Tryouts & Pre-Competitive Program Registration

LSC is pleased to announce open tryouts and registration for our pre-competitive program for the 2022-23 season.

Fundamentals is now Lakers & Little Lakers

Our very popular Fundamentals of Competitive Swimming program has a new name!

Fundamentals 1 is now Little Lakers 1
Fundamentals 2 is now Little Lakers 2
Fundamentals 3 is now Little Lakers 3

The Little Lakers pre-competitive program runs for 3 12-week sessions. Little Lakers 1 practices once per week, Little Lakers 2 practices twice per week, and Little Lakers 3 practices three times per week. The Fall session starts on Monday, September 12th and runs on weeknights from 7:30pm to 8:30pm at Gus Ryder Pool and Health Club (1 Faustina Drive, Etobicoke - near Kipling and Lakeshore).

We are also pleased to introduce a new pre-competitive program, designed for swimmers aged 12 and 13, called Lakers.

Lakers is a season-long program, practicing three times per week, commencing on September 12th and wrapping up in June.

Complete program details, including group descriptions, time slots, and registration details are available on our website:


Registration Details

A tryout is required to register for Lakers, Little Lakers 3, and Little Lakers 2. While a tryout is not required for Little Lakers 1, swimmers must be able to complete a length of a 25m pool unassisted, and pass the City of Toronto’s “deep end test” to be at a suitable level for participation in Little Lakers 1.

Returning swimmers do not need to try out, and can register for the groups they were in last season, unless a coach has recommended a different group.
