Swim A Thon
The Swim A Thon was held Thursday evening and was quite a success.  Our swimmers were amazing and have logged over 1800 lengths so far!  We still have a few swimmers who will be swimming their laps during practice so the total will continue to rise!  If your swimmer would still like to participate it is not too late!!
University of Richmond Swim Clinics
We are excited to announce that Matt Barany – UR Women’s Swim Coach will be coming to Louisa to hold swim clinics next week.  The clinics are open to swimmers who can swim 50 yards without stopping and are reasonably proficient in all four strokes. (It will not be appropriate for Blellow swimmers and a number of Yellow swimmers – if you are unsure, please check with Coach Debra) The clinics have a limited number of participant spaces available and you must register with Coach Debra in order to participate.  Acceptance will be based on meeting the minimum requirements AND first come basis.  Participants should be available to attend ALL three sessions.  The normal LG practice schedule will be changed on the 7th & 8th to accommodate this clinic (practice schedule changes will be provided later this week!)  The schedule is as follows:
Sunday, July 6  Backstroke/Freestyle/Starts
Monday, July 7  Butterfly/Breaststroke/Starts
Tuesday, July 8  Starts & Turns
Clinic Times
6:30-7:30 PM    10 & Under
7:30-8:30 PM    11 & Up
The clinics are free to all participants although we will be accepting donations to the Natalie Lewis Memorial Fund.  Natalie was the UR swimmer who recently passed away in the balloon accident.  Registration for the clinic opens at 9:00 AM, Monday, June 30.  You must contact Coach Debra via email or text to reserve a spot for your swimmer!!
See you at the pool!
Coach Debra
