2018 Short Course Zone Championship in Webster, NY, March 29-31, 2018

The full meet information still is not out, but Kate Kudlac and Sharon Sowka have found a hotel and swimmers have begun booking rooms.  

We are all set for the Hilton Garden Inn in Pittsford, NY. That's where the CT team stayed the last two years.  

Kate Kudlac has been in touch with Carol Bartlett, the group sales manager, and she offered a rate of $132/ night ($17 cheaper than the regular rate per night because we are with the Zone meet).  You can cancel up to 24 hours before the stay.  If you are thinking about attending at all please book NOW.

Here is the direct link to the hotel website for the rate:

Here is the direct link to the cut off times: https://www.easternzoneswimming.org/meet_info/2018_EZ_SC_QualifyingTimes.pdf

Please check the cut off times.  We have MANY swimmers with qualifying times.

Important information about the Zone meet:

1) LEHY is attending as a team and sending a coach, but we are not traveling as a team.
2) Parents will be responsible for transporting swimmers to the meet, while at the meet, and home from the meet. They will also be responsible for all meals for their swimmers.  We would like to do team meals, but we do not know the format of the meet yet.  (Like other travel meets- MIT for example).
3) We are hoping that CT Swimming comes through and monetarily supports teams attending the meet, however if this does not happen, there may be and additional cost to attend Zones to cover team expenses as this meet was not in the LEHY budget. The cost per swimmer would depend on how many swimmers attend.

Eastern Zone swimming is still trying to figure out how many team are interested in attending this meet. There may be bonus times if swimmers make cuts. The format they are running this year is a ONE year deal. We do not know what the format will be in the future.

We are looking forward to our swimmers being able to go to the meet and representing LEHY instead of CT Swimming and we want it to be a great experience for them!!!

And the list goes on and on. GIFT CARDS are always a big hit.
Popular Gift Cards:

An email was sent earlier in the season and information was posted about CT Championship meet requirements on the website back on September 20th. With only a few meets left before championships we want to make sure everyone understands the requirements and has the qualifications. It can be confusing because not all the meets we go to are CT Sanctioned meets but CT Approved meets.

Championship Meet Requirements for 2018 CT Championships:

Regionals Championships- Compete in a minimum of 1 CT Sanctioned Meet
Age Group Championships- Compete in a minimum of 1 CT Sanctioned meet
CT Senior Championships- no meet requirement

Meet requirement for CT Scholar Athlete for 2017-2018 will most like be as followed:
Applicant must have participated in an individual event in the summer 2017 Long Course Connecticut Senior Championship meet or the 2018 March Connecticut Senior Championship. Applicants also may qualify if they participated in two (2) regularly scheduled CSI sanctioned meets during the 2017 long course season and three (3) regularly scheduled CSI sanctioned meets during the 2017-2018 short course season.

Information for 2017-2018 is not out yet for scholar athlete, but here is the link from this years so you can see what it will be like: https://www.ctswim.org/Customer-Content/www/CMS/files/Recognition/17scholarAppGuidelines.pdf

Thank you all for understanding and handling a situation that is out of our control. We hope the EHHS pool will only be shut for one week

We are going to make a change to the Friday practice since so many people want to head down to Wilton Friday night.

Practice on Friday, November 17th will be at East Hartford Middle School, from 4:30-6:30 pm. We will be sharing the pool with the other kids and it will be fine. This practice change will be for this coming Friday only.

We found out at 7:30 pm last night that the East Hartford High School pool would be closing after Girls State Championships on Saturday, November 11th for the minimum of a week (Monday, November 13-Sunday, November 19, 2017). There is a major leak in the pool, and they are replacing the filtration pump. Fixing it now will be a really good thing, but it means we will be displaced during the construction. While they say it will only be a week, I have made sure we are covered beyond that in case things go long. For example, if EHHS divers make State Open Championships, there is a chance that the construction will not begin until Wednesday, November 15th. IF this happens I will immediately email everyone and put information up on the website. I will also text all for whom I have numbers.

That being said, we have already secured pool time at other locations and the kids will not miss a day. Unfortunately the practice times are later than what they are use to, but it will only be for a short time and in my mind it will be good practice for them as it is similar times to what they would swim at finals.

We were able to keep the group together with the exception of Thursdays. Thursdays will be split into two practice groups due to the fact that we only have 3 lanes to practice in.

I have attached an updated November calendar, however I have also listed practice locations below. We will follow the schedule below until I have been informed that the work on the pool has been completed. I look forward to the day we can send the email saying....WE ARE GOING HOME!

Beginning Monday, November 13, 2017 until further notice:
Mondays- Practice at Wethersfield High School (411 Wolcott Hill Rd, Wethersfield, CT): 7:40-9:30 PM
Tuesdays- Practice at East Hartford Middle School: 7:00-8:45 PM
Wednesdays- Practice at Wethersfield High School: 7:40-9:30 PM
Thursdays- Practice at Indian Valley YMCA (Ellington YMCA- 11 Pinney St, Ellington, CT)
-This practice will be split into two groups: Group 1 (5:45-7:15 PM), Group 2 (7:15-8:45 PM)
Fridays- Practice at East Hartford Middle School: 7:00-8:45 PM

There have been multiple requests for a second order of the LEHY Warm Up jackets and pants that were purchased through Metro Swim Shop. They really did come out looking nice. And the price is right.

CLICK HERE for the order form. It is due TO Kaeley with payment, by Saturday, October 28th at 3:00 pm. Checks only will be accepted. Kaeley will be at the high school pool all week for practice or you can give it to her Saturday.

If you are still interested in getting the team suit you can do so directly through Debbie Cosme at Metro Swim Shop. If you contact her THIS WEEK she may be able to get you your suit by this weekend (Metro Swim Shop/Debbie Cosme will be at our pool for the Aquafest).  Her email address is: dcosmemetroswimshop@gmail.com.

Debbie said if you are ordering the warm up jacket you should SIZE UP, as they run small, especially the female jacket because it is fitted.

This will be the last team order this season. Bags and parkas are not available in this order.

CLICK HERE for information from tonight's Parent Informational meeting.

We are a volunteer organization and we need your help to continue to keep our program great!!!
What do we need?

OFFICIALS- we always need parents to step up and become USA Swimming Officials. It is a great way to learn about the sport and be right on the pool deck. Any LEHY official would be happy to talk to you about the process and I will snd out information about clinics as it becomes available. Time and again, our officials have stepped up to help at meets and keep our timing assignments to a minimum.

PARENTS WILLING TO LEARN TIMING SYSTEM (COLORADO)- Best seat in the house at a swim meet! This is the equipment that runs the timing system at our meets. We need people to train and learn the system. We have experienced people who are ready to teach you. It is not difficult and a MUCH needed position when hosting our meets.

PARENTS WILLING TO LEARN THE COMPUTER SYSTEM- Collects all the data from the meet and is a pretty easy system to use once you know it. People can learn it in one weekend! WE have experienced people who are ready to teach you!

LEHY CONCESSIONS- Concessions are a big fundraiser for us and right now we have one family in charge of it all. We would really like two or three families to work with concessions to spread out the responsibilities!

End of the season Championship Meet Requirements:
In order for swimmers to compete in Championship meets, they must have swum in a minimum number of CT Swimming sanctioned meets.  LEHY offers plenty of opportunities to meet the requirements.  Out of state meets, Y Meets and Off Calendar Meets (UCONN Invite in December), do not count towards the meet requirement, BUT the times will count for championships.  Any questions please ask a coach.

Championship Meet Requirements (based upon last year as the meet announcements for this year's championships are not posted yet):
Regionals Championships- Compete in a minimum of 1 CT Sanctioned Meet
Age Group Championships- Compete in a minimum of 1 CT sanctioned meet
CT Senior Championships- no meet requirement

CHANGE TO Eastern Zone All Star Championship
- For those who know about "Zones" the meet is changing.  For the short course season only, it will no longer be a CT Team trip and there are cut off times.  Individual teams are responsible for the entries and attending the meet.  We will be getting more information on the changes at the CT Swimming House of Delegates meeting this weekend and let everyone know. This information that was announced last night at the CT Swimming Board of Directors Meeting is a BIG change that we were not planning on or for.  We will be getting more information on the changes at the CT Swimming House of Delegates meeting this weekend and will let everyone know where LEHY stands on the meet.

LEHY Meets:
YMCA Dual meets are considered mandatory meets, so please look at the schedule and keep those dates in mind. All other meets will have sign up deadlines. The meet sign up process will be explained at the Parent Meeting on September 29th. If you cannot make the meeting please seek out a seasoned parent or coach to explain the process. If sign up deadlines are missed we will not be able to enter your swimmers in meets.

Also remember, this season meet entry fees will be done differently. Families will be billed for entry fees after the entry is done. All entry fees for meets being held in the 2017 calendar year are due by December 15th. All entry fees for meets held in 2018 are due before championships. Championships will be billed after the entries are done.

Please do not hesitate to ask questions and talk to the coaches. We are here to help you.
