The Lakeway Lakers summer swim team began in 2003 when the Lakeway Swim Center first opened. The Lakers team is a nonprofit organization in the State of Texas and is federally exempt under Section 501(c)(7) of the IRS code. The team is run entirely by volunteers and is completely self-funded. Membership is open to swimmers who meet the eligibility requirements. We offer a fun and supportive environment for beginning and experienced swimmers, stroke development and stroke refinement, and competitive events at which to swim. Swimmers on our team range in age from 5-1/2 to younger teens, and our swimmers have a range of abilities, from experienced summer leaguers to newbies. Many of our swimmers have gone on to be successful USA Swimming, high school, and collegiate athletes, and many have competed at Junior Nationals, Nationals, and even the Olympic Trials. Our summer season is about good swimming and good sportsmanship, in a fun, neighborhood setting.
