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.
