June 15 Update: Click the Lakeway Summer Swim Clinics button to register for our Lakeway Summer Clinics. These clinics are geared toward new and returning summer league swimmers who were not able to swim this summer due to closures. We will offer two-week sessions through the summer.
***On May 3, 2020, the 10 teams of the Austin Hills Swim League unanimously voted to cancel the 2020 swim season, based on the local, state, and national restrictions in place and also to protect the health and safety of our swimmers, volunteers, and coaches. This was a very difficult decision, because we know how important swim team is to our families. We hope to see everyone back next summer. ***
The Lakeway Lakers summer swim team began in 2003 when the Lakeway Swim Center first opened. For the past 17 years, we've introduced over a thousand children in our community to the wonderful sport of swimming. Many of our swimmers have gone on to be successful USA Swimming, high school, and collegiate athletes, and many have competed at Junior Nationals, Nationals, and even the Olympic Trials. Our team is a non-profit organization operated by parent volunteers and is completely self-funded.
Registration for the Summer 2020 team will open online for returning members in good standing on March 30, 2020 and to new members on April 6, 2020. Our team practices in May and June at the Lakeway Swim Center. In 2019, we had over 60 kids on our wait list and filled up our team in just a few days. Be sure to sign up early, space is limited! Additional details about the Summer 2020 season (season dates, practice schedules, registration link, meet dates, etc.) will be posted on our website as they become available from our swim league.
The fee for swim team is $225 per swimmer PLUS your time working three swim meets (no exceptions--everyone helps), and you will need to purchase goggles and a team suit. Membership on the Lakers is open to kids ages 5 and older who meet our minimum swimming requirements. You do not need to be a member of the Lakeway Swim Center or a Lakeway resident to join our team.
