Our vision on how to achieve what we set out to do as defined in our Mission Statement. The mission of the LAA is to encourage participation and the pursuit of excellence in all aspects of swimming. LAA grants the privilege of membership to individuals and families committed to that mission. The privilege of membership may, therefore, be withdrawn or denied by LAA at any time where LAA determines that a member or prospective member’s conduct is inconsistent with the mission of the organization or the best interest of the sport and those who participate in it.
Accomplishing LAA’s mission requires commitment from all individuals involved with the team. Swimmers are expected to show their commitment by attending practices on a regular basis, by respecting and supporting their teammates on deck and in the water, and by conducting themselves in a responsible manner at all times. Parents are expected to support the team and their swimmers by contributing their time by assisting at LAA’ swimming and social events, by modeling excellent role behavior for children on the team and by providing a supportive environment for their children and other children on the team. In turn, LAA will provide high-caliber swimming program in an organized, Safe Sport accredited, and friendly environment.
