The Stingrays have been members of the Foothills Swimming Association, a non-profit organization, for over 45 years. As are all teams in the league, we are a parent-run team! Our goal is to provide a family-oriented, yet competitive environment that enables each swimmer to improve his or her technique while fostering fun and good sportsmanship. This year the Stingrays are excited about their 15th year at the Sixth Avenue West pool operated by the Foothills Parks and Recreation District. The pool is conveniently located at 400 Holman Way in Golden just off the Sixth Avenue and Indiana St. intersection. The summer club season generally runs from Mid-May to approximately the end of July, with practices held daily Monday through Friday and regular meets every Saturday with a few optional meets on Sundays or occasionally on weeknights if needed. We have come to recognize that the racing aspect of our team is not for everyone due to things such as Westernaire’s, vacation plans, age, and many other factors. We always leave the decision to compete in meets up to each individual family along with the level of commitment you choose to give the team!
