Dive Tryouts   
Tuesday, Oct. 25th at the Lakeside pool from 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm.
You do not need to sign up for dive tryouts.  Divers not already on Coach Traci's GroupMe, please email her directly at [email protected].

Swim Tryouts
Monday & Tuesday, Oct. 24th-25th.  Sessions will be 6:30am - 7:30am & 3:30pm - 4:30pm.  
Sign up for Swim Tryouts Coming Soon.
Arrive by 6:20 for the AM tryouts and right after school (3:20ish) for the PM tryouts.  ( The pool is located around the back of the school on the end near the Fine Arts Building).  The back doors by the pool should be open by 6:10am.

This year, the cut-off time for the 50 Free is 30 seconds for boys and 34 seconds for girls. Coach Newmyer will enter everyone in all four strokes - but you are only required to swim one additional stroke other than the 50 free.

  • The top 30 boys and top 30 girls will make the Varsity team.

  • If more than 30 boys or 30 girls make the varsity cut time, those additional swimmers (after the top 30 but making the cut time) will be on the Ready Reserves and qualify to swim as many meets as possible.

  • Swimmers that do not make the cut time will be on the JV team. JV will be required to practice only in the morning on Monday/Wednesday/Friday. There is no negotiation on JV practice - you will be required to practice in the mornings.


Roster Posting & Ice Cream Social
The LHS Swim & Dive Team roster will be posted on the website on the morning of Oct. 26th. 
There will be an ice cream social (with captains' speeches) for team members on Wednesday, October 26th from 3:30-4:40, in the Lakeside cafeteria.
