Athletic Profile


Liana Planz

Hi and welcome to my athletic profile.  I am a competitive swimmer in High School and in Club.  Swimming life started for the love of the beach life.  The day I was caught in a rip current, is when my mother put me in swim lesson.  At my local YMCA is when I started to learn about club swimming and was approached by a coach to join the swim club. Ever since then swimming has been part of me.  

I am a certified lifeguard and swim instructor where I work at the Belton Swimming pool. Everyone should have a chance to learn to swim.  I believe it is a life skill that everyone needs to learn and that all schools need to provide.  Because of my swimming skills I was able to swim away from a rip current multiple times.  Without the swimming skills who knows what could have happened.


My Passion

As a military child, I have traveled all around the world.  I had to learn to quickly adjust and be flexible to change.  I had to learn to transition to one surrounding culture to the next.  I may have had a crazy lifestyle moving every three years, but it made me who I am today.

My passion is traveling and learning new cultures and way of life in other countries.  I may not be open to new foods, but I do try.  Because of the moving situation throughout the military life, it made me want to travel.  I cannot stay in one place too long.  I start to itch for something new.  I guess this can be good in a way.  I am not afraid of change and I get to meet people from all over.

I am curious where my passion will lead me to.  Will I be living in a different country?  Will I join the service just so that I can have the same lifestyle I grew up in? Who knows.  I am just going with the flow and live my life to the fullest and enjoy every step I take.

My Goals

My goals is to become a physical therapist.  I am aiming to help wounded service members and give them a second chance in activity and mobility in life. I have been accepted to QUEENS UNIVERSITY in Charlotte, NC.  There I will study Exercise science/Kinesiology, in hopes to getting an intern with the NFL or NBA for a semester and then intern in a hospital setting.

I am still debating on joining the Air Force ROTC program in Charlotte.  Although I am a military child, I am not yet sure if the military route is how I want to choose my path.  I do now I want to be surrounded by service members and their community, because I am familiar and comfortable with such community, the same community I grew up in.

My main Events

I am a sprinter and mid-distance swimmer.  My favorite event is the fly, however, one of the hardest strokes to swim.

How do I help my community?

Being part of a community is very important to me. I believe that if I can teach one child to swim, I am saving their life knowing that I taught them swim safety.



I am a certified lifeguard and swim instructor. I have been life guarding and teaching swim lessons since 2020.



I am team captain in my swim team and love coaching others on safe technique and coaching through tough training.



Although I spend most of my time in the pool, I do like volunteering whenever I can. I put in a few hours for the National Honor Society.
