Summer Swim Team
Begins June 3rd
The Stingrays are the youth swim team at the EdgarMay Health and Recreation Center. The mission of the CRV Stingrays is to promote lifetime physical fitness and wellness by teaching the skills and techniques of competitive swimming. We celebrate both individual and team achievements in an environment that develops responsibility, respect, honesty, and caring while striving to serve the needs of the diverse local community.
Beginning swimmers or those that can complete 1 lap of backstroke and freestyle. These swimmers are generally 10 and under. Coaches will work in and out of the water to teach each swimmer proper swimming skills, with a focus on strokes. The swimmers will also progress to longer lengths of swimming in order to give them the endurance they need for shorter races.
Practice times: Monday, Wednesday and Friday: 4:00-5:00 pm
JUNIOR TEAM: $245
Each swimmer must be 8 years old, be able to swim 50 yards of each stroke and a 100 IM with minimal corrections. They will work on improving proper swimming technique. These swimmers will swim longer yards and multiple sets, which allows them to feel and change any part of the stroke and turns that may need improvement. Coaches will work in and out of the water.
Practice times: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 5:00-6:30 pm
SENIOR TEAM: $325
Each swimmer must be 12 years old and/or have coach’s approval, be able to swim 100 yards of each stroke, a 200 IM and know all of the correct turns and starts. We focus a little less on technique and more on training. This group will swim a variety of sets from 25 yards to 1 mile. Swimmers will become better rounded in the styles and lengths of races.
Practice times: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 5:00-6:30 pm; there will be an extra Dry Land Session on Thursday in our fitness center from 5:00-6:00pm.
The Stingrays compete in the Vermont Swim Association and compete with local southern Vermont communities on Tuesday evenings. There are some meets on Saturdays and Sundays.
