Why the LIONS?

Whether your swimmer is looking for basic conditioning and exercise, socialization, or premier training, the EMPIRE LIONS have a training option for you!  EMPIRE offers several  training groups, and our coaches will help your athlete find the perfect fit. 

The EMPIRE is truly a family affair!  USA Swimming, and the Lions thrive on the volunteer and financial support of family and friends to build an atmosphere where our swimmers can excel while having fun!  As a non-profit youth sports organization, EMPIRE hosts meets, and participates in fundraising, but we also enjoy family gatherings and special events throughout the year. 

As a member team of USA Swimming, we encourage parents to learn more about the sport through USA Swimming's website, becoming a Non-Athlete member, and by volunteering as a timer, safety marshal, or host at swim meets.  USA Swimming also offers certification courses for adults to earn the designation of "USA Swimming Official", which guarantees the best seat in the house!
