MISSION STATEMENT

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!

Rebecca LiBassi

Head Coach

rlibass@bgsu.edu

Becca started swimming in elementary school on Parma’s summer swim team before moving to a club team. Throughout high school, Becca volunteered as a coach for the beginner swimmers on her team. After high school, Becca went to BGSU attaining a degree in Special Education. During her first two years in college, Becca swam on the club team. Starting in high school, Becca taught swim lessons to children and adults. Becca lives in Norwalk where she is also an Intervention Specialist.

 

From the Coordinator

When Becca joined us as an assistant coach, the swimmers really enjoyed her. She is able to command the swimmers while still keeping it fun and wanting them to come back. While having Coach Erin step back, we are so excited to have Becca take over as Head Coach. 

Sela Berry

Assistant Coach

scberry6@gmail.com

From the Coordinator:

Sela joins our coaching staff with years of experience on both our stingray team and her high school swim team. She is very eager to coach and looks forward to providing the swimmers with her experience and feedback during practices. 

Carissa Link

Assistant Coach

immisscariss@gmail.com

From the Coordinator:

Carissa officially joins the team as an assistant coach and will help out where needed. With her experience on both our team and a High School Districts swimmer, Carissa is an asset to our staff and team.

Erin Cannon

Intermittent Coach

erinsmetzer@gmail.com

Erin started competitively swimming at the age of 8. After countless years of summer swim team and Norwalk High School swim team, she taught swim lessons for four years and began coaching for the Norwalk Park and Rec Summer swim team (before it was called Norwalk Stingrays) for three years. She then attended Miami University and achieved her bachelor of science degree in Early Childhood Education with a minor in Special Education. After moving back to Norwalk, she opened a child care center, Junior Explorers, in 2010. She started as the assistant coach for Norwalk High School swim team in 2011, moving to head coach in 2013. 

 

From the Coordinator

Erin is a wonderful asset to our team and we are so grateful to have her and her experience. Because of the demands of Coach Erin's expanding business, it's best that she step back at this time. But this is certainly not goodbye; she will be around to help with practices as needed and she will likely help in the summertime!
