We are so excited to be heading into a new season together! As we did last year, we will be sending out regular email updates this season, and also posting information to the team feed and Facebook. Make sure to have your notifications on so that you don't miss a thing!

In future issues, please look for information on upcoming meets and events, volunteer updates, Champs updates, getting to know your board members, Q&A with the coaches, PUPdates, and swimmer of the week features!

Calling all Stingray families!

Our season kickoff and volunteer sign up night is coming up fast! We are so excited to see everyone  Monday, March 25 from 6-8pm  at Giovanni's! Remember, this is when you will choose and sign up for your volunteer position for the season. Slots fill up fast and are first come, first served! IF YOU CANNOT ATTEND, look for an email the week following the event with a link to sign up for what's left!

Itinerary:

6pm: Stingrays arrive en masse at Giovanni's!

6:15: President and Volunteer welcome, reminders, and general business.

6:30-8: Volunteer sign ups (get your questions answered, talk to the chairs, sign up for your slot), Stingrays gear orders open (we will have a couple of devices that you can order from), and socializing!

Come hungry and support the Stingrays at our first FUNdraiser dinner of the year by purchasing dinner at the restaurant!

Haven't registered for the season yet?

There's no time like the present! As usual, our younger age groups are reaching their caps, with only a handful of spaces left in each one. If you're planning to join us for the 2019 season, we recommend registering as soon as possible! Head over to the website at sacramentostingrays.com to register. Questions about registration? Email our registrar Sandy Santiago at  registrar@sacramentostingrays.com .

(Remember, high school athletes can register at a discounted rate due to their shorter practice season!)

Want a way to receive faster, more efficient updates from the team? Make sure to download the OnDeck app from iTunes or Google Play. You will sign in with the same login information you use on our website. Once you download and sign in, change your in-app settings to receive notifications! You will receive a push notification on your device(s) anytime we post something, including general team updates and reminders, as well as last-minute updates (such as practice changes/cancellations).

Note: please also upload a photo of your child(ren) to the app, under their profile! This helps the coaches to get to know who's who, and in the case of an emergency can be invaluable. The coaches thank you in advance!
