Kigoos Meet Sign-Up

B4 Meet Sign-Up

The sign-up for B4 will be closing on Friday May 24th at 9:30pm! If you would like to attend please be sure sign-up here.

May-Days Parade

The Stingrays will have a float in this years May Day’s Parade! The parade is on Sunday May 26th and there will be more details to come.

Little Stingrays

Practices will begin on Monday, June 3rd! We recognize that a 3:15 start time may place some families in a pinch with it being so close to the time school gets out, so there are no worries if your child arrives to practice after the 3:15 start time. The kids will be doing a 15-minute activation and sticker time prior to getting in the water, so as long as you’re able to arrive around 3:30, you’ll be good to go. Unfortunately, we have to make do with the times the Corporation has given us at LOP for this season.

Sometimes if the weather is not the greatest, the kids may get cold in the water relatively quickly. We recommend purchasing a wetsuit for your child if you know they are prone to getting cold quickly! You may be able to find some locally, or you can also find some online here.

Morning Practices

Our morning practices have began! If you are not planning on attending an AM workout, please let your coach know!!

Kelowna Ogopogo Invitational Swim Meet

The club is excited to be attending an away meet offered to the ENTIRE club this summer and would love to have as many swimmers representing the Stingrays as possible! The meet is on the weekend of July 6th-7th and the sign-up can be found here.

The following are the two accommodations where the Stingrays have booked to stay for the weekend:
