How To Join LESD

Joining LESD is as easy as 1-2-3

Step 1: Come to Open Tryouts! Tryouts help determine which level of Lake Erie Silver Dolphins (LESD) best fits your swimmer’s talent and age.

Step 2: Complete a Two Week Trial

LESD offers all swimmers a two week trial period.  During these two weeks, you and the coaches will work together to see what the best fit is for your swimmer(s).

Parents - some helpful questions you can consider during the trial period are…

  • Is your child ready to participate on a swim team?  Do they have the necessary skills?  Are they interested?

  • Is LESD a good fit?  Does what you see match with what you want for your child?

  • Which practice group/facility fits your child best?  Which lane is best?

  • How many practices will you attend each week?  How does this work in your family schedule?

  • What are your goals in participating in a swim team? What is your child good at?  What do they need help with?

Step 3: JOIN LESD by officially registering with the team online 

All that remains is to pay our team fees and registration.  The registration fee is the same for all LESD swimmers, but team fees vary according to practice group due to longer practice times and increased practice frequency for more advanced swimmers.
