LHP Swim Team
What the Swim Team Offers
In addition to helping your child improve his/her swimming skills and stroke mechanics, the LHP swim team provides athletic conditioning, competition, and team-building with other members. Our Friday pasta dinners are a long-standing way for swimmers and families to connect before our Saturday meets.
Who Can Join?
The swim team encourages swimmers of all skill levels to participate. Swimmers are grouped with others with similar ability throughout the season.
Swimmers must be able to swim at least 1 length of the pool unassisted without stopping, listen to and follow instructions, and willingly participate in activities in order to join the team. Swimmers should be willing and able to swim multiple laps during practice.
There are several opportunities for the swimmers to compete.
A Meets are on Saturday mornings and participation is based on swimmer times.
B Meets are on Monday evenings and are open to every swimmer that can swim the length of the pool unassisted.
Friday Mini Meets are on Fridays before Pasta Dinner and give every younger swimmer a chance to swim in a race. Swimmers can use pool noodles or paddles boards, too.
Parents can join in the fun by helping out at meets in all sorts of ways—from officiating to working the snack bar – and by cheering for the team. The team is always looking for volunteers from swim team members as well as plain old LHP members to help at Friday Night Pasta Dinners, an event that has run continuously for the last few years.
