WORKOUT CHANGES

There will be NO in Water Workouts until the Ontario Lockdown has been lifted.

Dryland workouts are listed on the LAC-TIVE Home Fitness Page on the LAC website. Please note, effective Feb 1,  Mon-Wed-Fri cardio sessions have reverted to 4-5pm for Senior groups and 5:15-5:45pm for Junior groups.

Membership fees will return to full rate after we return to in water workouts.

 

COACHES REPORT

It appears we will be heading back to our pools late next week or the week of Feb 22. WHOOP!!!WHOOP!!! Stay tuned for more information but we are currently working on the assumption that we will return to the practice schedule exactly as we left it back in late December, with all of the same protocols & procedures, as well as group and lane assignments, in place. If there are changes to this, they will be communicated to you.

A reminder about the Mindset Matters workshop with Penny Oleksiak tomorrow, Wed Feb 10, from 7:00-8:30pm.  The sign up link is here: https://www.mindsetmasters.ca/courses/pennyoleksiak   More information on Mindset Masters can be found at: www.mindsetmasters.ca

Also, a reminder that GOSWIM TV has asked that we all download and rate their new free app (which includes 7 videos weekly) with as many stars as possible.  GOSWIM is in the soft launch phase of the app, and is asking their friends and partners to help get them into the search engines.   https://goswim.app

FUNDRAISING

There are two fundraising events planned for the spring:

1) We are planning to undertake 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]
