Welcome to the 2016 swim season! The Monmouth Heights Stingrays swim team will be run by this year’s parent coordinators Tricia Barr and Debbie Prendergast.
Registration for the Stingrays Swim Team will run from Registration Day on May 22nd through the first week of practice. Registration forms will be available at the club on registration day or you can email Tricia Barr at Tricia.email@example.com or Debbie Prendergast at firstname.lastname@example.org. The swim team fee is only $45 per swimmer. Practice is tentatively scheduled to begin on Tuesday May 31st.
The Monmouth Heights Stingrays Swim Team began in the early 70’s. The Monmouth Heights Freehold and Monmouth Heights Marlboro teams are combined to form the Monmouth Heights Stingrays Swim Team. Each team practices separately, with occasional combined practices & events, but join together for swim meets and the end-of-the-season banquet.
The team is a parent run organization. We ask every parent to volunteer to work at least one meet during the season. We will also need committee volunteers to run the Pasta Parties, Ice Cream Social, the end of the season banquet and other events. Refer to the Stingrays page on the MHFRA website for updated schedules, volunteer opportunities and important team information.
In order to join the swim team, the swimmer must be able to swim one length of the pool without touching bottom to ensure the safety of the swimmer. The swimmer’s age group is determined with a cut-off of June 1st.
The age groups are: 8 and Under; 9/10; 11/12; 13/14; 15-18. The last year of eligibility for a swimmer is his/her summer after graduating high school. Once a swimmer begins college, he/she is no longer eligible to swim on the Stingrays team, though we love to have them visit!
