COACHES REPORT

CONGRATULATIONS to all who participated in the SWA Mustang Invitational at Western U. last weekend. There were many good performances and lots of team spirit on display - well done. Special CONGRATULATIONS to first time Regional Championship qualifiers Hunter Brown, Rebecca Hynes and Ely Lemon-Nurse.

Our final 2 competitions on the fall calendar are this weekend, the Pointe Claire Invitational and the Holiday Time Trial. Good luck to everyone - race smart and race tough. And remember, whether you think you can or think you can't, you're right.

 

POINTE CLAIRE INVITATIONAL DEC.12-16

The team has been finalized. Please put your cheque for $350 (payable to LAC) in the LAC box at CGAC. Departure is 6am this Thu.Dec.12. You will NOT require your training equipment (fins, snorkel, paddles, pullbuoy, etc.) so leave it at home. However, bring your water bottle! Estimated return time is 4 am on Mon.Dec.16. And a big up-front THANK YOU to our 5 chaperones, for taking time away from their families and other responsibilities at this special time of year, to help our swimmers perform at their best.

 

12 & UNDER CELEBRATION

This meet takes place at CGAC and is for all LAC 12 & under swimmers. It is an excellent opportunity for our youngest swimmers to race. Sign up is available under the “events” tab on the LAC website.

 

MILTON DASH FOR CASH

This meet takes place at the Milton Sports Centre and all LAC 13 & overs are invited to attend. There are two sessions on Saturday and one session on Sunday. Team travel by bus will be available if there is sufficient interest. The bus will leave CGAC at 5:30am on both Sat and Sun, returning to CGAC at 9:30pm on Sat and 2pm on Sun. Saturday will include team lunch and possibly movie between the morning and evening sessions. Sign up is available under the “events” tab on the LAC website - please indicate if your swimmer requires team travel.

 

NOTES FROM THE TREASURER

Swimmer Account Statements

Swimmer statements were sent out over the weekend by e-mail to your login e-mail. Please let me know if you did not receive your statement. Included in the e-mail will be options for making payment. Details of the meet entries can be found under the "Swimmer A/Cs // Entry Summaries" tab when signed in on the website. Families are reminded that payment is due on receipt. As always, feel free to contact me at lac.treasurer@gmail.com if you have any questions about the postings on your account. For any questions requiring more than a simple e-mail, please see me at the pool or e-mail me so we can make arrangements to speak over the phone.

Note: Although the website has a billing option, we do not currently use it due to some technical reasons. We will be reviewing the billing function prior to the start of next season.

 

OFFICIALS REPORT

This Saturday, December 14th, is our Time Trial for swimmers not attending the Pointe-Claire meet. This will be a low key, fun event so I encourage all our new timers and stroke & turn judges to sign  up.

We are hosting the 12 & Under Celebration Meet on January 18-19.  I plan on having 1 Timer and 1 Strokes & Turns clinic prior to that event - dates to be announced next week. In the new year I plan to hold one clinic a month so we can go through the other Level II positions. Watch for those to be announced as we get closer to January.
