           OF THE...


The Norwalk Stingrays programs are very family-involved. The environment provided is conducive to a building and learning team. We strive for FUN and "giving it your best", knowing that your results are a reflection of just that.

  • We are semi-year round, practicing together in the spring and fall and competing as a team in the summertime.

  • We are a "building team" meaning we like to let the swimmers experience swimming for fun and help them decide if they want to take it more seriously as they build into their strokes.

  • We are very family-friendly, and family-involved.

  • We welcome you to our program and cannot wait to see what lies ahead for you and your swimmer!

  • We welcome ages 6-18 years of age to participate.

Started in Fall 2021...
