Battle of the Ages

Description

Battle of the Ages is a 2 day Saturday-Sunday invitational open to all Stingrays swimmers.  This meet is unique in that swimmers compete only against swimmers of the same age (so a 13 year old swimmer will only swim against other 13 year old swimmers, not against 13 AND 14 year old swimmers).  Your family picks the events your child will swim on one or both days.  Additional volunteer duties (beyond your regular season 30 units or buyout volunteer hours) are required for participating families. 

Many of the swimmers get new personal bests at this meet so you are highly encouraged to sign up for this meet!
