Stingrays Swim Team
The Stingrays Swim Team offers athletes with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to learn about swimming as a sport while having fun and making friends! The team practices together and competes with Special Olympics Washington.
We encourage sportsmanship as well as competition. Coaching includes the YMCA values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility while working on physical training and stroke techniques.
In 2024, participation in this program is fully-funded by state grants and is strongly by volunteers.
To participate on the Stingrays Swim Team an athlete must be: over 5 years old and able to make their way independently across the pool (swimming or walking).
