Banook Summer Swim Team


The Banook Lakers are a well-established summer swim club that competes in provincial swim meets throughout the summer. Swim meets take place during the weekends around the province. Our swimmer are encouraged to participate and race against other clubs’ swimmers.


During the off season, the Lakers practice once per week at the Dartmouth Sportsplex.  In July and August, the Lakers traditionally practiced every morning (Mon-Thurs) at the Dartmouth Sportsplex. With the closure of the Dartmouth Sportsplex in May 2017, the team will be practicing in another venue during the summer of 2017 and 2018.  More information to follow.

The team consists of swimmers of all ages and abilities. Members will learn and improve strokes and speed and enjoy an awesome workout and fun at the same time! The team is lead by fully certified swim coaches with years of experience coaching swim teams.
