OLSA Lightning Swim
The mission of the Oak Lawn Lightning Club is to create and sustain a nationally recognized, competitive swimming program. We emphasize the involvement of all ability levels, the highest quality and consistency of coaching, and family participation. We promote community, cooperation, and sportsmanship, in an inviting and supportive environment, while encouraging each swimmer to maximize their potential. The success of our program is defined by the lifelong enjoyment of swimming, developing champions in and out of the pool.
Our Vision for OLSA Lightning Swimmers: Constant improvement of self-discipline and self-improvement; the commitment to excellence and pride of sportsmanship; the joy of swimming in a supportive and productive team environment.
