2021 STINGERS SEASON UPDATE!!! (Updated 1/27/2021)
Please Check Back Regularly for Updates as the Season Gets Closer

Stinger Families,

The Stingers had a great 2020 season given all the restrictions and safety protocols that were in place. By the end of the summer, 60 stingers hit the water safely spread out. Having any season at all was an amazing accomplishment and it would not have been possible without the efforts of our swim team families, the swimmers, but most importantly our coaching staff!

The 2021 season is still taking shape. The Colonial Swim league is taking a slow and measured approach as they did last year. We will hopefully know more after their league meeting early in February. The Burke Centre Conservancy has not held any discussions about the pools we rely on yet. We are hoping they will be able to give us the same access to the pools they did last summer (or more).

We hope the 2021 season will be able to return to "normal". If it is not able, we are planning to be able to offer a program similar to (or better than) what the Stingers were able to offer last season. Please register early! If we do end up being forced to limit the number of swimmers we have in our program, priority will be given to those who have registered first. In other words, if you are a returning swimmer and wait to see, then we can't guarantee you a spot. Our capacity will depend on safety protocols and the number of pools we have access to.

Our team is a summer developmental and competitive swim team that includes year-round opportunities offering high quality professional coaching and technique instruction for all ages and abilities. The goal of our team is to provide every member an opportunity to improve swimming skills and achieve success at his or her level of ability, from novice to international competitor.

All members are welcome and encouraged to be involved in team activities.

The Burke Centre Stingers, part of the Burke Centre Swim Club, is located in Burke, Virginia and competes in the Colonial Swim League (CSL). Our competition pool address is 5701 Roberts Parkway Burke, VA 22015 (not a legal mailing address).
