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 numerous 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. We have placed an athlete on the National Team and on the National Junior Team. In 2021 we were granted Level 4 Club Status, which is the highest level awarded by USA Swimming.
LAC is known as a team that develops swimmers for life with a focus on Excellence in Attitude, Effort, and Skill. Our athletes participate in regular dryland with a focus on agility, strength and flexibility, and have 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!
