Liberty is looking to expand! This means more SPACE and new equipment creating a fresh environment that meets the needs of all our students. Our preschoolers need room to run along with mats that fit their tiny size. Recreational students, boys and girls, need more time on the apparatus along with class availability to meet their schedules and improve their skill acquisition.

Team athletes are training higher levels as well, which involves advanced equipment that is not appropriate for our beginning students. With safety at the forefront we knew it was time to find a way to meet the needs of the ever growing programs, but how to do that was the question. We decided to expand our current space.

With an expansion not only will we meet the facility needs, we will be able to offer a more broad schedule for our Liberty families.

Expansion will happen in two phases.  In Phase 1, our Recreational and Preschool students will continue to use the 10,000 square foot facility with more space and stations dedicated to Preschool and Recreational gymnastics.  Boys Team athletes, Boys Recreational, and the new Boys Xcel program will move to a different space designed specifically for their needs.  In this expansion phase, the Girls team and the new Girls Xcel program will remain in the existing facility.  Phase 2 is targeted to begin 2 years after Phase 1 and Liberty will expand Phase 1 space to house the entire Girls and Boys Team program.  The current main gym becomes dedicated to having the best Preschool and Recreational gymnastics programs and opens the possibility to other fun recreational activities.

The next question was how to do it without putting a burden on our families? Liberty has teamed up with Lucas Sports to create a fundraiser that would help to build a new gym space. What are some of the purposes for a fundraiser:

  • Redesigning the gym to fit our preschool and Recreational students needs
  • Purchase new matting underneath the apparatus
  • Purchase learning tools to help students understand the gymnastics skills
  • Create an advanced training space for our team athletes
  • Begin a recreational competitive team called XCEL for boys and girls
  • Reward students for their fundraising efforts.

But, this is not any ordinary fundraiser. We have arranged to have Olympic Gold Medalist Laurie Hernandez to come to our gym and spend time with those students who participate in the fundraiser. There will be many incentives that students can earn in order to spend the whole day with her, including lunch. With Laurie comes Laurie’s mom, Wanda. She is an amazing woman and she will be here to answer questions as well.

I have had the privilege to attend an event with Laurie and her mom and it was above and beyond any experience I have had with any other medalist. They are delightful.  So Join us in this once in a lifetime event and be part of the groundbreaking venture.
