2020-21 NEWSLETTER 21

 

WORKOUT CHANGES

CGAC swim practices will re-start this Saturday, February 20. The Boys&Girls Club (BGCL) practices will re-start on Friday, February 26. Unless otherwise communicated to you by your swimmer's group coach, all groups will follow the same pool practice schedule we were following in December before the 2nd lock-down commenced. There will be a few changes to the schedule this weekend because BGCL doesn't start until next Friday. The practice schedule can be found in the "SCHEDULES" tab on the website.

Virtual dryland workouts remain listed on the LAC-TIVE Home Fitness Page on the LAC website. Please note, effective Monday, Feb 22,  cardio cycling classes will continue to be offered, on Wednesdays from 4:00-5:00pm for AG Gold/Silver and all senior groups, and on Sundays, 10:15-10:45am for AG Blue, AG Bronze and AG Orange, and from 11am-noon for AG Gold/Silver and all senior groups. We encourage everyone to attend at least one of these complementary cardio sessions.

Membership fees will return to full rate upon our return to in-water workouts.

 

COACHES REPORT

Okay, starting back in the water this weekend! Make sure you take a close look at your practice schedule and know when you need to be where and, everyone please remember, we've been out of the water for 8 weeks, so TAKE IT EASY to start! Focus on your technique and the little things - it's going to take at least a couple of weeks for you to start feeling closer to "normal" in the water. Don't spend any time at all thinking about how fast you're swimming, only think about well you're swimming. The coaches are all really excited to see you all again in person - everyone has been doing an absolutely first-rate job in the virtual dryland since early January - bring that same focus and attitude back to the pool!

FUNDRAISING

There are two fundraising events planned for the spring:

1) We are running a used clothing drive in partnership with Valu Village - they accept clothing donations and pay the donor on a "per pound" basis. Please start gathering up any used clothing you wish to donate and put it in garbage bags. Clothing drop off will be in the Banting High School parking lot any time between 8-9am on Saturday April 17, where it will be loaded into a rented truck and delivered to Valu Village at 10am. 

2) our second North Country Meats fundraiser will happen this spring, with product delivery planned for Saturday May 15. The same protocols and procedures will be in place as for our first, very successful, campaign.

Stay tuned for more details on both of these great opportunities to help keep LAC financially viable in these uncertain times.

ALL TIDES

Please remember that any individual swim equipment purchases you make on the AllTides website using our LAC coupon code result in a kickback to the club, received at the end of the year. Last year the club received almost $1000 through this arrangement, most of which was put toward the purchase of dryland training equipment. You are helping the club by making your swim equipment purchases through AllTides. If you have any questions regarding All Tides orders or product concerns, please contact the following email address [email protected]
