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 the change in times for our Mon-Wed-Fri CARDIO workouts, effective tomorrow (Wed.Jan.13). This change has been implemented to better provide for age-appropriate and easier-to-monitor training. Time changes are on the LAC-tive Home Fitness tab.

COACHES REPORT

Here we are in Week #3 of the provincially-mandated lockdown...steady as we go. Imagine your swimming career as a long road, and know that you have lots of fast swimming on that road out there ahead of you, but we just happen to be on a part of the road that is filled with potholes and delays. All you can do is what you can do, with 100% attention and 100% determination and 100% positivity. Smile. Laugh. Give a friend or family member a word of encouragement. Hang in there! EVERYONE, not just LAC, is dealing with the same circumstances.

 “Adversity is another way to measure the greatness of individuals. I never had a crisis that didn't make me stronger.” – Lou Holtz (legendary football coach) 

A reminder about proper behaviour on Zoom dryland sessions: 1.You are there to get sweaty and/or stronger. 2.Your camera must be ON, so the coaches can watch for proper form...and they ARE watching! Position your camera so the coaches can see your entire body. 3.Your microphone must be OFF. Once the workout begins, the dryland coach is the only one talking. 4. use the CHAT function ONLY to ask important questions about the workout 5. Do NOT draw on the screen, ever. 6. Once the workout begins, NO CELLPHONES. You can't use your cellphone in swim practice, so no CELLPHONES in dryland.  

IT’S OFFICIAL!​

EQUIPMENT

All group swim equipment information can be found on our website when you are logged in: https://www.teamunify.com/team/canlac/page/swimmer-equipment.

ALL TIDES

There will NOT be a bulk order at the end of January, due to manufacturing restrictions with AllTides suppliers. A reminder that any individual swim equipment purchases you make on the AllTides site 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]
