Club Nights

Stingrays menu, Donna serving
Stingrays has a long tradition of Friday Club Nights, where swimmers get to put into practice the skills they have learned at squad training. Our Friday Club Night program is organised by Stingrays Committee Members, with additional help on the night by club family volunteers.

Swimmers have the opportunity to swim in (18m), 25m, 50m, 100m and 200m events in all four strokes according to ability. The program of races changes each week and the program of events is provided to all members at the start of the season and swimmers are required to nominate in advance each week.

Piggy-Back races for the 7-and-unders
On Friday nights, the Stingrays Canteen has delicious meals and snacks available at reasonable prices and we hold weekly raffles, with all proceeds going directly back to the club. All nominated swimmers must be accompanied by an adult and parent involvement at Club Nights is absolutely essential.

Volunteer timekeepers, marshals, recorders and kitchen helpers are greatly appreciated and training is provided. The family kitchen roster and the weekly menu are published on the club Noticeboard so please check it regularly for notices and events.
Please remember that committee members, officials, and Friday Night helpers are all volunteers - we do this for our children and yours so please offer to help where you can. Parent jobs are outlined below - please do not hesitate to ask a committee member for more information.

When: Friday Nights, October to March (school terms). Once monthly during winter
Where: Woree Sports & Aquatic Centre 
Time: Gates open at 6:00pm, with racing from 6:30pm until 8:00pm (approx.). Earlier start in winter
Cost: $5.00 per club family per week

Nominating each week

To nominate, a ‘tick-sheet’ is located on the club Notice Board where swimmers tick the events they wish to swim in. 

Nominations can also be emailed directly to Alice at race-sec@cairnsstingrays.com.au
Both tick-sheet and email nominations close at 5.00 pm each Thursday evening. We would appreciate that this procedure is adhered to, as changing the programme at late notice can cause delays and complications.

End-of-Season Break-Up

Our end of season breakup and awards presentation was combined with our May day long-weekend annual Club Camp held at Barrabadeen on lake Tinaroo. This was the second year we held this event which has proved to be very successful; usually exclusively booked by the club, offers camping or dormitory options, the chance for watersports and an organised 'mini triathlon', as well as a night bushwalk. The club and its members contribute an amazing selection of fantastic dishes for our evening BBQs.
