The Lakefront Swimming Association is proud to consist of the following teams.

  • St. Clair Shores Sea Serpents
  • City of Grosse Pointe Norbs
  • Grosse Pointe Park Mutants
  • Grosse Pointe Shores Sharks
  • Grosse Pointe Woods Warriors
  • Grosse Pointe Farms Barracudas

A relay meet will be held to initiate the swim season. During the season, each team will participate in weekly dual meets on Wednesday evenings. Each team will swim against each of the other teams once. Mini meets will be held on Saturday mornings for swimmers 12 and under. Mini-meets are not scored, but coaches and swimmers use them as a tool to gauge times.

After each team swims against each other once, the Swim Team Finals culminate the season. The Preliminary Meet is held to determine which swimmers will compete in the Final Meet. At the Prelims, each team submits a line-up with two swimmers and one alternate for each event. The top six swimmers for each event are then entered in the Final Meet.
