LL is a
non-profit organization and must have volunteers to host home meets
and be a successful swim club. Each swim session (spring, summer,
fall and winter) will have different requirements depending on the
meet schedule. The fees you pay cover only a portion of the team
expenses. Families may choose to volunteer the required number of
sessions per meet, or pay a $50 fee for each volunteer session
missed. Conflicts or extenuating circumstances should be discussed
with a board member.
If you need to speak with one

Conversations held during practice take coaching time and attention
away from the other swimmers.
The LL Board of Directors

you! Please contact us if we can help you in any way or answer
questions you may have.
