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!
- Junior Rays pre-swim team (youth ages 5+)
- Stingrays USA Swimming team (youth ages 6-18)
- Stingrays US Masters team (adults 18+)
The Bronze (intro level) group is currently full. Contact us to be put on the waitlist! Our Silver group has limited space available.
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). Drop-in tryouts are scheduled each fall, but you can also join the team at any time during the season. For a tryout, contact Head Coach Jennie Condon at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
The Junior Rays group and waitlist are full. We do not expect to have space for any more new swimmers until Fall 2022.
Start the transition from lessons to competition for those interested in pursuing swimming as a sport. Focus on technique and learn all four competitive strokes in a team environment. Compete in on-site time trials. Prerequisites: Must be able to confidently swim 25 yards (one length) each of freestyle and backstroke, and take direction in a group of 10 - 12 swimmers from a coach who is usually on-deck.
To check availability or schedule a tryout, contact Head Coach Jennie Condon at email@example.com.
Join us for a coached US Masters Swimming group that combines all the best parts of fitness swimming, stroke work, and competition skills practice. Add great camaraderie and caring, experienced coaches and you have a recipe for success whether your goal is getting in shape, learning a new stroke, or competing in USMS meets. Swimmers of all levels and backgrounds are welcome! Stingrays Masters are coached primarily by long-time MJCC swimmer and ASCA Level 4 coach, Laurie Kilbourn.
To check availability, register, or schedule a time to come check out the team, contact Head Coach Jennie Condon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stingrays Masters practice 12:15-1:15 pm, Tuesdays and Thursdays
