Philosophy of Our Program

The Lee’s Summit Parks and Recreation Swim Team Philosophy is developmental in concept with a strong emphasis on recreation,

fellowship, enjoyment, and learning the basics of competitive

swimming and stroke technique.


Swim suits can be ordered from Swim Things in Blue Springs but you do not have to have a team suit, a solid black or blue suit will also be fine.


Swim Caps

Our team wear will also include the availability of logo swim caps.  In the past they have served as a great way to identify our swimmers from the competitors. They will also be for sale at the suit sale and are optional.


Team t-shirts (optional for $12, $2 more for XXL & XXXL) for swimmers and parents. Please place your order by June 1.
