The club’s ethos is one of teamwork and self-improvement. The Bronze group is Stingray’s fundamentals group. All four-stroke disciplines are introduced and taught in such a way that enables each swimmer to swim legally in competition. The coaches establish these key swimming skills by teaching basic stroke mechanics early on and developing the initial body position and kicking fundamentals needed.
Bronze group swimmers are introduced to starts and turns early on to ensure they meet the FINA standards because we encourage Bronze members to compete in all our home hosted meets. It is necessary to achieve these standards before competing to avoid disqualification when racing. We emphasize the importance of fun, whilst creating an energetic and exciting competitive environment.
The group meets 3 times per week for 55 minutes. To join the group prior swimming instruction is needed as it is not a learn-to-swim programme.
Required Kit: kickboard and short blade fins
