Stingrays Preparing for Championships

Written by: The Cowra Phoenix


Swimmers at the Cowra Stingrays Amateur Swim Club are preparing for three weeks of local championship rounds, with next week being their final week of the 2021/21 regular local season. According to Stingrays Head Coach, Pat Charnock, it has been a great regular season, with the club’s swimmers improving on their swimming skills and heading into the championships fully prepared.

There are no qualifying times for competitors to qualify for the championships, however, they need to complete at least six 50 metre races in their chosen stroke or strokes.

“The kids have trained hard all season, working to achieve personal best times, and working on their strokes, and working towards qualifying for the championships,” Mr Charnock said. The regular swim season ends next Tuesday, February 16, and the championship rounds will then commence for three weeks, ending on March 9.

Mr Charnock said the Beginner Squad, which was re-introduced to the club last season, had been instrumental in giving new swimmers the skills they needed to transition into the Junior Squad.

“The Beginner Squad was re-introduced last year, and has been very successful in improving the skills of our swimmers, allowing them to transition into the Junior Squad,” he said.

The Championship rounds will be adjudicated by a fully accred-ited referee, giving the swimmers the opportunity to progress to further levels of swimming competition,. including the regional and state levels.
