Beat the Heat will reach community

Stingray Swim Club is inviting all swimmers to “Beat the Heat” this summer with two fun swim meets followed by a stroke clinic with Stingray’s coaches David Pursley and Tim Leonhart. 

Beat the Heat is designed to be fun, while also reaching out to the community and introducing more children to competitive swimming. The Beat the Heat meets are on July 10 and July 17 at the Lions Pool. 

Swimmers, 6 years and older, will take part in events such as the 25 meter freestyle, 25m backstroke, 50m noodle race or 25m rubber ducky challenge followed by the Stingray coaches clinic which will focus on stroke techniques. 

“It was an easy decision to support Beat the Heat,” said Rich Ellison of OneTRADEx. “I have seen the positive impact of swimming first hand on my three children who all swim competitively.  

“This is a fun meet which will allow the kids to have some fun and then to work on their stroke technique under the supervision of trained and qualified swim coaches.” 

The swim meets are from 6-7:30 p.m. and the stroke clinics run from 7:30-8 p.m. Registration is at the gate, at 6 p.m., and registration is $5.
