking place at Western U.) has been added to our competition schedule as a racing opportunity for Senior and Age Group swimmers unable to attend the Pointe Claire Invitational. Some Development swimmers will be invited to attend - check with your coach if you are interested.

 

POINTE CLAIRE INVITATIONAL DEC.12-16

The meet information and list of current qualifiers for this meet is posted in the Upcoming Events section of the website. It is a team travel event - we will be travelling by bus to Pointe Claire, departing CGAC early on Thu.Dec.12 and returning early on Mon.Dec.16. We will be staying at the Quality Suites, 6300 Trans-Canada Highway, Pointe Claire, QC, H9R 1B9 (tel: 514-426-5060). Approximate total cost will be $350. If you are not on the current list of qualifiers, you can still qualify at our November meets.

 

OFFICIALS REPORT

Over the last two weeks we held 2 Timekeeper and 2 Stroke&Turn clinics - as a result we now have 10 new Strokes&Turns officials and 28 new Timekeepers and Safety Marshalls. Thank you and congratulations to everyone who attended these clinics. Also, 9 online clinics have been taken so far this season - it's nice to see people taking advantage of this convenient way to learn about officiating.

The online sign-up for the Nothers Meet is now closed but we can still use more Stroke and Turn Officials on Saturday and Sunday afternoons and there are assorted slots available throughout the weekend. If you can help out please contact Mary Allen at marydan@bigbill.ca

We can also use more senior officials. We require one Chief Timer and 2 Clerks of Course on Friday for the 13/over distance session from 10:00am-1pm and 2 Chief Timers and one Clerk of Course on Friday for the 13/over 50s from 4:30-6pm. If anyone is qualified and can help with any of these senior positions please contact Denise McDonald, Meet Referee at mcdonald.denise.e@gmail.com

Just a reminder, if you are a high school student, you are eligible to collect volunteer hours for working at any swim meet and you can earn your family a session credit if it is a LAC meet. Bring your volunteer forms and see Margaret Marshall or Denise McDonald in the meet office on the pool level after the session.

See you at the meet!
