Stingrays Practice Schedule

We take pride in our one big Stingray Family, but to make the practice schedule clear as to when your Stingray should be at practice, we have divided the team into three practice groups.

A1 Group – Consisting of mostly 8 and under swimmers or any swimmer who needs to learn the four strokes or needs to develop their swimming endurance before moving up to the Stinger group.

Stinger Group - Consisting of 9 and over swimmers who have advanced beyond the A1 group, but may still need extra stroke attention. The Stinger group will practice with the BOTTTOS group and follow the same practice plan, but with adjustment to intervals and yardage.

BOTTTOS Group – Consisting of high school swimmers, national and zone qualifiers or any swimmer who is ready.

The number of practices your Stingray attends is up to your family. General guidelines are that the A1 group make a minimum of two practices per week, while the Stinger and BOTTTOS groups make as many as possible (if you can be there, be there). We are flexible to meet school and family needs, but we do ask that you and your swimmer, in order to get the full benefit of what our wonderful team has to offer, make a commitment to our Stingray Family.
