Swim Team Basics
This low cost program is designed for youth who are planning on joining a swim team for the first time or as a repeat participant needing additional guidance. Participants will focus on refining free style, backstroke, breast stroke, and butterfly while building necessary strength training drills. Individuals will be grouped based off skill level. Workouts will include cardiovascular conditioning, streamlining, diving blocks, & flip turns. (This program is designed around a "coaching" format.)
Swim Team Essentials
This 30 minute “IN & OUT” program is designed for youth who already have experience on a swim team and wants to focus on the individual components of each of the four main strokes, flip turns, and starts. This six class program will focus on only one technique per day. Day (1) starts. Day (2) flip turns. Day (3) free style. Day (4) backstroke. Day (5) breast stroke. Day (6) butterfly. Unlike other preseason programs, this program is not necessarily designed as an endurance training program, rather skill refinement.

Liberty Storm Swim Team Cancelled
With the release of Clay County Public Health Center’s COVID-19 recovery plan for COVID-19, Liberty Parks & Rec (LPR) has been developing plans to slowly and responsibly reopening facilities, amenities and programs.
With concerns and restrictions in place regarding gatherings, LPR has made the tough decision to cancel the upcoming summer season for Liberty Storm Swim Team. LPR values the health and safety of all participants and spectators and given the steps in the CCPHCC’s recovery plan, we would be unable to fully provide the experience that LPR strives for and our customers expect.
Storm staff are currently working on additional small group competitive programming that will allow us to safely provide other outdoor swim opportunities. Staff will continue to evaluate the situation, and notify you of any new programs.
For those that have already registered for swim team, LPR will apply a credit to your "household" in RecTrac. This can be used on future LPR programs and services by any individual in the household. If you would like to receive a refund, please fill out this online refund form and our administrative staff will work with you to process your refund*.
*If you paid with cash or check, your refund will be issued in the form of a check and may take up to two weeks. Credit card payments will be applied back to the credit card used.
