For development meets I will not be sending out tentative entries prior to the meet, therefore if you want your child to attend any development meets you must sign-up via the forms on our website. If you are unsure if you signed your child up please email me at alexa@ladnerstingrays.com and I will confirm your child’s attendance!

Bingo

Our Annual Bingo Night will be held next Friday, June 14! We will be hosting the event in Memorial Park starting at 6:30 pm and finishing up around 8:00 pm. There are some awesome prizes this year including gift cards, chocolate and a portable speaker! Don’t forget this is our first House Cup Challenge and you can earn points for your house through participating.

Little Stingray Parents

A reminder that no parents are allowed on deck past the big shed by the entry gate! Parents are not covered by our BCSSA insurance, thus this rule. If your child needs to use the washroom or change into their swim suit prior to practice, please use the washrooms located in the community centre adjacent to the pool!

We will be walking your child to the gate after their practice is over and will wait with them until they are picked up at the gate! If you are unable to pick up your child after practice, please make other arrangements, and inform your child’s coach so they know who to release your child too!
