Practice cancellations will be communicated through OnDeck push notifications and email moving forward. It seems the push notifications aren’t reaching everyone (based on feedback from yesterday). We will be adding a backup timer volunteer job soon (and possibly a few others)....

We are currently maintaining a waitlist while we await additional information from the Delmarva Swim Association and local authorities.

Dear Members, We hope this email finds you and your families safe and healthy. Please be advised that any decisions regarding the 2020 LYC Swim Team and 2020 LYC Sailing Camp/Advanced Sailing are currently on hold. As we all know, things are changing rapidly.

However, the reality is that either way, people will be altering schedules as they relate to school, vacations, other camps and commitments, finances,...
