Our Philosophy

"Swimming develops Champions...LWSA Gators develops Swimmers !"

The Lincoln-Way Swim Association Gators Swim Team was organized in September 2000 and is a year round competitive age-group swim team for swimmers from age five through high school. Swimmers are placed in practice groups according to their ability rather than their age. These practice groups are designed for all our swimmers to excel at their own ability level.

The team is a member of Illinois Swimming, Inc. (ISI) and USA Swimming and competes in the South Suburban Swim Conference (SSSC) during both the Winter Season and Summer Season.

The Mission of the Lincoln-Way Swim Association Gators Swim Team is to offer competitive age-group swimming opportunities where every swimmer, regardless of age or ability, can strive to reach their fullest potential.

We service mostly the Lincoln-Way district communities of Frankfort, Mokena, New Lenox, Tinley Park and Manhattan and practice at Lincoln-Way East HS, Lincoln-Way Central HS and Lincoln-Way West HS pools.

Our philosophy is to develop individuals first and swimmers second.
