2021 Preliminary Information
Hello Stingray Fans!
After all of the difficulties 2020 brought us last year, we are looking forward to being back on the pool deck this summer! While our coaching staff and board are doing everything in their power to run things as normally as possible, it is important to know that all events and details pertaining to this season are subject to change with new information. We plan to have a great season while also prioritizing the health and safety of our swimmers and families.
Our season will begin on May 4th, 2021 and will end on July 17th, 2021.
Practices will be held weekly Tuesday - Friday.
May 4th - June 11th practices will be in the afternoon, times are posted on the practice information page.
June 14th - July 16th practices will be held in the morning, times are posted on the practice information page.
Due to COVID restrictions, we will be competing in 3 virtual meets this season.
- We will be competing against 2 other teams in each meet, however only our team will be at our pool. The coaching staff will merge times recorded after each event for scoring purposes.
- The 3 meets are tentatively scheduled for June 5, June 19, and July 10 in addition to 1 mock meet.
- These meets will be shorter as we will only be timing our swimmers.
CHAMP meet is tentatively scheduled for July 16-18, however there are still logistics to be worked out. Coaching staff will keep you updated on new developments as they arise.
If you have any questions about this season feel free to email our Head Coach, Emmy Iannone, at email@example.com
The St Johns Stingrays
Who We Are:
The St Johns Stingrays are a not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting the sport of swimming, enhancing the community experience, and creating a fun, developmental, and inclusive environment for the children in our community. Our goal is to create a fun experience for all levels of swimmers.
We are a part of the St Johns Summer Swim League and are open to children ages 4-18. While we primarily serve the residents of SJGCC, we do allow limited non-resident participation (see non-resident info below).
We are your fellow parents, neighbors, and SJGCC residents. Our team operates on a 100% voluntary basis because we love our neighborhood, our kids, and we believe in our team mission. We are governed by the volunteer-based St Johns Summer Swim League, and we operate with support from the Sampson Creek CDD as well as several other supportive CDDs.
Why should my child join the Stingrays?
The Stingrays were founded in 2002 for the purpose of promoting healthy living, team unity and family participation within our community. In the last 19 years we have seen hundreds of swimmers find a passion for swimming. By joining the Stingrays, your child will become a more proficient swimmer, remain active during the summer break, and enjoy being part of a supportive team setting while also challenging themselves to improve each week. Swimmers and families will have a great time with neighbors and develop new friendships. We welcome all levels of swimmers, and swimming is a great way to keep in shape and remain competitive for other sports! Come join us!

$200 first swimmer, $185 second swimmer, $170 third swimmer, with a family maximum of $555.00. Price includes team shirt and swim cap. Please note that there are additional equipment requirements not included in the registration price.
