The Lakeland Loons offer training and practice groups for swimmers of varying ages and ability levels. It is our goal to offer a basic understanding of the sport in a competitive environment and develop those athletes that are interested in taking their ability to the next level.  We compete in the Central Wisconsin Swim Conference consisting of 14 teams.  For swimmers that have the ability and drive, we do offer a USA post season session.  We want to challenge and develop each individual to the best of THEIR abilities and have some fun in the process.
