On or around 1985, the Lakewood Swim Team(s) were formed, as a part of the Suburban Swim League. For several years there was just one swim team, before the teams grew so large that they needed to divide into the Lasers and the Cruisers.  As of 2024, there are over 150 swimmers per team, age 7-18.  It remains one of the most exciting activities for families throughout the summer season!
