Swim Team

Welcome to the Stingray’s website

We are very excited about the 2018 Swim Season. Our swim team has been competing now for 29 years – and still growing strong. Coach Jamie Grimstead is returning for his 13th year as head coach for our swim team and we are very fortunate to have him back.

We will also have 3 assistant coaches working with our athletes this summer. Will Rankin, Brianna Chessock, and Leeden Rukstalis are all returning! Our team goals for this season are – HAVE FUN (as always), improve camaraderie and emphasize stroke development. We are continuing this season with our STINGRAY ZONE at all meets for the 10 & unders, an older-to-younger swimmer buddy system and the opportunity to have lessons with our assistant coaches after practice. Our assistant coaches would be happy to help your children out with private swim lessons as well, if you are interested. You can see them directly.

Swim team members not only will become better swimmers, but learn to set and reach personal goals through improving their time and strokes,increasing their level of fitness and “hanging” with friends.

All children who are of the age of 5 – 18 (by June 1) can participate on our swim team. Any swimmer can join our swim team as long as they can swim the length of the pool without assistance.

Team swimsuits are not required but most of our swimmers enjoy having them sothat they match their teammates at each meet and in our team photo. Suits can be purchased from Swim Gear (147 South Stratford Road – behind Midtown Dessertery).
