Weekly Update May 24th!

Hi Stingrays,

Here is what you need to know for the upcoming week!

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 tonight at 9:00pm, you can access it here. As well, the sign up for the North Delta Development Meet will be closing on Wednesday May 29th at 9:00 pm, you can access it here.

SUPER 7 SIGN-UP CLOSES ON THURSDAY, MAY 30th! 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 want all of our Stingrays to come out and participate in the meet and show our Stingray Pride! You can access the sign-up sheet here.

May Days Parade Info

We are Float #50!  Please ensure all swimmers are at the Ladner Stingray float (look for the giant swimming pool with green tents) by 10:30am on Sunday, May 26 for judging. By the looks of the parade map, we will likely be parked in front of Sharkey’s. Expect to escort your swimmers to the float by foot because the roads will be blocked off at 10:00am.

Swimmers should wear Ladner Stingray shirts and bring their water guns!  We will be shaded by our tent teams but it might be good to apply sunscreen as well.  We will be eating cake as part of the float theme but please send a water bottle for your kids.  The parade does not get rolling until noon so there will be some down time before we start moving through the parade.  We hope to keep the kids busy with a dance party and water gun fight.

There is lots of room for everyone on the float – the more the merrier.  This includes Little Stingrays!

See you Sunday!

Meridian Meat Fundraiser

Our annual Meridian Meats fundraiser is now happening – one week only! The fundraising form can be found attached to Coach Alexa’s weekly update email and 10% of all gift cards purchased are credited back to your fundraising fee.

Forms with cheques (payable to Ladner Stingrays) can be left in the Howard folder or dropped through the mail slot at 4500 46 St. Forms must be received by May 31st and cards will be ready to pick up before Father’s Day. If you have any questions about this fundraiser, please contact Alison at meridian@ladnerstingrays.com.

Team Practice

Next Friday we will be having our second team practice of the season! This practice will take place at the LOP from 4:15-5:30 for regular program Stingrays . We encourage everyone to come out and join us as it is an awesome way to connect with other swimmers that may not be in your normal practice group!

Please Note: Little Stingrays will not be included in this team practice.

June Practice Schedule

We will be switching over to our June Practice Schedule on Monday June 3rd! So have a look to make sure you arrive at the right time for practices as there is some variation from the May schedule!
