Liberty Swim School

Our instructional swim clinics teach the skills necessary to ensure fun, safe experiences in the water. Both drills and interactive games are utilized to practice swimming skills. Clinics are open to both members and non-members. If you are unsure of which clinic level is appropriate for your child, please contact our Aquatics Director, Marie Bondie, at (734) 665-3738 (ext. 154) or marie.bondie@libertyathletic.net. Individual progression is accelerated due to our small class size and the personal attention of our experienced aquatic staff.
