Haven't registered for the season yet?

There's no time like the present! Friendly reminder: you MUST be registered in order to get in the water. For insurance purposes we cannot allow any non-registered swimmers in the water, so be sure to register as soon as possible!

As usual, our younger age groups are reaching their caps, with only a handful of spaces left in each one (7-8's and 9-10's in particular!). 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!)
