In the summer the principal goal of the swim team coaches is to create a fun environment of friendly competition. The coaching philosophy at Lakeshore is to stay focused on the spirit of summer swimming; swim meets are meant to be fun, and striving to win should never compromise that. All our swimmers, no matter what level, will get equal attention in the water, and everybody will get a chance to compete in their favorite events during the regular season. We will be in Section B again this summer, and we’re looking forward to upholding Lakeshore’s reputation for competitive spirit and sportsmanship. Go, Shore!

Lakeshore’s diving team had an awesome season last year with the turnouts getting better and better every summer! Each year we continue to reach new heights and improve in many different ways. Nevertheless, there’s always room for more divers! Everyone is encouraged to come out and give diving a try, regardless of age or experience. Joining the diving team is a great way to try something new, get more involved in pool life and make new friends. Participation in the competitions is not essential, but is always lots of fun! We hope to have a successful and fun-filled summer! Can’t wait to see all the returning divers as well as many new faces!

Again this summer at Lakeshore, we will be offering synchro lessons as well as a competitive program. Beginners will enjoy the synchro lessons, where they can learn the basics of the sport. The synchro team requires more dedication, as a routine will be put together and performed at competitions held near the end of the summer, around the first two weeks of August. In the past years our teams, duets, and solos have been improving their standings at these competitions, and we hope to continue this trend during the coming summer. Our coaches are ready to offer a fun and exciting atmosphere for the swimmers, so come and make the best of your summer and join the Lakeshore Synchro Team!

The Leaders program at Lakeshore is designed to encourage young adolescents to take part in pool activities. It is a fun way to spend the summer, and one which will result in benefits and memories lasting a lifetime. Leaders will learn responsibility by helping lifeguards perform simple tasks around the pool and by helping organize events and fundraisers. It is not all work, Leaders have weekly outings such as movies, mini putt, bowling and dances. The leaders also have an end-of-season outing to LaRonde. As you can see this program is full of non-stop action where friends can be made and memories are built, we look forward to having a great summer.
