 Welcome to the 2021 Summer Swim Season.  Thank you for being a part of our Team.

THE 2021 INFORMATION PACKET IS POSTED TO THE LANE WEBSITE

Visit the Lane Swim Club website and click on “Swim Team Information.”  Click the link titled “2021 Swim Team Information Packet” to open the PDF document.  Updates to this document will be posted periodically in the early weeks of the season (so it is not suggested to keep a printed copy around).

PARENT MEETING AT LANE SWIM CLUB – WEDNESDAY JUNE 2ND AT 6:30PM

TEAM SWIMSUITS AND CAPS

Team Suits are available at The Swim Shop in Fairfax shopping center (more information is found in the swim team information packet).  Lane Swim Caps will be provided prior to the first swim meet (on June 17th at Elks Swim Club). A practice cap and suit are recommended.  Lane Swimsuits and Caps are to be worn at all swim meets and they should be worn instead of other suits or caps (especially a suit or cap with another team logo).  ANY suit or cap can be worn during practices. While The Swim Shop will only put our team logo on our specific team suit, purchasing a Lane Swimsuit is NOT a prerequisite for participating with the team at swim meets.  A lower cost plain black suit is an acceptable alternative.  Our Team logo has not changed for a few years and our basic team suit design has only changed slightly over the years, so parents of children who have grown out of their Lane swimsuits are encouraged to share any available “in good condition” prior years’ suits with the parents of other swimmers who may want to use them this season.
