MAY 19 UPDATE

Hi Stingrays,

Here is what you will need to know for next week!

Victoria Day, May 22

There will be NO PRACTICES on Monday, May 22nd! This includes both regular program and Masters practices. Enjoy the long weekend!

Time Trials Sign-Up

The sign-up for Time Trials closed the evening of May 15th at 9:30pm. If you have not yet signed up, but would like to, please be sure to email your child’s coach prior to Monday May 22nd at 9:30pm.

If you are planning on attending practice on the afternoon of May 25th, you must sign-up for Time Trials, as there are no formal practices scheduled for that afternoon!

Please note, Little Stingrays are not eligible to compete in the Time Trials event, but are welcomed and encouraged to come and watch some of our fellow Stingrays race in our own pool!

Athletes Choice will be at LOP on the evening of Time Trials with some new gear – you can check out the website here.

Kigoos Meet Sign-Up

The sign-up for the Kigoos meet on June 3-4 closes on Monday, May 22nd at 9:30pm! Please be sure to have your entries completed prior to this date – you can access the sign-up here.

May-Days Parade

We are still desperately in need of some parent volunteers to help in coordinating our upcoming May Days Parade float! Please visit this form if you are able to help us out in any way, shape, or form.

Little Stingrays

Practices will begin on Friday, June 2nd! We recognize that a 3:15 start time may place some families in a pinch with it being so close to the time school gets out, so there are no worries if your child arrives to practice after the 3:15 start time. The kids will be doing a 15-minute activation and sticker time prior to getting in the water, so as long as you’re able to arrive around 3:30, you’ll be good to go. Unfortunately, we have to make do with the times the Corporation has given us at LOP for this season.

Sometimes if the weather is not the greatest, the kids may get cold in the water relatively quickly. We recommend purchasing a wetsuit for your child if you know they are prone to getting cold quickly! You may be able to find some locally, or you can also find some online here.

Morning Practices

Our morning practices have began! If you are not planning on attending an AM workout, please let your coach know!! We had one practice last week that no swimmers showed up to. It’s frustrating for us as your coaches as we are at the pool bright and early and we expect swimmers to arrive unless we have been notified otherwise.

Volunteer Coaches

The sign-up for June availability can be found here. Please be sure to have submit your availability for the month by Wednesday, May 24th at 9:30pm. If you do not submit your availability, you will not be placed on the schedule!
