The Lake Highland Swim & Dive program aims to develop self-confidence, character, and skills in our swimmers. We also encourage parents to actively support their child and the program. Through this caring and considerate environment, we provide our community with individuals who are becoming the best they can be as students, citizens and athletes. Through committed, purposeful practice, each student-athlete sets goals and works hard to achieve those goals. We capture our philosophy in the words COURAGE and PERSEVERANCE.
The Swim & Dive team can boast 19 individual race State Championships as well as 6 diving State Championships. The boys and girls programs both earned District and Region Championships in 2020 and additionally both qualified for the State Meet in 2019 and 2020.
Home to the Highlander Swim and Dive teams, our Aquatic Center features the official Water Polo pool from the 1996 Summer Olympics held in Atlanta, Georgia. This 22-lane, 25-yard pool regularly hosts the Florida High School Athletics Association District and Regional Championships. The Aquatics Center also includes a 13-foot diving well used for competition and an adjacent three-foot, 25-yard pool utilized for swim lessons and Physical Education classes. The Center's duPont Family Scoreboard features state-of-the-art Daktronics technology, including timing systems, animation, video, instant replay and other capabilities.
