I hope someday, soon all the alumni will join in have a reunion type swim meet!
Thank you thank you to the Otters of 2019! The Peghers finally got to use our new snowblower that you donated with the Flamingos. We miss you and look forward to swimming with you again in the future!
Runner friends,
Owen has created a virtual 5K to raise money for United Way’s Lebanon Community Fund which helps local community members impacted by Covid-19. The 5K is by donation only, give what you can, the money will go directly to the United Way community fund. Spread the word if you aren’t a runner you can walk or just donate. Thanks in advance and help me spread the word!

*you can run on your own anytime from 4/18/20-5/3/20. Remember social distancing while you run. 😊
Practicing for summer swim meets.
I'm not sure who shot all of the videos and photos along with the editing, but you definitely deserve a round of applause!! 💛

What a great time, well deserved event for our hard working and dedicated OTTERS!
Good luck this weekend, Otters! Stay cool, and swim fast!
Throwback! Cleaning out my parents basement.
Do you or someone you know like to run? Come out on March 30th and support LHS class of 2021 with their 1st annual 5K! Three of our swimmers are in this class, Owen Sheetz, Solia Horn and Claudia Parker. You can help their class raise money to lower the costs for their senior year; Prom tickets, class trip, yearbook and any other costs they will have senior year. If you don’t like to run, walkers are welcome! The course is along the Lebanon Valley Rails to Trails and starts and stops behind LHS! It’s an easy flat course! Hope to see you there!!!
Otters ROCK!
The generosity of our families is amazing!! Thanks to all of you, The Palmyra Aquatic Club and Lebanon Valley Otters are able to donate $225 and quite a bit of non-perishable foods to The Caring Cupboard’s Summer Lunch Program!

Concession Ideas;

We would really love to be able to open our "Otters Snack Shack" this summer for swim meets and possible All Star meet. We are looking for lots of ideas to do this as safe as possible. If you have been places like baseball, softball, soccer, track meets, etc... and their snack bar is open:

1. what is on their menu? (breakfast, lunch, drinks, snacks, etc...)

2. what kind of precautions are they using? (masks , gloves, single serve items, all prepackaged items, # of people in the area, etc...)

3. what are your favorite items to buy at our snack snack or other snack bars? (breakfast, lunch, drinks, snacks)

4. what items would you like to add to our menu and what items would you like to see leave?

Please email us before Saturday, 6/5 with you replies

[05/25/21]   News Title: Clearances
News Date: 05/25/2021
Several volunteer positions require that volunteer to have current up to date clearances.

All coaches, board member, officials (ref, starter, stroke & turn), meet marshals and the line up people require clearances.

All other positions do not require clearances but we recommend you get them.

You can email your clearances to Irene Reedy our summer VP

[email protected]

or hand a paper copy to her during practice.

Irene will be at the younger swimmers practice almost every day.

Also if you are fully vaccinated and would like us to know that you are vaccinated, please let Irene know in person or send her an email. This is NOT mandatory and is NOT required!!!

Please make sure your name is on your email/paperwork and please include your swimmers name if your last name is not the same as your swimmers.

Volunteer Clearance links are found on our website under the "links" tab along the top. You only need to complete the "child abuse clearances" and the "PA state police clearances" if you live in PA. if you moved in the last couple of years from another state you will need to complete the "FBI clearances"

Thank you!!!

Good evening,

The MPSL would like to give everyone a friendly reminder we have an officials training today (2nd of 3 offerings). It's at 7:00 PM (ZOOM details below).

NO PRE-REGISTRATION, but we will need them to send information in ZOOM chat.

As a reminder: all of your team's officials (even if they have another certification like PIAA, USA, YMCA, etc.) should attend if they plan to work a meet this summer.

If you have folks that still have their official's badges for MPSL please have them let us know at the upcoming trainings. We will be collecting badges at the conclusion of the seasons now so please let your officials know this and plan appropriately for collections. We will only be handing out badge ids, they will be responsible for their own lanyards moving forward for sanitary purposes.

If they can't attend Wednesday May 19th, the last will be Thursday June 10th at 7:00 PM. While it should take an hour, please have folks plan for up to 90 minutes of their time just to be safe.

Please share the ZOOM link below with those on your team. There is a passcode and they should have the ability to view videos during the training.

Hello all Otter Parents!!!

Welcome to summer 2021. I'm looking forward to all of our children being able to get into the water and swim again. What a year to take over as league president!! It has been a year of challenges but we are a strong otter team and MPSL league and we will prevail.

We are all looking forward to a great summer season and hopefully if COVID behaves and numbers decline we should have a successful season and hopefully a post season.

As we prepare for the season I am putting out a request for an increase in the number of officials to help run our meets. At a minimum we should have 2 PIAA officials at every meet and then MPSL certified officials to help them out. The more PIAA officials that we have the better. It would give officials a chance to rotate out which is welcomed on a hot day!! Otters have a reputation for running a well organized meet and we would like to continue this tradition. I am asking parents to please consider becoming a PIAA official. I am willing to help you past the test and will keep you updated on all the latest information. At the very least please consider an MPSL official designation which would qualify you to be a stroke and turn judge.

Trainings/MPSL certifications are going to be via Zoom this year so you can attend from your couch with a drink in hand if necessary!!! Then once the season gets started you are welcome to shadow another official until you become comfortable.

Please consider attending the MPSL training and getting a PIAA certification.
I would be happy to answer any questions. My contact information is Maureen Rudy [email protected] 717-926-3520.

Here is the information for the zoom meeting. Please send me a text or email confirming which session you will attend.

MPSL is hosting Official Trainings for 2021. We are asking that all of your team's officials (even if they have another certification like PIAA, USA, YMCA, etc.) to attend if they plan to work a meet this summer.

If you have folks that still have their official's badges for MPSL please have them let us know at the upcoming trainings. We will be collecting badges at the conclusion of the seasons now so please let your officials know this and plan appropriately for collections. We will only be handing out badge ids, they will be responsible for their own lanyards moving forward for sanitary purposes.

Training will be held on Tuesday May 11th, Wednesday May 19th, and Thursday June 10th at 7:00 PM. While it should take an hour, please have folks plan for up to 90 minutes of their time just to be safe.

Summer registration is open!!!

Hi Otter families!
We are so ready to see all of you again and are excited that it appears that the 2021 summer swim season is going to actually happen! Although details are still being worked out, it is extremely important that you register as soon as possible this year This will aid us in practice planning and protocols. Mary and I would greatly appreciate it!
Summer is coming! See you soon!
Mary and Jim

WELCOME TO SUMMER SWIM SEA*ON 2021

This year’s registration deadline is May 15th, 2021. Registration will be completely online this year. In an effort to reduce contact, all registrations must be paid by credit card (processing fees have been waived). We are hoping to have our roster completed earlier this year, so please register by May 15th or contact an officer if there is a problem registering before that date. Registration must be completed by May 28th. In addition, you must register before you can practice and before you are added to our summer email list.

LVST Team Fees: Team Fees are due by May 28th. Team Fees include a $10 multi swimmer discount if paid by May 15th. LVST Team Fees, as well as A/C Pool membership, must be paid before swimmers may enter the water.

1 swimmer: $95
2 swimmers: $180
3 swimmers: $255
4 swimmers: $320
5 swimmers: $375
After May 15th, fees are as follows:

1 swimmer: $115
2 swimmers: $230
3 swimmers: $345
4 swimmers: $460
5 swimmers: $575
*PLEASE do NOT give registration/money to the coaches*

Annville-Cleona Pool Membership: To participate, each swimmer must also be a member of the A/C Pool. Membership forms are available on the pool website (www.annvillecleonapool.com ) or at the pool after Memorial Day. If you are new to the summer team or need more information about how to join the pool, you may contact Sarah Kreiser at [email protected]. A/C pool membership, as well as the LVST Team Fees, must be paid before swimmers may enter the water. Please allow 30 days for your check to clear. All AC Pool registrations must be mailed into the address on the membership form. LVST Swim Team can NOT accept any membership forms or payment for the AC pool membership.

Online Registration: We will be using online registation again this summer. Online registration will open to all swimmers on April 15th.



Everyone will need to do the following to register for the Otters swim team:

-Returning Winter 19-20 Families (if you have already created an account): Go to the Otters website, click on the "Registration" button, click on the green "Continue/Check Status" button, and sign into your account.

-Returning Families that did not swim for the Otters during Winter 2019-2020: Go to the Otters website, but DO NOT try to sign in first. Instead, click on the "Registration" button, click on the green "Continue/Check Status" button, enter your email and password and click on the blue "Continue" button.

-New Families (families that have never swam for LVST): Go to the Otters website, click on the "Registration" button, click on the green "Continue/Check Status" button, and then click on the green "Create New Account" button located underneath the section where existing users enter their username and password. This will allow you to add all the information about your swimmers and create a new account to register.

*New Families that have not swam recently, but swam for the Otters prior to Summer 2017, please contact Joanna Demchak at [email protected] before beginning online registration*

Once you have logged on or created an account, you will need to register your swimmers for the Summer season. There will be 1 group for Summer Season- “Competitive Team.” When completing the online registration, you will need to register all of your children at the same time to earn a multi swimmer discount. If you register one swimmer now and then try to register another swimmer later, you will NOT earn the multi swimmer discount.
Once you have reached the end of registration, you will receive a confirmation message telling you that your registration is compete. You must get this message or your registration will not be completely processed.
Registration this year must be paid by credit card during the Online Registration. This fee is to our team for operational team costs, pool equipment, and/or team gift.
Email Joanna Demchak at [email protected] if you need any help using the online registration.
Important Summer Information

COVID-19 Protocols: At this time, we will be following CDC Guidelines. All protocols and guidelines are subject to change. Current Outdoor guidelines- masks must be worn until entering the water and social distancing must occur.

Indoor Practice Schedule: At this time, we are uncertain if we will be able to practice indoors at LVC at the end of the school year.

Outdoor Practice Schedule: Outdoor practice will start in early June! Practice Groups and Times will be determined by Jim and Mary once we have registration numbers. Practice Groups will need to be strictly adhered to in order to maintain capacity limits at each practice. We request your cooperation with the practice groups as it is the only way the team will be able to have a season this summer.

Meet Schedule: As of now, the current plan is to have 5 meets on Saturday mornings. The potential date for our first meet is June 12th. Invitationals are unknown at this time. The complete meet schedule is not available at this time. Please check the website in the next few weeks for the schedule.

Otter Wear: Otter Wear will be available to order. An email will be sent out in the near future with the Otter Wear link.

Meet Sign-ups: Swimmers sign up to participate in dual meets at practice. Swimmers must sign up on the team website by Sunday of each week. To participate in Divisional Championships, swimmers must compete in three dual meets. Divisionals is a qualifying meet for the All-Star Meet, and the All-Star Meet is a qualifying meet for the Mid-Cap Meet. Swimmers who are not available to swim in All-Stars and/or Mid-Caps may swim in Divisionals but must note their unavailability for later meets on their Divisional events sign-up form.

Volunteer Expectations and Sign-ups: Volunteers are the backbone of all swimming events. Our swimmers can’t swim without you! An email will be sent prior to each meet with a link to our website in order for sign up home and away dual meets and for All-Stars. Volunteers are needed for both the home and away meets. We expect that at least one parent from each family will volunteer at each meet!

The 2021 MPSL All-Star Meet: At this time, we do not know what the post season championships will look like. In the past, we have hosted the MPSL All-Star meet and hope to again this year. This meet typically takes place on the Sunday of the second to last weekend in July (potentially July 25th this year). LVST’s role as the host of the MPSL All-Star Swimming Meet allows us to keep team fees low and avoid other fundraisers. Half of the proceeds of this meet help substantially fund our annual swim team budget. The other half of the proceeds helps us fund long-term equipment needs and allows us to make an annual contribution to the A/C Pool. Hosting this meet is a huge undertaking, and it requires the help of every Otter family. So, please fill out the enclosed All-Star Volunteer Form as part of your registration process. Note: Every family is asked to help set up and tear down for the All-Star Meet. Additionally, every family is asked to staff one of the many volunteer positions on meet day. For those vacationing on meet day and therefore unable to serve, we have some “leg work” positions that can be completed prior to All-Star weekend. If you are unable to serve on meet day, we ask that you volunteer for one of these positions.

All-Star Program Advertising Letter & Form: Included in your swim registration packet is a letter requesting program advertising in our All-Star Program. Our registration fees are very reasonable due to the money accrued from the advertisements and program sales. Each Otter family is strongly encouraged to sponsor an advertisement or sell an advertisement to a local business. If you are interested in helping with the program or in advertising in the program, e-mail [email protected].

Team Communication: Otter news is communicated in two ways: our website, www.swimotters.org, and weekly email from [email protected]. If you utilize a spam filter on your email program, be sure it allows email from this address.

Team suits and caps: We will be placing an order for team suits and caps through T&T swimming. The order form can be found under the "Documents" tab on our website. Order forms will be available soon and are due April 30th. If you have questions about sizing, ask a board member or experienced parent. Team suits are NOT required. Swimmers may wear whatever they wish to compete. Navy blue suits are encouraged and can be purchased many different places. Many families use SwimOutlet’s website.
