Stingrays turn red and green as festive cheer gets serious

Stingray Swim Club members took preparing for the Christmas holidays in their stride and took part in a fun, inter squad Reds v Greens Meet just before the festive break.

The Inter Squad Meet on 21 December saw Stingray Swim Club competitors divided into red and green squads and the friendly rivalry really came out as they all had a great time putting their training to the test in the pool and scope of creativity on deck.

With a number of prizes up for grabs, there were some interesting outfits around and although it was a ‘fun’ meet there were some particularly intense races between Red Team’s Geoffrey Butler and the Green Team’s Matthew Courtis.

Greens were the overall winners although red members are calling for audits of the results!

Ultimately, the winners were the Stingray Swim Club whose team spirit, camaraderie and competitive edge is growing daily.

Swimmers trained the following morning and on Christmas Eve then had three days off before they were back in the pool again by 28 December. With the fun of Christmas behind them Stingray Swim Club are focused now on a competitive Long Course Swim Meet in the Bahamas in mid-February, the Consolidated Water Meet which it hosts at the end of February and then, for those swimmers who qualify, CARIFTA 2013.

Stingray Swim Club is a not for profit Club that trains at the Lions Aquatic Centre.
