The Winter Haven Stingrays Swim Team is sponsored by the City of Winter Haven and supported by the parents of Stingrays swimmers and our Masters swimmers. WIN Stingrays is a club member of USA Swimming and United States Masters Swimming.
We are privileged to call the Rowdy Gaines Olympic Pool our year-round home and training facility. Named in honor of the three-time Olympic gold medalist and US Olympic Hall of Fame swimmer, Winter Haven is Rowdy Gaines' hometown. It is at this facility we host two annual invitational swim meets: our long course meet, "The Rowdy Cup", and our short course meet, "Get Rowdy". These attract competitors on swim teams from Florida, other states, and teams with international affiliations.
Swimmers of any skill level, ages five and older, are encouraged to join our team and become a Stingray. Our athletes learn life lessons, build self-confidence, self-discipline, integrity, and develop respect for friendships that will last a lifetime.
