 Hi Stingray Families!

Thanks to everyone’s flexibility the past week as we navigate new practice options while McDaniel has been closed. It’s been rough, but Coach Mike said it best last night: we have the toughness and heart to make an outstanding team! A special thanks to all the parent volunteers who stepped up at yesterday’s meet and the rescheduled Springlake meet on Tuesday.

There’s a lot of information (again) and upcoming deadlines in this week’s newsletter, so make sure you read through it all.

MEETS THIS WEEK

Wednesday, July 20th, CCI

South Carroll Swim Club, 1900 West Liberty Rd. Warmups will begin at 3pm.

Saturday, July 23rd, Bolton Hill

Bolton Hill Swim and Tennis Club, 1120 Park Ave (At Dolphin Lane), Baltimore, MD 21217. Registration deadline is Tuesday, please make sure you’ve declared your swimmer.
              *Note: The host pool does not have a parking lot and street parking is limited. Please factor in parking time to get to warmups on time.

PRACTICE

Again, thanks for everyone’s positivity as we worked to find a pool while McDaniel is being repaired. We are so sorry and beyond grateful for this team. Below is a reminder of the practice schedule for this week. A few quick notes as well:

  • If your swimmer attends dryland practice at Dutterer Park: we can’t park in the dirt parking lot, that belongs to a business. Please park along the street by the park.
  • If your child has not had a chance to put their handprint on our banner, please reach out to a board member of email [email protected] so we can arrange a time.
  • Finally, all money for t-shirts, junior champs, and Strahele is due to a board member by Friday, July 22, by the end of dryland practice.
