Welcome to Lightning Swimming (OLSA)

Safe Sport Certified

New Season has started!

OLSA Lightning Swim LLC is a year round developmental and competitive age-group swimming club program for youth ages five through eighteen.

We swim at Oak Lawn Community High School at 9400 SW Hwy, Oak Lawn, IL. Our Swim Program is chartered by USA Swimming, through IL Swimming and our times match up in the National Database along with your favorite Olympian.

Are you interested in joining the team? 

Team Try-outs will be held by appointment only - please email us at [email protected] if you would like an appointment time.  Returning swimmers do not need to try out - start with Team Registration and pay online or in person.

Don't know how to swim yet, join one of our classes to learn? 

Periodically we offer short eight session series for pre-team swim classes. Information can be found under Classes.   



We are officially a Level 2 USA Swimming Team and valid Safe Sport Certification through 2025. It shows our dedication to making the sport of swimming a healthy and positive environment, free from abuse for our athletes on OLSA Lightning. We hope all teams will strive towards this status so we can continue to make this a sport of the future. Please reach out to our head coach or board if you have any questions. #SafeSport
