East County Invitational
The 41st annual East County Invitational (ECI) meet is taking place on July 8th and 9th and is open to all Stingray swimmers interested in participating in the event. The Stingrays swim as a team, competing against approximately ten other teams. Families choose which events their swimmers will swim in on one or both days. Please visit the ECI Meet section of the Stingrays website (under the “Events and Meets” tab) for complete information about the event, but here are some important details:
- Please print the meet entry form (you can access it by clicking here), and check the events your swimmer(s) will be participating in. Please submit only one entry form per family.
- There is a $5.00 entry fee per event and a $4.00 “splash fee” per swimmer. Please submit the entry form and check (made payable to Benicia Stingrays) to the clear Tupperware located near the family folders.
- The deadline to turn in meet entry forms is Friday, June 30th. No late entries will be accepted!
- ECI will be taking place at a new location this year—it is no longer being held at Los Medanos College. The new site for ECI is Freedom High School located at 1050 Neroly Road, Oakley, CA 94561.
- All families are required to fulfill a volunteer shift which will be assigned the day prior to the event. Families are only required to volunteer on days their swimmer is swimming. Parents can hire a teen to complete their shift. A contact list for these teenagers is in the “Job Substitutes” link under the Team Info section of the Stingrays website.
