Morgan Mann - Stingrays Head Coach
cell: 919-610-0681 email:

I am a Senior at Appalachian State and this will be my sixth year coaching Little Stingers and my first year as the Coach for the Stingrays. I have swam for the Stingrays since I was 9, was on the Leesville Road High School varsity team for four years, and swam for USA Swimming year round teams for 12 years. I would love to provide your child of any age lessons, whether they need help with their technique or want to learn how to swim for the first time! My main goal is not only to help the kids develop their swimming skills, but also to spread my love for the sport.

My name is Gabby Newton and I’m 19 and attend East Carolina University. I have been coaching for 5 years now and loved working with kids so much I decided to major in elementary education! I have also been a lifeguard for 4 summers as well as a nanny. I have been swimming with the Stingrays since I was just 6 years old, and even swam year around for 2 years. I love helping kids learn how to swim and to better their technique. I am open to do any age and any skill level!
