What do I wear and bring to practice?
A competition style swimsuit. Swimmers should have goggles, a swim cap, a towel, and a bottle of water or gatorade. Put your name on everything you bring to the pool.
When does weather affect our swim season?
Two weather events cause practice delays or cancellation: Lightning (sighted or possibly near) and/or hard rain. If a lightning strike is seen, or if thundering is loud overhead, practice will be called for about 30 minutes. Coaches will take the swimmers to the pavilion to wait. Light rain without lightning is no problem; hard rain that prevents a swimmer from seeing the bottom of the pool will cause practice delays or cancellation.
What do parents do during practice?
Parents need to check family folders. Otherwise, have fun watching your swimmer and getting to know the other Stingray parents!
What are the family folders?
Family folders can be found in the black boxes located on the diving board or by the front gate. They contain important information, ribbons, DQ's, etc.
When do swimmers receive ribbons from meets?
All ribbons will be in the family folders by Tuesday after the meet.
