New to Swimming: Where to start?

Swimmers ages 4 to 5 and younger should be enrolled in swim lessons. The goal of swim lessons should be focused on basic water safety. This includes getting in the water voluntarily, getting comfortable putting his or her face in the water, kicking with a kickboard, and rolling over and floating on the back. After the child has mastered basic water safety skills, swim lessons can add basic freestyle stroke work. The goal of swim lessons should not be perpetual swim lessons. Once your child can master basic freestyle and backstroke, and is ready to be in a group setting, you can move on to a swim team. 

Swimmers ages 5-6 and older who have done swim lessons or who can already demonstrate basic water safety requirements and swim basic freestyle and backstroke can usually participate on a summer league team or in an introductory group on a year-round (club) team. Summer league teams are recreational in nature and community-based. A good summer league program teaches stroke development in a fun, supportive, competitive environment. Swimmer goals for summer league should be on personal improvement--swimming a stroke legally for the first time, earning a personal best ribbon, and so on--and also should reinforce being a good teammate. Summer league teams encourage communities to come together by running the teams and reinforcing good swimming and good sportsmanship. 

Swimmers who practice with a year-round, USA Swimming club team (such as Lost Creek Aquatics) might leave LCA for May and June to swim with their local summer league team. We support this! Over time, we have found that younger swimmers who swim summer league come back to year-round swimming in the fall refreshed and with a rejuvenated energy for the sport of swimming. What we don't find is the common concern parents have about "losing ground" in their swimming abilities. Quite the contrary--having a fun time in summer league, and racing every weekend with friends and lots of support from their teammates, has a positive influence in the fall. 

Older swimmers who have graduated from summer league or younger swimmers who have achieved A times generally stay with their club team for the "long course season." Long course season is swimming with a club team after Spring Break in March through August and competing at meets held in 50-meter pools. Most meets held during long course season require swimmers to meet minimum time standards to enter events at meets, because the season is short.

If you have questions about where to enroll your new or experienced swimmer, give us a shout at or 512-917-2274.

Programs run by Lost Creek Aquatics: USA Swimming membership required 

Lost Creek Aquatics runs USA Swimming teams year-round, including the summer USA Swimming long course season. At our Lakeway location, swimmers can participate in the Gold and National groups. At our Lost Creek Country Club and Cedar Park locations, swimmers can participate in the Silver, Gold, and National groups. (Our Cedar Park location also offers a High School group.) Swimmers will compete at meets held in 50-meter pools in Austin and other areas in South Texas.

Lost Creek Aquatics runs a "Late Summer Swim Team" at the LCA Lakeway and LCA Lost Creek CC locations. This is a seasonal USA Swimming team that runs from the end of summer league (June 24) to August 1. New swimmers are accepted on these teams as long as they meet the minimum swimming eligibility requirements. This is a great way for summer league swimmers and swimmers in the LCA Bronze and Silver groups to keep active in the sport until the fall season resumes.
