EY Cayman continues to support the Stingray Swim Club and Cayman Swimming. Sponsorships such as this have enabled the club to grow and hire a second swim coach so that all Stingray members can continue to receive professional coaching.
It has also allowed the club to start a high school development program for students who want to swim, but whose school or personal commitments prevent them from committing to the 16 to 20 hours a week that full-time swimmers must put in.
The EY Cayman Sprint Meet also provided training for a number of Cayman’s swim officials.
Amanda Roberts, Stingray Swim Club’s president, in her capacity as training coordinator for the Cayman Islands Amateur Swimming Association’s technical officials, used the meet to provide training for officials.
