Does your child swim, enjoy competing, meeting new friends, and having fun in the water... Independence Stingrays Swim Team is for YOU!!! The 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 has been 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 bussed 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. Swim Meets are scheduled on various nights through the week as well as some weekends during the season. For reference ONLY Independence Stingrays Swim Team 2021 practices: STILL TO BE DETERMINED
