2017 Welcome Letter
To All Stonecrest Families,
The summer swim season is still a few months away but planning has been in full swing for some time. There have been many changes in the league this year as well as within the Stonecrest Stingrays.
Frist of all, by way of introduction, my wife and I are the new swim team coordinators for Stonecrest. Between the two of us, we have 40+ years of experience in swimming, coaching, and swim team administration. One of the changes we will be implementing is the expansion of the Lil' Rays program and to include swimmers that have not yet achieved their black band. We are adamant that a great team starts young. Details of this change will come soon, but for now spread the word and get some younger, less experienced swimmers to join the team. Of course we are interested in new swimmers at any level.
Next – our coaching staff. We thank Reik Faust for his years of being our head coach, but he will not be returning to us this summer. We wish him all the best in his future endeavors! That being said, I can say that we will have an all-star coaching staff of familiar and possibly a new face or two. We are still finalizing the staff, but we expect to have everyone in place soon. Once complete, we’ll make the official announcements.
Lastly, the league, has also undergone some significant changes. As many of you recall we merged with another league so the schedule is a little different than past years. The name of the league did not change, ABE Suburban Swim League. Attached is the 2017 meet schedule. Please note the change in the structure of swim/dive champs, which we are hosting!!
Sign-ups, practice schedules, and all other swim team info will be forthcoming at a later date is not yet ready at this time. If you are getting this email/letter, you can assume that you will hear about those details when ready. If you are getting this email/letter second hand, I would advise that you send us an email letting us know.
That’s it for now! Have a great Spring and looking forward to seeing everyone at the pool on opening day!
Cristian & Carlye Rojas
