It is a fun, fast paced meet designed specifically to provide younger swimmers with a stress free, competitive environment where they can just get used to diving off the blocks; and the older swimmers with a fun meet, where they can enjoy the comraderie of swimming and of competing before the third cycle of the training season kicks off in earnest.  “Swimmers who want to take part in the Duel in the Pool need only indicate that they will be taking part,” said Stingray Swim Club’s Head Coach Andy Copley.

He added, “We will divide all the swimmers, being careful to keep the teams balanced by the Ernst & Young colours, on either Team Yellow or Team Grey; and swimmers will be assigned to events and relay teams as well.”

Longstanding corporate citizens of the Cayman Islands, Ernst & Young Ltd.’s Managing Partner, Dan Scott was delighted to once again support swimming in the Cayman Islands. “On behalf of Ernst & Young Ltd. I am proud to add our congratulations to the CARIFTA Swimming Team which just returned home from Cayman. The CARIFTA Swimmers are fine examples of what hard work and determination can do; but, even as we look forward to their continued success it is imperative that we continue to invest in those coming behind them as this is how we will build a strong legacy for Cayman swimming. This Meet is designed to do just that, to enourage younger swimmers. To give them experience on the blocks with a starter in a fun and nurturing environment. Best of luck to swimmers in Teams Yellow and Team Grey … you will all be winners.”

President Brenda McGrath added, “The Duel in the Pool is going to be a lot of fun,” she said, “Meets such as this are great for team building, and for exposing our youngest swimmers to competition in a non-competitive environment. We are going to have a potluck social afterward where we will celebrate the success of our CARIFTA Team, and particularly of the SSC members who were on the team, and we really hope that even if you are not going to swim that if you are interested in learning more about Stingray Swim Club, and seeing what weare all about, that you drop in to the Lions Pool and join us.”

The Meet starts at 5:30pm. All swimmers are invited to take part, and if you are not a member of a club or swim school with a Coach who can contact SSC then you can email
