For over 20 years the Lakewood Lightning Swim Team has provided an all-around positive experience for our children by improving their swimming skills, giving them lots of exercise, AND lots of fun. The swim team season generally runs from May through June. The swim team program is known for its team spirit, festive social events, excellent swimming instruction and good sportsmanship.
Swim team membership is available to any member of the Lakewood Resident’s Club including year round and summer members. Swimmers range in age from 4-18 and swim in groups divided by gender and age as of May 31st. It is one of the few sports where a 4 year old and a 17 year old are teammates! The older swimmers are very positive role models and many life-long family friendships are forged through swim team.
Lakewood Lightning, currently in Division West 4 (W4), is a member of the Northwest Aquatic League (NWAL). NWAL is an organization that promotes novice level swimming. Teams are placed in their respective divisions based on team size, location, and win-loss records. Visit www.nwal.org for more information.
