New from the 2019 MLA LCM Registration:

Please read through the following before you continue with registration:


The biggest change you will notice in this year's registration is are a few additional practice groups added to our structure.  These additions are in response to exciting new growth for the program, allowing us to accomodate more effective coach-swimmer ratios.  The White Group will continue with two levels as before - no changes.  Now, there will be a Red, Blue, & Black Group for 14&Unders, as well as Red, Blue, & Black Groups for 15&Overs.  You can check out Group Descriptions by clicking here.


Finally, remember when you go to register, please make sure you are signed out of your account.  Click the Begin MLA Registration button below the sign in.  Make sure all of your account information for *apparel sizes and *contact information and credit cards for your athlete/family are up-to-date.  Please register for the last group your swimmer was in and if you have a question about what group to register to please email:  jwhitehead@mlaswim.org
