Olympian Rebecca Soni visits the Stingrays!

During the past week, the competitive group swimmers were excited to work with Rebecca Soni, six-time Olympic medalist (3 gold, 3 silver) and former world record holder in the 200-meter breast stroke.  Rebecca was generous with her time and talents, sharing her inspirational story with the swimmers and working with them in the pool.  JH Stingrays were delighted to host Rebecca and hope to see her again!  Thanks to Coach Cindy, the JH Stingrays Board, and all the other parent and community support that made Rebecca's visit possible!

SWEETHEART MEET BLEACHER PREDICAMENT

Weeks ago we requested to use the JES bleachers for our meet so we would have additional seating.
JES agreed to allow us to use their bleachers for our swim meet. 

However, we were just informed that the JES bleachers are at the HS and they have no way to get them here for the meet.

Therefore, any JHSR swimmer or parent who plans on sitting during the meet MUST bring their own folding/camp chair.

There will not even be enough seating for the visitors.

Pre-Competitive Spring Session - registration opens February 18

Pre-Competitive Session 3 (Spring) registration will be available for all new families on Tuesday, February 18 at 6:00 p.m. MT.  A registration link will be posted to the home page as well as under the "Parent Guide to Team and Meet Registration" tab at that time.

The Pre-Competitive Spring session runs from April 7 to June 4.  Practices are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:45-5:30 p.m.

A mandatory swim test and parent meeting for all swimmers new to Stingrays will be held at the Rec Center lap pool (date and time TBD).  You will be contacted directly by email with this information.  The purpose of the swim test will be for lane placement, not to see how well swimmers swim. Lane placement will depend on ability and endurance. Please report to Coach Cindy at the starter end, near the Lifeguard's room. Bring a water bottle, wear swim goggles, and long hair must be tied back, or in a swim cap.  You must have all registration completed online in order to participate.

Space for the Spring Session is limited. You will be expected to complete the entire Session, and to participate in any local swim meet or competition (TBD), if only for one event, or to cheer on your team mates. Parent volunteer participation is mandatory for any swim event as well.  For a more detailed description of pre-competitive group expectations, please visit the blogspot tab here.
