WORKOUT CHANGES

NO Workouts Monday October 12 due to pool closure for Thanksgiving.

COACHES REPORT

CONGRATULATIONS everyone on a safe and successful first week back in the water. Certainly there have been some challenges, but everyone is staying calm, cool and collected. Our coaches, as well as City of London and Boys&Girls club facility staff, are doing their very best to ensure that the pool environment is keeping our swimmers safe and smiling.Fingers crossed, we will continue to move slowly forward and, with each passing week, will gain more confidence in the various protocols and procedures in place, even as they undergo changes.

More accolades have recently been received from Swim Ontario for some great LAC achievements and contributions: our Senior Bronze lead coach Jonathan Korchuk has been named the 2020 recipient of the Lea Bredschneider Volunteer Coach of the Year Award! Congratulations Jonathan, and thank you for your tireless efforts on behalf of our swimmers. Rose Bloch-Hansen has been inducted into the Swim Ontario Officals Honour Roll for her 20 years of volunteerism as a critical cog in the delivery of our hosted competitions. As you all know, without Rose in the office behind the scenes, our meets would not be held in nearly the high regard they are. Thank you Rose, and congratulations. Finally, Senior Gold swimmer Lauren Campbell has been awarded one of 12 annual Dan Taylor Team Aquatic Supplies regional scholarships, for her accomplishments both in the pool and in the classroom. Congratulations Lauren, keep up the aquatic and academic excellence! 

Swim Ontario will be hosting a virtual awards ceremony this week, at which time our LAC award winners will be formally acknowledged.

LAC VIRTUAL DRYLAND

Please sign into dryland with your first name, last name, and group for attendance sake. We also need your cameras on for supervising purposes. Thank you.

2020 AWARDS BANQUET

While circumstances will prevent us from hosting a live, in-person banquet this fall, we will still be acknowledging everyone's accomplishments last year, and handing out all of our traditional awards. Those swimmers who received annual trophies at our 2019 banquet are asked to return them (sanitized of course) to their coach as soon as possible.

EQUIPMENT

We encourage all swimmers to have an extra cap and goggles, the coaching staff will not be allowing swimmers to borrow caps and goggles at this time. If you require a new LAC swim cap, a coach will give your swimmer a new cap at work-out and we will add $12.00 to your swimmer account and it will be taken out of your account with your monthly fees. You can find your swim equipment information on our website when you are logged in: https://www.teamunify.com/team/canlac/page/swimmer-equipment.

Equipment orders can be placed on the All Tides website - https://www.alltides.com/en/ discount code: LAC20 (for 25% off). 

SPIRITWEAR

The team store is now open and will be open until October 4. LAC facemasks have been added to the store. The orders from All-Tides Team Store will take approximately 4 weeks and are expected to arrive in early November. Due to COVID-19 we will not be able to offer try-ons for the spiritwear this season but All-Tides has included a sizing chart to make the most educated decision for your swimmer.

The link to the team store for spirit wear is: http://www.aquamteamstore.com/login.aspx

SPEEDO FUNDRAISER

All-Tides and Speedo have partnered with Swim Canada to offer a small club fundraiser. For a period of two months starting Sept. 1, swimmers, parents, coaches and all swim fans will be able to raise funds for the club of their choice. A dedicated page can be found on the All Tides online store, where one can choose from a selection of Speedo products, and enter their club code when completing the purchase. Speedo will give the club 20 per cent of the total purchase amount. The club code to raise money for LAC is LAC. Unfortunately, we will not be able to customize the items ordered from this speedo fundraiser.

The speedo fundraiser is found here: https://www.alltides.com/en/speedoclub?p=1
