Sprint meet opens season with a splash

| 16/10/2014

(SSC): The Cayman National Fall Sprint Meet, hosted by the Stingray Swim Club (SSC) of Grand Cayman at the Lions Aquatic Centre takes place this Saturday, 18 October and will see swimmers from SSC, Camana Bay Aquatic Club and Team Treasure Island competing in a number of sprint distance events and relays. Cayman National – a long-time supporter of Stingray Swim Club is proud to once again sponsor the first sprint meet of the 2014-2015 competitive age group season. Shari Whittaker, Marketing Manager of Cayman National explains why this is a successful, long-standing partnership: “Cayman National has deep roots in our community, and Stingray – a not for profit swim club – works hard to keep swimming available to everyone in our community.

"Stingray’s partnerships with both the government Learn to Swim programme and with the Lions Club; plus the personal values and disciplines which swimming teaches our youth make them a community programme we are happy to be associated with and we wish all swimmers the best of luck on Saturday,” she added.

Stingray’s Head Coach Andy Copley is looking forward to the Sprint Meet. “We have been back in training for about two months now; have performed well  in the Cayman Islands Amateur Swimming Association’s last two sea swims and now we are ready to get back on the blocks and compete in the pool as well.”

“Cayman National is a wonderful supporter of swimming,” said SSC President Amanda Roberts. “The Cayman National Fall Sprint Meet is going to be fast and exciting and we invite everyone to come to the Lions Pool to support all our young swimmers.”

The next event on the Stingray Swim Club Calendar is the Mike Lockwood Memorial Pirates Week Meet, which offers a full array of events – sprint, middle and long distances.
