Team Requirements

Swimmer Requirements

Membership is open to any boy or girl age 6 through 18 years of age who is a member of the Lower Makefield Township Pool or is a full-time or regularly scheduled part-time lifeguard of the pool. A member can be 19 years of age if they are a graduating senior in high school. A member that is 18 years of age and has completed one year of college, is still eligible to swim for LMT, as long as they did not swim competitively in college. Some swimming and diving ability is required, but competitive experience is not necessary.  Minimum Requirements:

  • Completing one length of a 25 meter  (and 12 feet deep) pool crawl stroke, unassisted. Crawl stroke is a racing stroke in which the swimmer propels across the pool flat on his stomach, face in the water (except while taking a breath), using alternating overhand strokes, while legs are moved up and down at the same time alternately. (Freestyle, not perfectly!)
  • Completing one length of a 25 meter (and 12 feet deep) pool on their backs, unassisted. (Not perfectly!)
  • 5 year olds will be considered for membership if they can complete the above requirements as well as have a maturity level appropriate for team membership.

Age group for the summer season will be determined by the child’s age as of June 15.
