ECI is a fun, two day invitational where the Stingrays swim as a team, competing against approximately ten other teams. Families choose which events their swimmers will participate in on one or both days of the event. In years past, many of our swimmers have achieved new personal best times! Please visit the "ECI Meet" section of the Stingrays website (under the “Events and Meets” tab) for complete information about the event.
Location: Freedom High School, 1050 Neroly Rd, Oakley
When: Saturday, July 13th-Sunday, July 14th. Note that this meet runs longer than a regular meet so be prepared with lots of games and food to occupy the little ones between their swims! There will be a team area assigned for the Stingrays to set up camp.
Registration: Parents select which events their swimmers will participate in. You may sign up for one or both days. Saturday events = 7/8 and 9/10 IM and Butterfly/Back/Medley Relays for all swimmers. Sunday events = 11/12, 13/14, and 15-18 IM and Breast/Free/Free Relay for all swimmers. Your swimmer will only be assigned to relays if they are already swimming individual events that day. If you are unable to stay into the late afternoon, please note that on your registration form so the coaches don't assign your swimmer to a relay team. The registration form will be available a few weeks prior to the actual event. Note there is a $5 splash fee (meet entry fee) per swimmer and it is $5 per individual event per swimmer. Fees for relays will be covered by the team. Please fill out the registration form and place the form with payment (check made payable to Benicia Stingrays) into an envelope and turn it in poolside by (July 2nd).
Volunteer Assignments: All participating families are expected to fulfill a volunteer shift each day that their swimmer participates. These jobs will be assigned a day or two before the actual event. This is separate from the regular volunteer requirement that all families must fulfill during the regular swim season.
Additional Information: Meet Sheets are not sent out for ECI. Instead, you may purchase a program the morning of the meet for a nominal fee. A snack bar is available throughout the day where food items can be purchased for cash. Additional vendors (selling ECI t-shirts and other swim related items) will be present.
