Tryouts, Fundamentals & Summer Camps

Welcome to Lakeshore Swim Club's Tryout, Fundamentals & Development Summer Camp home. These programs are offered outside our competitive program.

Each program is described below in detail, along with session times and registration fees.


If indicated below, LSC is currently accepting appointments for tryouts. See below for details.


Registration is only available online. Returning swimmers are given exclusive access to re-register, followed by qualified siblings of members, and then qualified new members may register afterward if space permits. Note that some programs require swimmers to attend one of our tryouts and to be invited to register. Please review the program information below for details like this before proceeding to register. 

Wait Lists

LSC does not maintain wait lists for its programs between one session and the next. However, if a program becomes full, some programs allow swimmers to join a wait list for that particular session. In the event that a participant has to leave the program, LSC may admit a member from the wait list to fill the vacancy. If you would like to register for a program that is full, you may want to click on the "Wait List" button (which replaces the "Register" button) to join that program's wait list. At the end of the session, the wait list is discarded. There is no charge to join a wait list.

No Refunds

Please note that LSC does not offer full or partial refunds for any of its non-competitive programs for any reason. Be sure to check program eligibility requirements and your schedules before registering!

Program Cancellation Policy

In the event of insufficient demand for programs, Lakeshore Swim Club reserves the right to cancel a program prior to the commencement of classes. Registered members will be fully reimbursed for their fee in such circumstances.



The Fundamentals program at Lakeshore Swim Club is a developmental swim program for swimmers age 6 and up. This program introduces swimmers to competitive swimming in a structured and FUN environment! Swimmers will learn technique and skills for the four competitive swimming strokes: Freestyle (front crawl), Backstroke (back crawl), Breaststroke, and Butterfly.

Sessions are led by professional and experienced coaches, who are registered with Swim Ontario. Swimmer to coach ratio does not exceed 15 to 1 in order to ensure quality supervision and individual instruction.

The Fundamentals program is divided into 3 levels. Fundamentals 1 is a one day per week program for swimmers who can pass a deep end test (complete 1 length of a 25-metre pool). No tryout is required for this level as long as this condition is met. Fundamentals 2 and 3 practice two and three times per week, respectively. These groups require a tryout prior to registration. Swimmers progress through the Fundamentals levels as they acquire and improve their skills.

The goal of the Fundamentals program is to develop the four competitive strokes, in order to graduate into Lakeshore Swim Club's competitive program. Swimmers in the competitive program compete in regular meets, and practice more frequently depending on age and ability.

The Fundamentals program is not part of Lakeshore Swim Club's formal competitive program. Participants in this program are not members of Lakeshore Swim Club, and are not subject to the volunteer requirement listed in the Parent Info section of our website.
