The Lake Park swim team has a long history of success in the Tarheel Swim Association (TSA). The swim club has consistently competed in the top two divisions of the TSA league. The swim club is currently in Division 4 of the TSA league.

The swim team is comprised of approximately 130 swimmers, whose ages range from 4 years to 18 years. Depending on swimmer's ability and age, the team tries to advance each swimmer's knowledge of stroke technique, proper start and finishes and flip turns (for swimmers over the age of 11 years) during the swim season. Focus is made on improving the skills and increasing the stamina of each swimmer.

While summer swimming is competitive in nature, the swim team's philosophy is to emphasize teamwork, individual goals, and good sportsmanship. Each swimmer is encouraged, through the weekly tracking of times in each event, to improve their technique and speed. Because many members of the team swim competitively year-round, we try to focus on the improvement of each swimmer rather than individual accomplishments of particular members.

We are a non profit club, is run by its elected Board of Directors which meets quarterly. All members are welcome at each meeting and encouraged to be involved in team activities and fundraiser.
