Please review Swim South Whidbey’s COVID-19 Safe Start Plan prior to registering.
South Whidbey Stingrays
We are a novice swim team whose mission is to provide a fun and inviting atmosphere to learn the four 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. Swimmers will be placed in a practice group based on age, ability and space available.
Swimmers must be able to swim 25 yards of freestyle with side breathing, 25 yards of backstroke and must know how to swim breaststroke.
