We are 11 days away from the Age Group Championships. Athletes need to start getting their bodies ready to race. Fueling and hydrating before competition are essential to replenish energy stores and optimize hydration status. I attached a great source of information about fueling your athletes for competition to this email. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions about it.
Please check your kid’s team apparel for the coming meets. It includes a RED, WHITE, and Blue LIAC t-shirt, LIAC shorts, warm-up pants, and a jacket. Please ensure your athletes have extra goggles and LIAC swim cap in their backpacks if needed. We want our athletes to be fully prepared to rock and roll.
With only a few official weeks of winter left, an approaching storm could finally bring some snow to New York. Please stay tuned for any unexpected changes to our practice schedule.
I hope everyone stays cozy, warm, and healthy!
Happy Hump Day!
I hope you all had a romantic Valentine’s day.
The AG1 results from CT and preliminary entries for the Age Group Champs are attached to this email. If your athlete wants to change an event, I will be happy to discuss it before or after our practice.
Congratulations to the new Age Group Champs qualifiers: Amelia Hsieh, Isaac Li, and Giorgia Wu! Excellent job, guys.
A special SHOUT OUT to Leah O’Connell, winning the 200 freestyle event with 2:09.35! This time puts Leah in the 7th place of 10 yrs-girls in the Nation! Way to Go, GIRL!
We have 22 days left before the Age Group Championships. AG1 group is in full swing of the preparation for the big meets. Every practice becomes an opportunity for your athletes to sharpen their skills and build confidence.
“Attention to detail is not about perfection. It’s about excellence, about constant improvement. “
Please continue encouraging your swimmers to eat nutritious food, stay hydrated, and sleep well.
I would like to acknowledge the efforts of AG1 swimmers at the practice last week. The kids were on fire! "If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself." – Henry Ford.
At this time of the season, it is essential for athletes to take vitamins, eat nutritious food and have a minimum of 8 hours of sleep to boost their performance in the pool. Eating a wide variety of foods, including whole grains, vegetables, fruit, dairy foods, alternatives, lean protein sources, and healthy fats, will help athletes to ensure that vitamin and mineral needs are met.
The whole family may need to get organized for healthy eating – this can offer an excellent opportunity to encourage good food and fluid intake for everyone!

Mon. 2/6: Dryland 4:15 - 4:45 pm, Swim 5:00 - 7:00 pm;
