Welcome to Lakewood Aquatics 

A proud member of Southern California Swimming and USA Swimming.

Our mission at Lakewood Aquatics is to provide young athletes with a safe and enjoyable environment that will encourage them to learn about the sport of swimming and to achieve their highest potential in aquatic competition.
Lakewood Aquatics is an organization of incredible coaches, inspiring young swimmers and involved parents.  Through practices, meets, and special events the swimmers develop confidence in themselves, pride in their team and make lifelong friends with their teammates. The experience cannot be duplicated and after you've visited the website and pool, we're sure you'll want to be a part of Lakewood Aquatics too!

Lakewood Aquatics is a year-round swim program for children of all ages. We provide a safe, healthy environment for kids to learn the benefits of committment, teamwork and personal goal setting through competitive swimming.

The team is comprised of eight groups which are seperated by age. At the try out the coach will decide whether or not a child will need to temporarily attend workouts with swimmers in a different age group in order to learn proper sroke techniques.  Occasionally it is necessary for a child to enroll in our Learn To Swim Program prior to joining the competitive team.

Please refer to the Calendar page for workout and swim meet information.  Each group requires a different level of committment and thus attending practice on a regular basis a must. It is important for the entire family to understand the necessary committment and support the swimmer.  

After your initial tryout you will have 3 consecutive days to train with the group that the coach has decided is best for you.  The training schedule is posted on the Calendar page.  There are occasional changes, so listen for coach announcements and read anything posted on the website or via email.  Swim gear or 'special' swim suits are not needed for the trial period but goggles are highly recommended.  Swimmers with long hair should pull it back in a pony tail or wear a swim cap.

The coaches evaluate new swimmers for the team Monday - Friday evenings at 5:30 pm at the Cerritos College Aquatics Center.  Ask for Coach Lucy.
