From the Head Coach
Welcome to the Sudbury Laurentian Swim Club. As the Head Coach of SLSC, I feel a little pressure each day to try and keep the integrity of the program that Dr Tihanyi had created while building LUSC/SLSC into the powerhouse it became in the early '80s. In the last 4 years, we have become the dominant swim club in the North Eastern Region, but there is more work to do. Over the next year, recruiting will be a major focus. The simple truth is: we need to be bigger to get better.
Each day when I walk on pool deck I am greeted by one of the best swim groups I could ask to coach. I am very proud of them. I think I am fairly demanding, but my goal is to make THEM demanding of themselves. It serves no purpose if I want them to be better swimmers more than they want to be the BEST swimmers. My philosophy in trying to get our athletes to be their best is pretty simple: encourage the swimmers to take responsibility for their own swimming. It is theirs to discover, I am just the hired help.
SLSC has some of the best swimmers in the Province in certain disciplines and ages. Our younger swimmers are being coached well and learning the basic skills they will need to be GREAT senior swimmers. The club is on the rise -thanks for being part of it!
