Interested in joining the West Bend Swim Club Stingrays?
Step 1: Swim Evaluation
Contact us for a swim evaluation. Each swimmer must be able to complete at least 1 length (25 meters) of freestyle and/or backstroke. We may also evaluate any other stroke you may know. You do not need to be able to do all of the strokes but by seeing everything it will give us a better idea for group placement. All swimming evaluations are done at the West Bend High School pool. E-mail Head Coach Elisa Spaeth at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a time. Swimming evaluations are year round.
After the evaluation you will receive a sheet that states which group your child will be in. You need to make sure to have all proper equipment no later than the 3rd week of practice. (New swimmers equipment: goggles, swim cap and fins) Equipment can be found under the swim group tab or by following this link. (Required Equipment) All equipment can be purchased online by our swim team sponsor A3 Performance.
Step 2: Review Practice Schedules and Group Fees
