Lakesideis a private swim club, to be used by its members and their guests. Each summer we
welcome the Seahawk Team to our club for their annual long course summer training season.

apply to those swimmers to ensure proper standards for the club are maintained.
All team members need to be aware of the following regulations:
1) ALL SWIMMERS AND PARENTS MUST REPORT IN AT THE FRONT GATE.

at the front gate, say your name and scan your membership card. If you are new to the team and
have not received a membership card you will have your photo taken at the front gate and will
be issued a card. If you swam at Lakeside in the past, your membership card is still valid. If a
swimmer has physically changed greatly since their membership photo was taken, a new photo
will be taken upon discretion of the attendant.
3) Non club member parents may come to Lakeside to watch a practice in appropriate "street"
clothing only. Siblings who are not on the team may not accompany their parents. Parent’s must
