Coach’s Segment


Team Building: It was great to see those of you who participated in the team travel trip bond as a team. We had a great time and it was really one of those experiences you will remember for a long time as well as one where our team and the relationships we have become hardened.

LCM Summer Meet Schedule: The summer event schedule is posted on the website both on the Events & Swim Meets page as well as the group calendar

Athlete Gear: You can access the store following the link or from our home page on the website. We have everything on there discounted for LST. The password to access the team store is: golst

Locker Room: The locker rooms are available for changing before and after practice for the LST athletes. Here are a few more guidelines for locker room usage:

  • DO NOT store your bag in the locker room unless it is locked up. We are not the only people using the locker rooms. You may keep the bag on deck where it can be monitored more closely.
  • 5 minutes is the total change time allotted before and after practice. Please be respectful of the coaches’, teammates’, and parents’ time.
  • NO PHONES: refrain from using any phones in the locker room

Pick-up/Drop-off: Pick up and drop off will be at door number 8. Parents, please remind your athletes to change and go directly to the pool deck to meet for dryland. For pick-up, our expectation is that the athletes get picked up within 10 minutes of the practice finishing. If you have an athlete that will be picked beyond the ten minutes after practice, the swimmer must report to the pool deck and the parents must come in to pick up their swimmer. We cannot monitor the back hallway at all times so for the safety of our athletes, please try and pick up your kids in a timely manner.

New Members: To all the new members, welcome to the best swim club in the Indianapolis area! If you have not yet done so, please email coach Joel (joel.elber@gmail.com) a copy of your birth certificate to go along with your first registration.

Safe Sport: Athletes and parents, make sure you participate in USA swimming’s safe sport training:  Safe Sport Athlete Training and Safe Sport Parent Training.
