Stingrays Swim Team

The Stingrays Swim Team is for any age. The team aspires to create an environment where the swimmers enjoy the experience of swimming through improvement of their stroke and racing techniques, improved personal race times, appreciation of team friendships and team spirit. We offer a competitive swim team, as well as a non-competitive developmental team.

We hope that each swimmer will take full advantage of the team.

Mission
The EPRC Aquatics Department gives training in competitive swim to swimmers of all abilities. We will provide an opportunity for our swimmers to reach their goals.

Vision
As a department we want our swimmers to be confident in the water. We will work on sportsmanship, discipline and drive to be an all-around swimmer.
