STINGRAYS PROGRAMS

LAPS
The Stingrays offer our state of the art LAPS program for Elementary and Middle School children.  In LAPS, your child will receive a vigorous and athletic practice while getting some of the finest stroke technique and development in the Southeast. (Over 60 years of coaching on our Staff!) LAPS has, as its central mission, to make professional swimming instruction, structure and athletics accessible to the most kids. We do this in 3 important ways:

1. We break the school year into 6-7 week sessions. (There will be 6-7 sessions throughout the year.) You are not committed to any more than the one that you are in.

2. This sessions approach allows for the freedom to do multiple activities without over-burdening the calendar or the checkbook. Play other sports? Great! You can create the schedule that can run concurrently with your sport OR participate in the off-season. Not sure how much you want to swim? No problem. The 6-weeks-at-a-time format makes trying it out very low risk. If you want more (and you will!), sign up for the next session and add more days.

3. Finally, your cost is determined by the number of days you select. There is no flat monthly rate that you will be locked into. If you want to swim 2x per week, you will pay less than if you want to swim 3x per week. Your commitment is your decision. As you get older and more context is developed, your coaches will guide you to the appropriate levels of commitment. 

If interested in joining our LAPS program at any location, please contact Ron Turner coachron@stingraysswimming.com. Or you can call our main line at 770-325-7292 Ext 1  LAPS website link

Pre & Post High School Program
The Stingrays offers a quality program for pre-High School season and post High School season. The RAYS are Georgia’s finest swim program. Twice the American Swimming Coaches Association has named us the National Stroke Champions.  This is an honor given to the program with the Best Stroke Technique in the USA.  If you are participating in a High School swim team this school year, then this program will help you get a head start. This program is for current Non-USA-Swimming athletes.

Competitive Team
Stingrays offer training and competition for all levels of swimmers seeking individual development and team unity within a nationally recognized competitive swim program. Anyone interested in becoming a Stingrays swimmer is asked to attend a swim evaluation at one of our facilities. Group evaluations for new swimmers are scheduled in the summer, while individual evaluations may be conducted at other times of the year.  During the evaluation, a Stingrays staff member will observe the swimmer performing all four strokes, assign an appropriate group placement within the Stingrays program and discuss the registration process. If interested in joining at our Mountain View Aquatic facility, please contact Coach Pike Hightower  coachpike@stingraysswimming.com  or coachmark@stingraysswimming.com. If interested in joining at our Cherokee County Aquatic Center facility, please contact Coach Larry Baskin coachlarry@stingraysswimming.com. Or you can call our main line at 770-325-7292

Family Commitment Charge
There will be a mandatory $150 commitment/charge per family
Stingrays Swimming is proud to sponsor and help promote and subsidize USA Swimming programs as well as fund scholarships, travel, water fees and team’s equipment costs for Stingrays Swimming. Stingrays Swimming will host the Annual Swim-A-Thon fundraiser in the fall to help achieve these goals. The Online Fundraiser will be active on the website in September, so everyone can start early. The Fundraiser system on our Website offers easy templates for emailing prospects and tracking your donations. Details on the Swim-A-Thon events and prizes will be communicated by the coaches and on the website once the program is finalized and active. (Note that 5% of the proceeds will go to USA Swimming and the remainder will go toward scholarships, travel, and team equipment costs.) The family commitment charge is due December 1st each year.

Although the commitment charge is mandatory, the Swim-A-Thon gives the swimmer’s family the opportunity to defray costs by raising money that would otherwise have been a direct charge to the swimmer’s family. Alternatively, the funds contributed by the swimmer’s family may be tax deductible, in part or in whole, as a charitable contribution.
Consult your tax professional as Stingrays Swimming is not a tax expert and does not purport to be such.

Should the swimmer’s family elect to pay the $150 charge, said the amount can be divided into two installments of $75 each (December 1st and January 1st). You MUST contact the Billing Department via email by November 15th if you wish for the fee to be split. If a swimmer registers in December, the commitment charge is $100; in January $75; in February 1st $50; in March $25 which is invoiced on the day they register.

Registration information and fee structure available at evaluation.
