Swimmers, Take Your Mark!

Go, Snakes!

The pool deck is about to get busy with 200 swimmers from ages 5 to 18 taking to the lanes for the Lakes Snakes Swim Team's 43rd season of competition.

Poolside with the Lakes Swim Team is the "cool" place to be this summer! Swimmers will learn proper stroke technique in freestyle, backstroke, breast stroke, and butterfly, all while enjoying camaraderie among team members and practicing good sportsmanship. The long-standing tradition of the Lakes Swim Team provides a perfect opportunity for families to meet and spend time with each other; the kids really enjoy reconnecting with their Snakes team members each summer.

Practice Times
13 and older 6 - 7 AM
9 to 12 7 - 8 AM
5 to 8 Years 8 - 8:45 AM

The Lakes Snakes will host 5 home meets this season, visit the newly renovated McClintock Pool, and even take a drive up north to Cottonwood for away meets. All meets are Saturday mornings, except for one evening meet on June 28. There will be a holiday break from July 2-6. The season concludes the week of July 23.

Lakes residents should be aware of morning pool closures for practices and meets, as well as, families with children crossing Lakeshore during Saturday morning meets. The Lakes staff works hard to re-set the pool deck following swim meets and get it reopened it as quickly as possible for residents. The Swim Team Committee thanks the community for its support during our short summer season and invites you to stop by a meet to cheer on the Snakes.

Pool Hours for
Meet Days

For the Saturday meets which begin at 7 AM, the pool will be closed Friday night at 8 PM so that we can prepare the area in advance.

The pool will close at 2 PM for mid-week meets that begin at 5 PM. Following mid-week meets, the pool will remain closed for the rest of the night for clean-up.

Otherwise, the Pool will be open for general use as soon as meets or practice is over and the area is clear.
