Our Mission Statement & Vision

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

"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 and Summer Season.

We service all of the Lincoln-Way district communities of Frankfort, Mokena, New Lenox, Tinley Park and Manhattan, as well as welcome swimmers from surrounding southwest Chicagoland communities. The majority of our practices and meets are held at our home base of Lincoln-Way Central HS as well as using Lincoln-Way West and Lincoln-Way East HS pools when available, and training some summer days, 50 meter long course at Lake Central HS, St. John, Indiana.
