Stroke Clinics

These optional clinics are offered on Saturdays July 13 and July 20 from 10:30 to 11:30 am  to provide additional practice for swimmers who are 7 years of age or older looking to improve specific stroke techniques.

Volunteering

There are many opportunities for you to assist our team this season.  We rely on parent volunteers to help as timers at all meets.  We ask that each family provides one person to time a lane at two meets  (a timer records times in one lane for half a meet).  Parents provide donuts and juice for swimmers on Thursday mornings once meets have started.  The day before Champs we will have a spirit party!  Look for opportunities to sign up on the Shutterfly Share site!  (see below)

Suits

The Belmont Stingrays have a team swimsuit. While encouraged, you are not required to purchase a suit for your child.  We have previously had a two-year rotation for team suits.  Beginning this season, and continuing thereafter, we will have a core suit with team-embroidered logo.  These more durable suits will remain the same color/design every season and can be reordered when needed.  Suits will be ordered through Wilkinson Imprinted Sportswear (Sylvania, OH).  Order forms and a link to our team store can be found below.

Fee

The fee for each swimmer includes all practices, stroke clinics, and meet expenses.  This fee also includes a team t-shirt and cap (which must be worn at all meets).  You may be asked to contribute a few dollars for the spirit party if your child is attending.  Swim Team fees are billed through Belmont.

Second swimmer of family: $120
Each additional swimmer of family: $110

Shutterfly Share

Our NEW website:  https://belmontcountryclubswimteam.shutterfly.com/

In order to manage a team of over 100 swimmers we will use Shutterfly Share to communicate messages, schedule events, upload pictures, and indicate availability for each meet.  Any updates, changes, cancellations due to weather, etc. will be pushed out from this site.  Shutterfly Share has an iOS app for iPhone in addition to the website.  After all swimmers have been added to our roster (using the email you provide) you will be sent an email to connect to the site.
