2014-2015 Fall/Winter Registration

630 Rockland St
Lancaster, PA 17602

Welcome to 2014-2015 Fall/Winter Registration at the Lancaster Aquatic Club. 

LAC provides instruction for swimmers of all ages and abilities, ranging from beginners to National qualifiers.  We run an Individual Medley based program with a focus on all four strokes.  In our younger age groups, we promote the sport of swimming with a heavy focus on technique and a requirement that the swimmers have a lot of fun!  As swimmers progress through the various training groups including Senior Group, the core values of Individual Medley training, dry-land training and technique continue.   As swimmers reach the Senior Group, we expect a serious commitment to the sport so we can help each athlete realize their full potential.  The Mission of Lancaster Aquatic Club is to demonstrate a tradition of swimming excellence through Leadership, Achievement and Commitment.

We are pleased to offer electronic payment processing and registration.  The process is simple for both new and returning members.  You will get access to your own private account that will enable you to easily declare for swim meets, sign-up for jobs, see your children’s swim times’ history, maintain your own contact information and more.

For existing members or anyone who previously registered with LAC (via a clinic registration or previous season registration), log into the web site by choosing SIGN IN on the left menu bar.  Once logged in, click the Spring/Summer '14 Registration button to the right of the photo slide show.  If you have forgotten your password, please do not attempt to register using a different email address.  Click on the link at the bottom of the sign-in page to reset your password.
