How to Sign up: In order to sign up for a meet a parent or swimmer must sign the swimmer name, age and indicate the days they are able to participate. The Meet Registration Binder will be located outside the coach’s offices. Please sign up by the deadline, which is usually 3-4 weeks prior to the meet. The meets usually last 2-4 hours and are preceded with a 1 hour warmup period. Meet entry fees range from $5.00 to $15.00 per swimmer per meet. Upon signing up for a meet, a swimmer is liable for those entry fees regardless of whether or not the swimmer attends the meet.
The Highlander Aquatic Club--a division of Lake Highland Preparatory School-- founded in 1993, is known throughout the country for a first-class, year-round swim program. We offer a guided age-group youth program for children age 5 and up, from the beginning swimmer to the most competitive and skilled swimmer. When a young person becomes a member of the Highlander Aquatic Club he/she learns the values of sportsmanship and team work.
