Swim Team

Welcome to the Stingray’s website

We are very excited about the 2020 Swim Team Season. Our team has been competing now for 31 years – and still growing strong. Coach Jamie Grimstead is returning for his 15th year as head coach for our swim team and we are very fortunate to have him back. Andrea Derflinger will return as our Associate Head Coach.

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 home meet potlucks. 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 May 31) 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.

We will also offer Pup Camp. This is designed for swimmers ages 4 and older – either those new to swim team or those who swam for the first time last year. Our aim is to build confidence in our youngest swimmers and to hook a new generation of young Stingray pups in a fun and low stress environment. Although previous swimming experience is not required, familiarity and comfort in the water is necessary. Read more about Pup Camp HERE! Sign up and get more details through Member Splash here

We will have an online team store for swim suit and apparel orders open from April 26th – May 17th. Trial suit fittings will be held at the pool in early-mid April. Stay tuned for dates.
