South Whidbey Stingrays
SWIM REGISTRATION OPENS MAY 9 AT 9AM!
PROGRAM FILLS QUICKLY!
We are a novice swim team whose mission is to provide a fun and inviting atmosphere to learn the 4 competitive strokes of swimming. Swimmers will develop endurance, strength, work ethic, positive self-image and above all, a love for the sport of swimming. Our coaches are committed to serving both the recreational and competitive swimmer.
We offer 4 different practice groups, based on age, ability and space. Practices are held at Useless Bay Country Club (UBCC) in a heated, outdoor swimming pool. The session will end with an intra-squad swim meet and awards banquet.
Swimmers must be able to swim 25 yards of freestyle with side breathing, 25 yards of backstroke and must know how to swim Breaststroke. See the Swim Team Practice Group Descriptions for more information. New swimmers wishing to join must tryout with Coach Kristi Eager prior to registering.
New swimmers will be placed in the Bronze practice group unless they have prior swim team experience and can meet the Silver or Gold Placement/Advancement Criteria.
Practice group times are subject to change depending on ability and number of kids in each group. Once swim team is full, Coach Kristi will notify swimmers through email what practice group they will be in.
Equipment: Swim suit (jammers for boys, one piece for girls), goggles, swim cap and swim training fins. Equipment can be found at www.swimoutlet.com. New swimmers will receive a Stingray team cap.
