Rookie Camp and Practice Schedule Changes

Good Evening Stingrays,

It was great to see so many of you Tuesday. Please remember that we have an additional on site registration night next week, Tuesday, March 27th from 5:00-8:00 PM. Please note that onsite registration will end at 8:00 PM instead of 8:30 PM, as previously listed.

We've established a practice calendar, and due to the success of Coach Craig's water polo be teams we will be starting rookie camp April 24th, at the same time as the regular practice season begins.

Rookie camp is very important for our newest swimmers. There so much to learn about swim practice, and rookie camp is the time to do it. New swimmers experience a much high coach to swimmer ratio so they get careful observation and instruction about swimming and pool etiquette. For the young swimmers, they gain confidence in the rookie camp's nurturing environment. Because this is so important, we must slightly adjust our practice schedule to allow the new swimmers their week to get used to Stingray practice.

The practice schedule for all swimmers will be as follows for the week April 24th-April 27th:

6 and under rookie swimmers: 4:30 PM-5:00 PM

7 and up rookie swimmers: 5:00 PM-5:30 PM

6 year-old and under swimmers: 5:30 PM-6:00 PM

7-8 year-old swimmers: 6:00 PM-6:30 PM

9-10 year-old swimmers: 6:30-7:00 PM

11-12 year-old swimmers: 7-7:45 PM

13 year-old and up swimmers: 7:45-8:30 PM

Starting Tuesday May 1st, practice will be Tuesday-Friday:

6 year-old and under swimmers: 4:30 PM-5:00 PM

7-8 year-old swimmers: 5:00 PM-5:45 PM

9-10 year-old swimmers: 5:45-6:30 PM

11-12 year-old swimmers: 6:30-7:15 PM

13 year-old and up swimmers: 7:15-8:00 PM

Thank you for your flexibility as we get the schedules settled.
