Swim Team

Welcome to the Stingray’s website

The Greater Forsyth Swim League (GFSL) is planning for a summer swim league and so are we!

GFSL has released a meet schedule (black button link below). GFSL is also granting a concession to those swimmers that would have had their final year of eligibility last summer (those that were 18 years old as of May 31, 2020). These swimmers ARE eligible to return this summer for a final year. This is the only year the concession will be in place.

This is what we know…

  • We plan to hold Pup Camp (May 17th-20th).
  • Age group designated afternoon practices will begin May 24th @ 5-7:30 PM (M-Th).
  • Time trials –will be held 6/5/21 at  8:30am
  • Age group designated MORNING practices will begin June 9th @ 8:30-10:30 AM (M-F) once school is out. *Note NEW practice time.
  • We will have a 6 meet season with 3 home meets and 3 away meets (June 8th, June 15th, June 17th, June 22nd, June 29th, and July 6th).
  • Greensboro Aquatic Center will host League Finals on Sunday, July 11th.
  • We will NOT have our usual Kick Off Party.
  • City Meet is tentatively set for 6/25/21 

 

2021 GFSL MEET SCHEDULE

 

This is what we don’t know…

Will we need to split practices? Will we be able to hold our meets in person with another team? Will spectators be permitted on deck for a meet? Some of these answers will be determined by our participant numbers but largely by the state of the COVID crisis. At this point, we do not plan to have a required Sign Up for swim team practices. Swimmers will be open to come to their age group designated practice times. However, in order to limit numbers at the pool during afternoon practices once schools close, please use this time only if you cannot make the morning practice.
