Hi Stingrays,

Here are your important updates for the week!

May Days Parade Info

This Sunday is the May Day’s Parade and there are just a few reminders on when and where to be at drop-off and pick-up! Swimmers should be dropped off between 10 am and 10:30 to help with decorating the float. Our float will be located on Elliot Street just across from River Road. At the end of the parade we will be stopping to let the kids off the float on Garry Street, by the tennis courts around 1:00 pm. Please be sure to pick up your child from this location, or make other arrangements for them to be picked up by someone else! Our coaches will wait with the kids until they are picked up, however we cannot assume responsibility for any who may leave without being picked up by a parent or friend. Here are a few other friendly reminders about the parade to keep in mind:

Please be aware that the parade route has changed for the 2017 May Days Parade due to construction work along 47A Street. 

 The marshaling area for Ladner Pioneer May days parade will be closed to all general traffic, including drop offs for parade entrants, at 10 am on Sunday, May 28th.  Please either drop off any participants before 10 am or park and escort them to their float.  

The roads closed at 10am will be: River Road, Georgia Street, Delta Street at Bridge Street, and Elliot Street at Westminster Ave.

Any and all Stingrays are encouraged to participate in decorating and riding the float – the more the merrier!


Time Trials

A big thank you to all who came out and volunteered and participated in last night’s time trials event! It was a huge success and both kids and parents had a great time.


Meet Sign-Ups

Deadlines are fast approaching for some of your favourite meets! The sign up for B4 closes on Monday at 9:00pm, you can access it here.

SUPER 7 SIGN-UP CLOSES ON FRIDAY, JUNE 2ND! Please be sure to have your entries completed by this date! We are anticipating a lot of people will be signing up for this meet (we’re hoping to break 100 swimmers!), so entries take us a while to get through, hence the super early deadline. We only have 29 swimmers signed up so far, but we’re hoping for lots more! You can access the sign-up sheet here!


Team Practice

We will be hosting our first team practice of the season on Friday June 2nd 3:30-5:00pm! Little Stingrays, you will also be included during this Team Practice in place of a regular practice for the afternoon! This will be a great way for all of our swimmers to interact and get to know one another.

There will be a potluck/picnic following the team practice at Memorial Park at 5:30pm! More details will be released next week.
