Lap-apalooza is NEXT Wednesday

Good Morning Stingrays!

Lap-apalooza is almost here!!!!

Music!  Fun in the Sun!  Lots and Lots of Laps Being Swam!  Delicious Breakfast!  Raising money for your favorite team!  Doesn't it sound like a perfect way to start a summer day?!?!

Are your swimmers working hard on obtaining their pledges for Lap-apalooza on Wednesday, June 20th?  Have they sent out email requests to family and friends? Made that call to Grandma and Grandpa? Asked their favorite and most generous neighbors?  Sent out requests through their social media?  Worked extra side jobs for you to earn money to donate?

Please keep in mind 100% of the money raised goes back to your Benicia Stingrays. Funds are used to help keep registration costs way down, provide coaching support, and replace training and meet equipment.

A $10.00 minimum pledge, per swimmer, is required to participate in the event. 

If your child does not participate for whatever reason, please do not send them to the pool for regular practice.  Make sure to inform those that look after your kiddos during the day, there will be NO PRACTICE on Wednesday, June 20th. 

Here is what the morning will look like:

9:00am to 10:00am (8:40 check in time) 11 and up swimmers will take the plunge.

10:00am Breakfast for the 11 and ups

10:15am to 11:15am (9:55 check in time) 10 and under swimmers will accept the challenge.

11:15am Breakfast for the 10 and unders

11:15am to 12:30pm FREE SWIM 

We will also serve a light breakfast.  Please help contribute to the breakfast by volunteering to bring something delicious and nutritious to help re-energize the kids after their hard work in the pool.  You can email me at to so graciously let me know what you will be provide.  No idea what to bring? Don't worry, I have a list of items for you to choose from. 

We also NEED volunteers to help count laps, set up, cleanup, and serve breakfast (sign ups will be avaiable on our site later today or tomorrow).  Helping out will be out the the "goodness of your heart" because we still need your commitment to all your hours to help run the meets this season.  

Thank you Stingrays for your time, attention and energy into making this our most successful Lap-apalooza to date!  You all are so appreciated!
