The Helena Lions Swim Team (HLST) is a year-round competitive swim team for all levels of swimmers. HLST was organized in 1973 as a parent-run, non-profit organization and has continued to grow in size with approximately 100 team members today. When a swimmer becomes a member of the team, they learn the values of sportsmanship and teamwork. Swimming provides physical, emotional and intellectual skills that will last a lifetime.

If your child is between the ages of 6 and 18, can follow instructions, swim the entire length of a 25 yard pool without stopping, and absolutely loves to swim they should consider joining the HLST. For more information please contact our Head Coach Brian Brown at

HLST Mission: HLST is a community-based competitive swim team challenging swimmers to achieve personal excellence in swimming and in life.
