Swim Team Gear
Newsletter #6

Dear Stingrays Families,

Congratulations on a job well done at time trials. All of your swimmers are off to a great start. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our volunteers. Without all of you, it would be impossible to run a swim meet. With the start of regular season swim meets beginning June 22nd, we encourage you to pay close attention to the upcoming newsletters. If you have any questions, please email the coaches and the board at

Our regular practice schedule starts Wednesday, June 19th.

Due to the late end of the school year, there will be no practice on Monday and Tuesday.  There will, however, be evening lessons on those nights.


Morning Practices:

Mini Stingrays: 8:45-9:15 am Monday through Thursday. Please note that Mini Stingrays are welcome to attend the 11:00 am practice on Fridays so that they may join in on "Fun Friday" activities.

Meet at Springlake (away)

Our first regular season meet is this Saturday, June 22nd, at Springlake Swim Club (228 Fallsbrook Road, Timonium).  Please plan to arrive at Springlake and check in with the coaches by 8:15 am and be ready for warm-ups by 8:30.  The meet will start promptly at 9:00.  If you must leave early for other commitments, please make sure the coaches know not to put your swimmer(s) in later events, and please do not sign up for second half volunteer jobs.  Please commit your swimmer(s) by the end of practice on Tuesday, June 18th.  If you need assistance committing your swimmer(s) for meets or signing up for volunteer jobs in Team Unify, please see a board member at practice.


Volunteer Sign-Ups

Thank you to all of you who have been so enthusiastic about signing up for jobs.  Please keep the following in mind:  1. Please make sure when you’re signing up for jobs that you are planning to attend the meets.  If you are unsure if your swimmer is swimming, please wait until you are sure before signing up.  2.  Except in the event of illness or emergency, if you are unable to fulfill your volunteer role, you are required to find a replacement for yourself.  Please see Michelle Barbe if you have any questions about any of the above.

For those of you who have not picked up team shirts and caps, they have been placed in your family folder located in the pavilion.  Please pick them up at your earliest convenience.
