The Stingrays Too celebrate success
Warwickshire event is next for Crieff swimmers
Stingrays Too, the disability swim club based in Crieff, is celebrating another successful season.
Michael and Robert Murrell recently successfully competed at the SDS regional schools trials in Perth.
The medal haul for the Crieff club was further enhanced by a number of different swimmers competing at events around Scotland and England.
Over the summer, the club has had swimmers selected for the 2017 Special Olympics in Sheffield ( Michael Murrell and David Charleson), the 2017 Scottish Downs Syndrome swimming event in Dundee (Christopher Marshall, Christopher Pearson and David Charleson) and the Discovery Games, also in Dundee, where they were joined by Brogan Dodds, Aonghus Kidd and Robert Murrell.
Next up for the club is the British Downs Syndrome competition in Rugby, which will be attended by Christopher Marshall as part of a contingent of Downs Syndrome swimmers from all over Scotland. There are also high hopes that Michael and Robert Murrell will be selected for the Scottish schools competition later this year.
The club meets at the Strathearn Community Campus on Fridays between 5.30pm and 6.30pm and caters for swimmers of all capabilities, for instance many of the swimmers have only recently started to compete. The club welcomes swimmers with learning and physical disabilities and has a mix of competitive and recreational swimmers.
The club operates under the auspices of The Stingrays and swimmers can and do attend both, clubs, depending on ability and numbers.
Details of dates for the club can be obtained from Strathearn Community Campus and sessions restart after the October break.
