Stingrays Swim Teams

We have something for everyone ages 5 to 105 (or older!) in our swim team program. Find your swim team home at the J!

MJCC Stingrays
(USA Swimming team, ages 6-18)

The Stingrays Swim Team is a fun and challenging way to keep active and build confidence. Swimmers at all levels will work on technique and stamina, goal setting and lifetime fitness habits. As part of USA Swimming, the team will participate in regular meets in the Portland Metro area and swimmers at all levels have the opportunity to compete with swimmers of their own age and ability.

Our swim team tryout consists of swimming 100 yards (four lengths) each of freestyle, backstroke, and breaststroke (Silver - our second level - swimmers also need to know some butterfly). Tryouts are scheduled quarterly. Contact Head Coach Jennie Condon at jcondon@oregonjcc.org with any questions.

Practice for the 2022-2023 season begins October 10th for returning swimmers and October 11th for new swimmers.

Interested in trying out for Fall 2022?  Tryouts are on September 29th.  Returning swimmers DO NOT need to try out again.

Please do your best to sign up for the group (Stingrays or Junior Rays) you think will be right for your swimmer.

Sign-up is required this year; no drop-in swimmers will be accepted.  If all tryout slots are full, that means we will not have room for your swimmer this season.  We will start our waitlist for the winter quarter in October.
