Swimming is our passion and Lakeway is our home. It's our goal to run a great community-based program, where kids can learn to swim, have fun, and make new friends. Your team is run by volunteers and led by a professional coach with years of experience. If you have questions that are related to workouts, meets, events, goal setting, or other swimming related needs, please contact your coach. For all questions related to administrative issues, such as dues, safety, or team policy, please contact the team manager.
Coach Cooper has been involved with swimming for more than 15 years, both as an athlete and as a coach. He started swimming when he was in 8th grade and has continued to love the sport ever since. He swam for Texas Christian University, where he was able to qualify for the US Olympic Trials and NCAAs. He has been a part of the coaching staff with Lost Creek Aquatics/Capital Area Aquatics since 2015, first as an assistant coach, and now as the lead coach for the CAA-Lakeway location. He has enjoyed working with every swimmer from the Lakeway location and every swimmer on the CAA team. Cooper has also been a part of the coaching staff with the Lakeway Lakers summer league team since 2017. He finds it extremely rewarding to teach young swimmers to have fun and to improve their swimming, while loving the sport!
