JETS Pre-Competitive Swim Camps
Competitive swimming is a popular activity with a long list of positive benefits. It is a healthy, clean sport that builds self-confidence. Swimming also promotes positive interaction among teammates and friends. On top of all this, swimming is FUN!
The Liverpool Jets Pre-Competitive Swim Camp is a multifaceted program designed to introduce children to the sport of competitive swimming. Participants receive expert instruction in each of the four competitive strokes (freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly), racing starts and turns. Participants will also learn basic pool safety as well as useful nutrition information.
Our swim camps are designed for swimmers between the ages of 6 and 14. The camp will help bridge the gap between lessons and our swim team. To get the most out of our swim camp, swimmers should have passed level 4 in swim lessons OR can swim 25 yards freestyle.

The JETS are also happy to assist with several initiatives run by the Liverpool School District's scholastic coaches that increase awareness of aquatic activities. These have included swim clinics for elementary schools and fun nights at the pool for 6th grade moving up parties. This also coincides with USA Swimming's "Swim Today" campaign. Both of these target the fun you can have while being safe in the water. So whether its a cannonball off the diving board or a race across a pool with some friends, find a way to get wet!
