Stingrays kept going through heat

Stingray Swim Club members have not had much of a break throughout the summer. They participated in an Inter Squad Meet on 10 August and then hosted a Summer Camp which took place from 13-17 August.

The Inter Squad Meet saw swimmers divided in to two squads, red and blue and competition was fierce, but friendly and the swimmers all had a great time putting their summer’s training to the test.

The Summer Camp was attended by swimmers from a variety of swimming backgrounds and experiences. Lions Aquatic Centre coaches – Andy Copley and Chester Hurlston – were on deck providing the swimmers with warm ups, drills, skills and technique tips and competition in a mini-Olympics format.

Stingray Swim Club director Sally Poole was always there to coordinate multiple applications of sunscreen; provide assistance with swim caps and distribute snacks and lunch.

Stingray Club president Brenda McGrath said: “Summer Camps are a great way to keep our children active during the summer. Swimming is a life skill, great exercise and at this time of year it is always nice to be in the water. The swimmers all had a great time learning, staying fit, having fun and cooling off in the water.”

Stingray Swim Club is a not for profit club which trains at the Lions Aquatic Centre. For more information on Stingray Swim Club or information on registration for the upcoming swim season contact [email protected] or visit our website
