Sun Oaks Stingrays

We are a year-round USA-Registered Swim Team. Our motto is, “Kindness – Technique – FUN!!” Kids can join our Otters group at age 7. If you have super swimmers under 7, our swim school is a perfect place for them to learn strokes and build endurance. Level 3 & up can participate in swim meets with our team! Our team attends swim meets monthly in the Spring/Summer & every other month in the Fall/Winter. Swim meets are OPTIONAL. If your child simply loves to swim and is not looking to compete – our team is a welcoming place for all swimmers.

Faqs

What is expected of Parents?

  • Be supportive of coaches. We care about your kids! If you have questions or concerns, please wait until the end of practice to talk to the coach. Please give the coaches and your kids space during practice.
  • If your child attends meets, parents are expected to volunteer & take turns timing. We will brief you on how to “time.” Swim meets are put on solely by volunteers and we can’t do it without you!

What are our mascot & team colors?

  • We are the Stingrays! Navy blue & yellow are our team colors

Where do I buy swim equipment?

What do I need to do if I want to attend meets? 

  • Let your coaches know if you are interested in meets. We will recommend the type of swim meet that is best suited for each child
