Stringray Swim Club’s Kathy Jackson said “there’s a lot of new swimmers who joined the club’s this year. So we have a lot of little kids. Stingray’s pairs up our seniors with our bronze swimmers for this sprint meet specifically. The seniors’ job is to make sure they don’t miss their races, teach them how to read a heat sheet, and just get them comfortable with the whole meet process so they can become more independent.”
