WORKOUT CHANGES

We are back in the water - hooray! The Gibbons Park practice schedule for June is posted on the website. Unfortunately, renovations to the Thames Park Pool are on-going, which means we will only be swimming at Gibbons Park during June. On Mon June 28 and Tue June 29 we have been told there will be no pool time available to us due to necessary staff training for all City of London pool staff. We are hopeful that Thames will be "on-line" at the start of July, and a new schedule will be in place through to July 25. The Canada Games Aquatic Centre, and all indoor pools, are not scheduled to re-open until Stage 3 of Ontario's latest plan, which will be the end of July. Thereafter, our senior swimmers will be offered an optional additional 3 weeks of training through Sat Aug 14, at an additional cost. Everybody please ensure you are following protocols, and please walk with a teammate or family member oir other "buddy" when you are moving between the Gibbons parking lots and the pool.

The revised virtual dryland program for June - check the LAC-tive Home Fitness tab on the website for links to all virtual dryland programming.

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.
