Does your child swim, enjoy competing, meeting new friends, and having fun in the water... Independence Stingrays Swim Team is for YOU!!! In a NEW pool with 6 regulation length racing lanes and brand new starting blocks, we are thrilled and looking forward to an exciting season of swimming!! The Independence Stingrays Swim Team is open to all children between the ages of 6-18 years old who are able to swim 25 meters without stopping and unassisted. In order to help ensure the safety of the swimmers, a try-out may be implemented for participants to demonstrate their ability to swim the required 25 meters. The swim team season will run June- July with meets held against community swim teams within the Big Six Swim Club. Independence Stingrays Swim Team members will be bused to out of town meets by the Independence Community School District. Independence Stingrays Swim Team practices are held on weekdays in the early mornings through the season.

Many Volunteers are needed in order for swim team to run successfully.
