Coach Alexa Away

I will be heading back east for a few days starting next Wednesday and I will be returning on Saturday evening! If you have an urgent matter that needs to be addressed while I am out of town please contact Coach Holly at holly@ladnerstingrays.com! This also applies to any urgent matters regarding the Super 7. If you feel your matter is not urgent please go ahead and still send me an email as I will be checking my inbox throughout the day.

Attached to the weekly update email is a copy of the Super 7 Tentative Entries, please have a careful read through them and if you see something that does not look right please email Coach Alexa with the subject line Super 7 Entry Changes by 5:00 pm tonight.  As well, if you have not signed up for the meet and would still like to do so this is your last chance possible! Please email Coach Alexa with the subject line Super 7 Late Entry  by 5:00 pm tonight to sign up for the meet.

This year is also the 10th Anniversary of the Super 7 so we would love to have as many of you out as possible over the course of the weekend to help celebrate this milestone! On Sunday at 3:00 pm we will be having a short celebration with speeches, cake cutting and a fun relay of alumni swimmers and parents. Make sure to stick around the meet on Sunday afternoon as it is guaranteed to be a fun time!

Relays and warm-up times will be released next week!

Stingray Pump-Up Week

Next week is Stingray Pump-Up Week in preparation for our Super-7 swim meet. Swimmers will be given 5 points each day they participate in the activities and these points will go towards the race for House Cup Champion!


Team Practice

Next Friday we will be hosting our 2nd team practice of the season! Everyone is encouraged to come out and participate including seniors. We will be reviewing/learning some of our cheers and having a House Cup cheer off! Team Practice will be starting at 4:00 pm and will finish up at 5:30 pm.

Note: Little Stingrays will be participating in their regularly scheduled practice at 3:15 pm and at 4:00 pm they will join the rest of the club for cheers. After cheers are completed the Little Stingrays will be dismissed.

Lost and Found

The lost and found bin at the pool is filling up! We will be donating whatever is in the bin at the end of June so please make sure you come and collect any belongings of your family.

As well, we have had some flip flops go home with the wrong owner a couple of times over the past week. Please, double check that the flip flops you wore home are yours as we have a few swimmers who have had to go home barefoot from practice!

Weekly Update June 7th!

Hi Stingrays,

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

Super 7  

Our very own Super 7 is fast approaching! Tentative Entries have been sent out to the club if you notice anything that needs to be changed please email Coach Alexa with the subject line Super 7 Entry Changes no later than Sunday, June 9th at 5:00 pm. If you have not yet signed up and would like to partake in the meet please send Coach Alexa an email with the subject line Super 7 Late Entry no later than tonight at 5:00 pm!

North Delta Development Meet

Next Wednesday, June 12th, is the first development of the season! More information will be released next week regarding the meet.

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!
