Most Improved: an award to one boy and one girl in each age group who showed the most time and/or performance improvement throughout the summer.

Seahorse Coaches Award: awarded to one boy and one girl in each age group that the coaches identify as having specific attributes that benefit the team.  These include meet participation, practice participation, demonstrating a positive attitude, supporting teammates, focusing, listening, and striving for improvement.

Spirit Award: awarded to a swimmer or swimmers 10 and under and a swimmer or swimmers 11 and up who showed the most team spirit throughout the summer.

Supreme Seahorse: awarded to one swimmer on the team who demonstrates commitment and inspires everyone around them.

Leadership Award: There are many swimmers that have developed over the years to be tremendous leaders on the pool deck and behind the scenes in ways that have yet to possibly be seen by the entire pool. The recipients of this award are those that have taken on additional tasks that greatly help the team, have become recognizable leaders in and out of the pool, and will be foundations in the future of Las Trampas’ leadership.

Top Seahorse Pop Award: awarded to the swimmer making the highest number of pop times for the season.

Top Pop Award: awarded to the five swimmers who hold highest number of pop times for the season after the Top Seahorse Pop Award winner.

Pop Times Towels: personalized embroidered towels are awarded to swimmers who have 12 or more pop times during the season in accordance with the LTST Pop Times Towel Policy .

Pop Time Board:  The pop time board at the pool is for everyone's motivation and enjoyment, but is unofficial and occasionally contains errors.  If there is a mistake on the pop time board, the DCSL database will be definitive, not the results reflected on the pop time board.
