LVST 2021 Summer Season
Open for Returning Members
3/28/21 - 6/30/21
Open for New Members
4/2/21 - 6/30/21
Welcome to the Lucas Valley Lightning Registration for our 2021 Season!
We look forward to seeing our returning swimmers and welcoming new swimmers to LVST as we prepare to start another great, if somewhat unusual, season!
We’ll have a shorter season in 2021, and once again, we’re not in our home pool. All swimmers will be swimming at two different pools for the duration of the season—Specifics are below.
Season starts: Monday, April 12, 2021
Season ends: Saturday, June 30, 2021
Registration opens for existing LVST families on Monday, March 29, 2021.
Registration opens for new LVST families on Friday, April 2, 2021.
Note: Due to limitations on the number of swimmers per lane, there is a cap on the number of swimmers we can have in the pool each day, and by extension, a cap on the number of swimmers we can support on the team, at this time. We are optimistic that health guidelines may change, which would expand the number of swimmers we can have on the team.
*If you find registration has already filled but would like to join if and when we are able to expand, please send an email, with the subject line “Wait List”, to [email protected]
10 and under: $330
high school: $165
**If you believe you have a credit from last year, please go through the complete registration process, including payment, and we will reimburse you once verified.
**Due to the Covid limitation on swimmer/coach contact and the number of swimmers and coaches allowed in the water and on the pool deck, LVST is unable to offer swim school this year.
Check back in late summer for details on our fall swim school program!
We are swimming in two different pools this season, and lane limitations mean we will have small cohorts of swimmers at different times. Each cohort will have specific swim times.
Mon-Fri we are at the Terra Linda Recreation Center pool, with different age groups swimming on separate days. Saturday mornings, we’ll have an extra session for all swimmers at the Terra Linda High School pool. Please note the schedules below for each group. You’ll have the chance to request the schedule(s) that works best for your swimmer, but also be aware that we cannot guarantee your first choice, as groups will be determined both by age and ability.
11+ (2 groups)
Mon., Wed. & Fri. at Terra Linda Rec Center pool: 3:30-4:20pm
Sat. at TLHS pool: 11:55am-12:55pm
Mon., Wed. & Fri. at Terra Linda Rec Center pool: 4:30-5:20pm
Sat. at TLHS pool: 10:45-11:45am
10 and unders (3 groups)
Tues. & Thurs. at Terra Linda Rec Center pool: 3:30-4:10pm
Sat. at TLHS pool: 9:50-10:35am

Sat. at TLHS pool: 8:55-9:40am
***REGISTRATION FINAL STEP: Once you complete the registration process, there is one final step this year. You will be directed to click on a link to fill out a questionnaire. This is where you will make a request to prioritize which group your swimmer(s) want to be in. There will also be a place for you to add the names of 2-3 friends that your swimmer would like to try to be in a group with. Please note that while we cannot offer any guarantees for either of the above items, we will do our best to accommodate your requests.
In past years, we have been able to offer swim school to help build swimming skills before new swimmers can move up to the team. Due to space limitations and Covid safety, we are not able to offer these classes this year. If your child is brand-new to swimming, please wait until next year to join us on the LVST.
Covid safety at the pool
Keeping our swimmers safe while having the best season we can is our number one goal. Things at the pool will be looking a lot different this year. Parents will not be allowed on deck. Showers and bathrooms will not be open at the pool (except for emergencies). There will be no changing rooms. Swimmers will need to arrive and depart on time, in their suits, as we only have 10 minutes to switch over between groups, during which time coaches and lifeguards will sanitize common areas for the next group. Parent volunteers (you!) will sign-up to check temperatures of swimmers as they arrive. We will really need your help to make sure pool transitions run as smoothly and safely as possible. (Sign-up email to follow after registration is closed.)
We aim to make the registration process as simple as possible and it shouldn't take but a couple minutes. We are more than happy to help if you hit a snag or have questions. If you would like assistance, please contact us via [email protected]
