The Lochmere Swim Team is one of the summer swim teams in the Triangle Swim Association (TSA) and is organized as part of an overall summer swimming program designed to enhance the popularity of swimming and provide competition between communities within Wake County. The TSA Rules and Regulations govern the team.
The "Lochmere Monsters Swim Team" was started 30 years ago when Lochmere was just a dot on the map. The Lochmere community was very small and it was a great way for the new residents to meet their peers. Over the years the Lochmere community has grown to over 1,900 residents and the swim team continues to flourish.
Whether you are a beginner swimmer or have been on a swim team before, we welcome all swimmers to become a Lochmere Monster. The team is open to all Lochmere residents ages 4 to 18 (as of June 1, 2017) who are able to swim and meet our published guidelines. We swim 6 dual swim meets on 6 consecutive Tuesday evenings starting on June 13and rounding out the season on July 19 (since the 4th of July is on Tuesday, the swim meet will be Wednesday, July 5th). We have loads of social events including a Pasta Pump-Up, after-meet ice cream, Breakfast of Champions, movie days, end-of-season 10&Under Party, and an 11-&Up trip to Emerald Point. All swimmers receive a trophy at the annual banquet. Throughout the season they receive placement ribbons and personal best ribbons.
Because Wake county offers so many different opportunities for public schools and since there are many private school opportunities, summer allows the Lochmere youngsters (and their parents) to meet others who they don't have the opportunity to socialize with over the off-season. That is why the Lochmere Swim Team is like a family.
You don’t have to be fast to be on the team, you just need to come out and have fun.
