WEEKLY UPDATE – July 27th

Hi Stingrays,

Here is everything you need to know for next week!

Team Practice

Tonight is our Stingray’s Yule Ball. This is a team practice to cap off the end of our Tri-Wizard tournament! And to celebrate we will be enjoying some delicious Butter Beer. But be wary of Lord Voldemort on this day, as he does not take lightly to large groups of witches and wizards gathering together final team practice of the season!

Practice will be from 4:30-6:00 pm and all regular program Stingrays are encouraged to come out and participate.

Little Stingrays will be swimming during their regularly scheduled practice time (3:45-4:45) and hoping out a few minutes early to join in with learning a new cheer.

Little Stingrays are welcome to come back at 6:00pm to join our potluck at the LOP!
