Stingrays competitive Swim Team

Swim Team at the J

The Tucson J Swim Team is a competitive swim team for children ages 4-18. We value hard work, the pursuit of excellence, and mutual respect for teammates and competitors. Through practice and competition, athletes develop a work ethic and healthy sense of competition that provides the backbone for success in the pool, the classroom, and beyond. We accept new swimmers all year!

As a program of the Tucson J, we share a vision of fostering a place of esteem and respect, as viewed by the broader community.

Tennis Masters is a clinic designed for advanced players to help them to compete at a higher level. The major goals are to develop a strong set of game fundamentals, including ball control, strategy and tactics, competitiveness, positive mindset, and concentration, in a positive environment. The clinic explores the foundations of both singles and doubles, through on-court instruction and match play coaching.

The new tryout policy is as follows:

New swimmers will be placed in the appropriate practice group based on their ability and age. Evaluations for existing swimmers (advancing to a higher group or placement into a lower group) are made by the coaching staff throughout the season. Placement is decided by the coaches who may use their discretion in deciding the best learning environment for each individual swimmer. Recommendations will be communicated to the swimmer and parent.

All prospective athletes are required to try out prior to joining the Stingrays Swim Team. Open tryouts will be held each month, with dates and times to be posted on the Stingrays website. During open tryouts, athletes may be asked to demonstrate the prerequisites for the practice group the coach thinks may be the best fit after a short consultation with the athlete and/or their parents or guardians. Although the tryouts are open, advanced scheduling with the Head Coach is recommended.

Returning athletes who have been out of the water for more than one month are also required to complete a tryout to determine appropriate group placement. While placement with the athlete’s previous group is preferred, it is not guaranteed.

Upon completion of any tryout with an assistant coach, the Assistant Coach will confer with the Head Coach. The Head Coach will respond to the parent of the prospective parent within two business days and recommend the appropriate placement.

Upon completion of any tryout with the Head Coach, the Head Coach will recommend the appropriate placement to the parent of the prospective athlete.
