Another one of the earliest clubs established in the late 70s, the Lakewood Lasers and Cruisers have grown into highly sought after swim teams to join. They are officially a part of the SSL, or Suburban Swim League. The Cruisers began as the team that the “West Side” or kids who are part of the Lee’s Summit School District joined, and the Lasers for the “East Side” or Blue Springs School District, but both are now open to all Lakewood kids and teens interested in swimming.
