Make a SPLASH this summer...
on the Stingrays Swim Team!
Participants of the Stingray Swim Team compete in the North Central Illinois Swim Conference. In order to be eligible, swimmers must be between 5-18yrs of age as of June 1, 2017 and must complete the following requirements:
- 8yrs and under - must have completed Green Shark swim course in Starfish Swimming lessons OR swim 25 yards using a freestyle stroke, without stopping or clinging to the wall/lane lines.
- 9yrs and above - must have completed Electric Ray stroke course in Starfish Swimming lessons OR swim 50 yards using a freestyle stroke without stopping.
A comprehensive assessment will be completed the first week of in-water practice to determine if the swimmer will be accepted and their practice group. Any swimmer unable to meet the requirements will not be permitted to participate and will receive a full refund.
Practices will begin in late May and are held in the evenings while District 158 is still in session. Upon dismissal for the summer, practices are held as early as 7:00am. Younger swimmers typically begin after 8:00am.
Practice will range between 1-2 hours. Swimmers must attend a minimum of 4 days of practice each week.
Meets are held on Tuesday evenings June-July at Stingray Bay and other pools in the surrounding area.
Strong parental commitment is integral to the success of the Stingray Swim Team. Volunteers are needed for home and away swim meets, the Rubber Ducky Race, banquet and more.
A mandatory informational meeting will be held on Sunday, April 30, 2017 at the REC Center. The meeting for New Swimmers/Parents is from 1:00-2:00pm and an open-house style from 2:00-3:30pm for returning swimmers and parents. All members must attend this meeting for team suit and apparel sizing, volunteer sign-up, duck ticket pick-up, waiver and team t-shirt forms, and general swim team information.
