Dear Stingray Families,

We hope you are enjoying the warmer weather and are getting excited about our upcoming season.  We have some quick information to share.  Please read carefully as several of these items require responses from some team members.  As always, if you have any questions, please reach out to the board at [email protected]

 

Deadline for registration is May 1st

We need to have firm count of our team numbers by May 1st to ensure we have adequate coaches and space available.  If you have not registered (or sent in your pool membership information), please do so ASAP.  If you are planning to register but are unable to do so by May 1st, please reach out to the board at [email protected].

 

Last call for personalized caps

If you would like a cap personalized with your swimmers last name, please email [email protected] with your swimmer’s name, the name you want on the cap (please carefully check spelling), and how many you want.  The price is $35 for a set of two caps.

 

Fundraising

The capacity limits are going to have a negative financial impact on the team.  In order to maintain our low registration costs and high quality of coaching, we’re looking for a group of parents who can spearhead some fundraising efforts to help offset the financial loss.  If you are able to assist, please email [email protected].
