Lake Monsters Youth Swim Team

LakeMonster-Dragon-FINALFall swim team is just around the corner. If you are ready to take your swimming to the next level, join the Lake Monsters Swim Team! Children age 6-18 are invited to join our USA competitive swim team, provided they are ready to train and compete. Swimmers will practice in groups based upon age and ability.

Swim team practice is after school, Monday through Friday, starting at 4 p.m. and ending at 5, 5:30 or 6 p.m., depending on the swimmer’s workout group.

The Lake Monsters have an “open” tryout policy. Interested families can come to any training session at 4 p.m. for an assessment and placement in a swim team group, or into our lesson program. Mission Valley Aquatics has an excellent lesson program and swimmers are encouraged to progress through the lesson program before joining the Lake Monsters swim team.


Fall Workout Days/Times:

  • Monday through Friday from 4-5:30 p.m.


Water Daze Weekend 030All Lake Monsters are required to have an Annual Swim Pass to the Mission Valley Aquatic Center ($125-150) and be registered members of USA Swimming ($84 annual, $52.50 seasonal or $7 qualified outreach). Monthly dues are $55 for all ability groups.

Participants are expected to wear competition-style swim attire (including goggles and caps). Team suits cost $27-50 depending on style and gender. Meet fees are typically $15-40 and the team expects all swimmers to train with the goal to compete in meets.

The Lake Monsters will be hosting one two-day invitational in January and the B-C state championships in March. All swim team parents should plan on volunteering at these events.

If you’re not quite ready for the Lake Monsters, consider enrolling in the MVA summer lesson program to learn to swim better and gain the necessary skills. Follow this link to learn more about the lesson program.
