Aquatics at LFC

Welcome our new Aquatics Director- Tim Richardson


Tim Richardson comes to the Lake Forest Club with over 35 years of experience in managing swimming programs. He grew up swimming in a country club setting and later went on to be an All-American collegiate swimmer at Western Illinois University.  His desire to coach swimming led him to a career as a high school physical education teacher.  He recently retired from teaching at Evanston Township High School and has been doing so for the past 30.  This past fall he took on the Management of the new Highland Park High Schools new Aquatic’s complex where he also teaches the swimming classes.  He spent 22 years coaching high school swim teams and was fortunate to coach several state champions and All Americans along the way.  In addition, he currently coaches for Highland Park Aquatics age group swim team.

Tim has taught hundreds of individuals how to swim over the years.  Many have gone on to be involved in advanced swimming programs.  His goal has always been to ensure that his students become water- safe while learning the skills needed to become efficient in all the strokes.

Over the past eleven years, he has built strong country club swim programs and significantly increased overall swim team participation.   He emphasizes the importance of good stroke mechanics and really enjoys seeing the development of his swimmers.  As a result of his efforts, his teams have gone on to win ten of eleven team championships.

Tim is excited about the opportunity to work with members at the Lake Forest Club and provide a pleasant and safe environment for your families.
