The LA Story - History of
the Swim Club
WE CAME, WE SWAM, WE CONQUERED!!
When the LA Swim Club - Lethbridge Swimming was first formed back in 1938, it was a
ragtag group of volunteers and swimming hopefuls who sensed a need for such a club here in the City of
Since those early days when swim meets were still being held at Henderson Lake, the club has evolved into
an organization that has produced world-class atheles while continuing to develop swimming skills among children
ranging from 5 years old elementary ages to teens in high schools and University.
LASC has a rich history of provincial, national, and international competitive swimming
excellence. The construction of the Max Bell Regional Aquatic Centre
at the University of Lethbridge has provided the
club with an outstanding facility to further promote fitness and excellence in swimming.
The Club celebrated it's 60th Anniversary in 1998 with the hosting of the Alberta Provincial Championship. The
Lethbridge community rallied their volunteer spirit in support of the prestigious event.
We are well received in the swimming community for our great facility, excellent coaching staff, warm hospitality,
and overwhelming volunteer spirits.
We sincerely thank the following "Friends of LASC" who have continually provided
their great support during our swim competition event hostings. Your efforts are very, very much appreciated:
