LASC no longer participates in Bingo for fundraising. The increased focus on Swim-a-thon is in place to offset some of the revenue lost from Bingo.  The Swim-a-thon commitment is per swimmer. 

Membership fees cover most of the operations of the club.  Additional fundraising revenue from Casino, Swim Meets, Swim-a-thon or other events go towards the balance of LASC operating expenses.

 

 

Discounts/Savings 

  • Jr. Pronghorn Membership fees are reduced by $25 per session for each child after the first.
  • For families with two or more competitive swimmers.  The highest level competitive swimmer pays full fees, all other competitive swimmers in the family receive a 25% reduction in annual fees.
