At LAC, our mission is to utilize swimming as a unique educational tool that will develop young people into leaders in their communities. We aim for perfection in thought, speech and action; steadfastly striving toward perfection will create young people who are a benefit to everyone around them.
LAC is committed to providing a safe environment for all participants. To do so we have athlete protection policies and guidelines in place that follow USA Swimming's Safe Sport MAAPP guidelines. More information about MAAPP can be found in our Safe Sport Tab. Our Expected Behavior Matrix is posted on our website and at our pool. Creating an environment where safe and positive behavior is expected makes us better in and out of the pool!
Since beginning with 13 athletes in 2007, LAC has steadily grown in size and achievement. We have qualified numerous athletes for National level competition and currently have several athletes in the top 50 in the country for their events and ages. We have had people in finals at US Olympic Trials, US National Championships, and US Junior National Championships. In 2019 we placed our first athlete on the US National Team, had another athlete make finals at Long Course Junior Nationals, securing an Olympic Trials time, and we had our highest ever virtual club championship scores in both short course and long course.
LAC is known as a team that develops swimmers for life with a focus on Excellence in Attitude, Effort, and Skill. Our PreSenior and Senior athletes participate in Yoga, Pilates, and regular mental training practice. Through a holistic approach, that values growth mindset, we are able to help develop young people who will continue improving in swimming through college. Our goal is to be pound for pound the best team in the world! It doesn't matter if an athlete is shooting for the Olympics, or for their first A time. Everyone who strives to be Excellent can help us reach our goal. If you enjoy a challenge, and always want to keep learning, we would love to have you on our team!
