First Week of Practice!

Posted by Chestnut Oaks Stingrays at May 16, 2021 9:52PM PDT

We are so excited to begin our 2021 Swim Team Season tomorrow!

Unfavorable pool weather will not stop us from starting our season! On Monday, we will still have practice (on land) so our swimmers can meet our coaches, teammates, and start conditioning while having fun; please be sure your child is wearing sneakers.

TUESDAY, MAY 18, 11 & Older swimmers only will have in-water practice. 10 & under will have another dry practice. All ages will begin practice in the water starting Wednesday, 5/19.

On Wednesday (5/19) and Thursday (5/20) we will hold New Swimmer Evaluations just prior to their 4:30 practice (please arrive a few minutes early).

For those who missed our Parent Meeting, we look forward to seeing you tomorrow at 5 pm under the pavilion to review changes and details about our season, as well as answer any questions you might have.

Please remember any child under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult during all practices.

Please remind your child to bring a towel and goggles to practice each day.

The pool opens weekdays to general membership starting June 1 from 2-8 pm; until June 1 no other swimmers are allowed in the pool other than swim team swimmers during their practice time. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. Feel free to lounge at any available table while you watch your swimmer.


Please join us for a CORA Stingrays spirit night Wednesday, May 12 from 3-9 pm at Gelati Celesti. 20% of proceeds will benefit our swim team when you mention Chestnut Oaks Stingrays Swim Team at checkout!

Gelati Celesti is located in the Gold’s Gym Plaza at 8906 A West Broad Street, Richmond, VA 23294
