July 3rd Torchlight Parade

  • For those families participating in the annual Torchlight Parade, here's what you need to know:
    • Families should gather near the corner of First Street and B Street at 6:00.  The Stingrays will be in spot "42" which is on the right hand side of B Street (facing First Street).  The parade begins at 6:30.
    • Please have your swimmer wear their team shirts.  Parents are welcome to walk with the team as well.  If you have Stingray Spirit Wear, now is a great time to show some team spirit!
    • We'll need two adults or teens to pull wagons during the parade (one will hold bottles of water, the other will hold candy to pass out).  The wagons will be picked up by our team's Social Director, Debbie Lecair, at the end of the parade.

No Practice July 4th

  • Remember, there will be no practice this Thursday, July 4th due to the holiday!
