Get ready, Stingrays! It may be hard to believe – we haven’t even had Easter yet – but it’s time again to get started with Swim Team!
In fact, registration opened on April 6. So get your swimmer signed up and ready. Register online here.
We’re also looking for volunteers to help out with the team. If you’re willing, please sign up online before April 28.
The Stingrays swim team is a parent-run, volunteer organization that serves the children residing in the Stephens Grove and Latta Springs neighborhoods. Practices alternate between the two locations. The team includes more than 100 swimmers, ages 5-18.
The Stingrays mission statement is “To provide quality swim instruction to all swim team participants in a positive and encouraging environment. We further pledge to teach and develop sportsmanship, teamwork, competition, and individual achievement while enjoying the sport of swimming. We will do this through individual and group interaction, both in the water and through social activities.”
As the website also says, the Stingrays “offer a fun and healthy environment where goals are achieved and lasting memories are made.”
If you’re new to Stephens Grove swimming, Saturday, May 11, is an important day. That’s when new swimmers will be tested, and we’ll have an orientation session for new parents. Meet at the community pool. If you can’t make it that Saturday, there will be a makeup on Monday the 13th. (The times for these meetings will be emailed to families.)
Practices start the day after that. Practices are on Mondays and Wednesdays at Stephens Grove, and Tuesdays and Thursdays at Latta Springs.
The first meet will be on Tuesday, June 4, and the fun continues until our End of Year party on July 10.
Between now and start of the season, make sure you know the pool rules, posted on the Stephens Grove website.
Come on out and join the excitement!
