The program is called the Stingrays Swim Team and is for ages five through 18. Swimmers ranging from novices to the highly-skilled and competitive-minded are invited to join. Entry-level swimmers must be able to swim 25 yards of freestyle. Beginners receive stroke instruction and work on fundamentals and conditioning in a low-pressure environment. All swimmers have the opportunity to compete in swim meets. This is a great chance to get involved in a lifetime sport.
