The Lakota Stingrays Swim Team represents the Lakota Family YMCA, located at 6703 Yankee Road, in Liberty Township. The mission of the Lakota Family YMCA Stingrays swimming program is to provide young people with the opportunity to excel in the sport of competitive swimming in a safe, fun, and supportive environment. Christian principles are used to teach team members the value of hard work, commitment, discipline, and team work. Swimmers are taught a variety of new skills and given the chance to refine those skills as they progress through the program. Competition at local swim meets is encouraged however we strive to maintain a low-pressure and fun atmosphere. Our coaching staff has a passion for swimming and we are dedicated to helping our swimmers develop that same love for the sport. For more information contact head coach Kody Detter at [email protected]

The concession stand at our home meets is a major source of income for our team. We depend on donations from you, our team parents, to make the concession stand a success.

On the team website at the bottom of the  job sign up  for home meets is a list of needed items that you can sign up for.  By signing up to bring an item, this does not count toward your volunteer requirement. Needs usually include: baked goods, pasta salad, fruit for fruit salad, hamburger toppings (lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, onions, etc.). Please wrap items individually whenever possible, since plastic wrap, serving ware, and time will be in short supply at the meet.

A well-stocked concession stand makes a swim meet more enjoyable for everyone, and your donations go a long way toward helping our team meet financial obligations.

Thank you for your support!
