Goggle Recommendations

One of the best ways to make swimming enjoyable is to have a pair of new goggles that fit correctly and comfortably. Leaking goggles, goggles that are the wrong size, and goggles that are so old that the rubber seals have worn out or the lenses are scratched up is not going to make for an enjoyable swim!

Goggles come in kid, youth, junior, and regular (adult) sizes. Sizing is more about the shape and width of the face instead of just the swimmer age. Goggles also come in different tints, just like sunglasses. We recommend tinted goggles or mirrored goggles. Clear goggles will cause a lot of refraction from the water and are not as comfortable swimming backstroke because of the sun. 

Goggles that we recommend are on our Team Store for purchase, but you can get these goggles on any online swim shop or through Amazon.

About the Lakeway Lakers

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.

Want to keep swimming all summer or year-round? Swimmers can join our partner club, Capital Area Aquatics at Lakeway, which practices in the mornings at the Lakeway Swim Center through the summer and in the afternoons during the school year. CAA is a year-round USA Swimming club.
