Stingrays Swim Team

Through practice and competition the Le Mars Stingrays Swim Team strives to make each swimmer the best they can be while having fun. The Stingrays Swim Team gives swimmers of all ages and experiences the chance to improve swimming skills while building friendships and healthy habits that last a lifetime. Each day of practice the swimmers will be instructed on stroke mechanics, and participate in swimming drills to improve their stroke and build endurance. All swimmers will be able to compete in swim meets for place ribbons. Swim team is for youth ages 6-18. The 4 basic swim strokes used in competition are: freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly. Knowledge of these four strokes is helpful, but not necessary.
