2021 Fall Conditioning Club
Hi Stingray Families.
We are excited to announce that we will be offering a Fall Conditioning Club. Conditioning Club is a weekly swim offered to keep kids in the water throughout the off season and fine tune their strokes. The coaches will work on technique and endurance.
Swimmers do not have to previously have been a part of our summer team.
The cost for the 8 week session will be $90 and will start on September 26. We will end the week before Thanksgiving with a week off for Halloween. Each clinic will run from 6:15-7:15 on Sunday nights. We will be swimming at Honey Bee and they will enclose and heat the pool in a few weeks.
Please register so we know how many coaches we will need.
We look forward to seeing you there!
2021 Swim Team
I wanted to announce that we will be running a swim program this summer!
Yes, there will be some differences as we do our best to comply with the governor’s guidelines for pools. Check out our "Practices" tab to see our mitigation plan for training sessions.
Also in the "Practices" tab is our practice times for the summer. You'll see we've made a change for the beginning of the season (while school is still in session) in order to limit the amount of swimmers in the practice facility at one time.
We will run a guppies program, which is for kids who don’t yet know how to swim, but are able to tolerate being in the water apart from their parents. Generally that means 4 or 5 is the minimum age.
We'll talk about changes to meets later; the big idea is limiting people in the facility. Those meets will take place in one night, but several sessions. The league has asked us to refrain from doing relays. So they will look different, but not as different as we thought at first.
It looks like we are going to attempt a divisional meet as our final championship meet. We are still in discussions--more on that later.
So, there are a lot of changes. The spirit here is that we want to get kids back in the water, learning to swim and loving to compete—but we will be as smart as we can possibly be to keep those swimmers and their families safe.
If you are in agreement, we can’t wait to see you this summer! Invite your friends! Let’s dive back in!
2020 Summer Swimming
Hi Stingrays Families.
As you can imagine, during this time we still have many more questions than answers about swimming this summer. Here's what I do know:
VBLS (our swim league) is preparing to attempt to hold some sort of modified season.
We won't be able to begin that season until Phase 2 of the recovery plan--and we don't know exactly when we will enter that period. (Early estimates are mid-June.)
We are still discussing practice modifications with the league and with Honey Bee; there will certainly be new procedures in place to keep us all as safe as possible. This may affect our practice hours as well, as ODAC may require additional pool time at the facility.
We will also certainly have to modify meets; I would be surprised if we can have any spectators (except for volunteers). Remember, Phase 2 requires no groups of more than 50 people. The league is currently discussing how to manage meets under that guideline.
So for now, we still have a lot of uncertainty. You are certainly welcome to register online. We are not accepting any registration fees at this time, nor will we until we know for certain that we will have a season. It is good to know how many of you are interested in swimming--but if most of you are not wanting to take the risk, we won't try to force a team. (I think many of us are ready for some kind of activity.)
I will update you as I get more information, and hope you and your families continue to be in good health with steady work.
