Here's some news from our President plus all the goodies about our upcoming Awards celebration.
1. NEWS FROM OUR PRESIDENT
Happy end of Summer Stingray families,
As we approach our awards ceremony, we turn our attention to preparing for next year. This year was a successful season of transition with super new coaches and many new board members. Coach Steve and Joe will be back next year as many of your Board members. We do have a few positions open. If you would like to volunteer for one of the three positions open, please email email@example.com or call 415.350.7562. Please feel free to nominate someone you think would be good for any of these positions. Our team is only as good as our swimmers and their volunteer families. Your Board works year-around, meeting once a month, to schedule meets and plan for the summer season. Please consider becoming part of the Board if you have the time and energy to dedicate.
