The MorningView Manta Rays swim out of the MorningView neighborhood in
Our season runs from mid-May through early-July, with County Championships in mid-July. The MV Swim Team is made up of swimmers between the ages of 4-18 years old. Younger beginning swimmers from ages 4 to 6, who are unable to swim the length of the pool, are encouraged to join our Mini-Manta Ray Team. The Mini-Mantas was formed in 2005 for children who are not yet able to swim the full length of the pool unassisted. This is a requirement to swim on the main team. The Minis enjoy the benefits of their own practices and dedicated coaches in the smaller children's pool at MV, as well as Mini Meets, prior to our home swim meets. Some of the Minis graduate to the “big team and the big pool” by the end of the last swim meet. We are glad to offer the Mini-Manta program again in 2018.
In addition to being able to swim the length of the main pool, swimmers must be capable of receiving group instruction. The Manta Ray’s swim team is not intended to replace swim lessons, although your swimmer will learn about the competitive strokes and improve their endurance. Practice runs after school during the last two weeks of May and in the mornings once school is out. Please visit our Schedules page to see what our summer schedule typically looks like. Several of the coaches run one-on-one private lessons on their own time. This is a good way to help some of the younger swimmers improve faster, and to fine tune stroke technique for the older swimmers.
We do accept swimmers from outside of the MorningView neighborhood. While there is an out of neighborhood fee associated with joining our team, we welcome and encourage local swimmers that don't live in MorningView. Please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
