Meet of Champs, Team Party and All Stars!

Thursday, July 6th – Meet of Champions! MOC is held at the Don Cook Natatorium. Click here for the map page showing the location: http://lostts.org/maps/

Meet of Champions is divided into two sessions. Swimmers in the 10 & Under groups swim in the morning (6:45 am arrival, 8:00 am start) and 11 & Older groups swim in the afternoon (1:45 pm arrival, 3:00 pm start). We’re not sure where our teams will be set up under tents, but will try to have signage showing where we are. As always, only those who signed up to be an age group tent parent for THIS MEET and who have completed the league background check will be allowed under the swimmer tents. No additional adults will be permitted under the tents other than volunteers who signed up for this meet, regardless of background check status. Our priority is to shade the swimmers. 

Seating will be outdoors, and parents will be allowed to come inside to see their swimmer’s race but will not be able to stay inside on the bleachers. Two divisions (10 teams) will be using the facility at the same time and there is not enough indoor seating for all. There will be some method of communicating events so you can come inside to see your swimmer race. This could be a Meet of Champs Remind group or manual event turners throughout the tent areas or loudspeakers outside or a combination of these. The team will try to bring extra tents for parent seating, but if you’ve got a pop up tent plan to bring it.

Volunteer sign up for the morning (all swimmers in age groups 10 & Under) is here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b044baba62e5-20177

Volunteer sign up for the afternoon (all swimmers in age groups 11 & Older) is here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b044baba62e5-20176

The Meet of Champions is used to determine who advances to All Stars – if your swimmer will NOT be available to go to All Stars, you must let us know by signing up here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b044baba62e5-2017

Friday, July 7th – No Practice!

Saturday, July 8th – Team Party at 5:00 pm! Meet at the pavilion, bring a chair and enjoy the awards presentations. Who will win a coveted paper plate award? Bring your swimmer’s shirt (be sure the name is inside!) and drop it at the stars table to have stars from the last two meets and Meet of Champions applied. If you’ve helped with stars during the season, please come join us at the table so we can get them all done quickly.

Monday, July 10th – Practice only for those who are going to All Stars. Swimmers who are called up to All Stars (not auto-advancers) will be notified by a coach. Times TBA.

Tuesday, July 11th – All Star Meet for All Star Qualifiers! Same schedule and location as Meet of Champions.

If you got this far, thank you! See you at the pool!

Great First Practice!

And we’re off! We had a great first practice yesterday and we’re looking forward to seeing the amazing progress our swimmers will be making over the coming days and weeks. It’s not easy getting back into shape after taking time off, so it’s important to encourage your swimmer to keep at it. Get into the habit of sending your swimmer to the pool with a water bottle. It’s hard work to swim for the whole practice time and having a water bottle on deck minimizes the need for the swimmer to leave the water during practice.

Keep up the great work, and we’ll see you at the pool!

Team Social and First Practice

We are looking forward to seeing everyone on Sunday, May 7th from 5-7 pm at the pavilion next to the Marina Pool. Join us for karaoke, popcorn and sno cones and parents can get any questions you may have answered.  Plus, don’t miss your opportunity to “buy-it-now” in our home meet parking spot auction!

Afternoon swim practice begins Monday, May 8th. Click here for our practice schedule.

New swimmers must bring a copy of their birth certificate to practice and everyone should check in at the table in the breezeway on the way in to practice. We can’t wait to get the season under way!

Let’s go, Lake O!
