Welcome to Lakewood
A proud member of Southern California Swimming and USA
mission at Lakewood Aquatics is to provide young athletes
with a safe and enjoyable environment that will encourage them to
learn about the sport of swimming and to achieve their highest
potential in aquatic competition.
Lakewood Aquatics is an organization of incredible coaches,
inspiring young swimmers and involved parents. Through
practices, meets, and special events the swimmers develop
confidence in themselves, pride in their team and make lifelong
friends with their teammates. The experience cannot be duplicated
and after you've visited the website and pool, we're sure you'll
want to be a part of Lakewood Aquatics too!
Lakewood Aquatics is a
year-round swim program for children of all ages. We provide a
safe, healthy environment for kids to learn the benefits of
committment, teamwork and personal goal setting through competitive
The team is comprised of eight groups which are seperated by age.
At the try out the coach will decide whether or not a child will
need to temporarily attend workouts with swimmers in a different
age group in order to learn proper sroke techniques.
Occasionally it is necessary for a child to enroll in our Learn To
Swim Program prior to joining the competitive team.
Please refer to the Calendar page for workout and swim meet
information. Each group requires a different level of
committment and thus attending practice on a regular basis a must.
It is important for the entire family to understand the necessary
committment and support the swimmer.
After your initial tryout you will have 3 consecutive days to train
with the group that the coach has decided is best for you.
The training schedule is posted on the Calendar page. There
are occasional changes, so listen for coach announcements and read
anything posted on the website or via email. Swim gear or
'special' swim suits are not needed for the trial period but
goggles are highly recommended. Swimmers with long hair
should pull it back in a pony tail or wear a swim
The coaches evaluate new
swimmers for the team Monday - Friday evenings at 5:30 pm at
the Cerritos College Aquatics Center. Ask for
