Welcome back from your mini-break everyone...time to get right back to work.  There are only 5 weeks until Regionals, 7 weeks until Eastern Canadians, and 9 weeks until Provincials.  For many of you, based on your December results, it is necessary to re-visit and re-set your goals...HIGHER...WAY TO GO!!  Keep in mind as you do this that the time is short, and you must take your training to a new level if you want to take your racing to a new level.  Best wishes to everyone for a happy and healthy 2014 - GO LAC GO!

CONGRATULATIONS to Julia Blaha, Leah Polito, David Hickey, Alexander Pedda, Maggie MacNeil and William Stewart for their selection to, and participation in, the Mustang Regional Training Centre Development Camp on Sat.Dec.21 at Western University.


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.

All Development Families, please be aware you are required to donate a food item (minimum $10 value) for the 12&Under meet, whether or not your child is swimming. Keep an eye on the website for the sign-up list to choose a food item to donate. It will need to be dropped off at CGAC by Friday Jan 17th and you will need to initial the list in the kitchen to confirm that your item has been dropped off. Thank you so much for your help in making another LAC-hosted meet a successful one! Please email me if you have any further questions.

The Intro to Para Swimming program has been opening the world of competitive swimming to children and teens with a disability for the past few seasons. The program is open to anyone regardless of experience (when necessary and possible, in water assistance is provided). The ultimate goal of the program is to help swimmers with a disability build their skills and confidence to a level at which they feel comfortable moving into an integrated competitive swimming program. It is with great pride that we have had 4 swimmers move on to other training groups within LAC.
The next session of the program begins January 10, 2014. If you know of anyone who may be interested in improving their swimming skills and having a good time doing it, please invite them to email for more information.



There will be a Timer’s Clinic on Friday January 10 at CGAC in the upstairs meeting room from 5:30-7:30pm, and a Strokes & Turns Clinic on Saturday January 11 from 11:30am-2:00pm at CGAC, also in the upstairs meeting room. Sign-ups will be posted soon.
