WE ARE THE CCSRC STINGRAYS!
We are the Cedar Creek Swim & Racquet Club Stingrays, a neighborhood summer swim team established in 1974 in the Gwinnett County Swim League (GCSL), based in the Cedar Creek subdivision in Lilburn, Georgia. Under the tutelage of Coach David Reason since 1995, we are a proud member of the highly competitive South Central Division and placed 17th at the 2022 GCSL Championships. Our regular, fast-paced season runs May to July and consists of traditional morning, sometimes optional evening and Saturday morning practices. We compete in approximately six dual meets on Thursdays or Mondays beginning at 6pm. We host three home meets in a 25-yard pool with four competition lanes and our away meets are typically within ten miles of our clubhouse located at 853 Angevine Court.
Swimmers vary in skill and range in age from four years old to high school seniors. We do not host a preseason tryout. The only requirement needed to join our team is that a swimmer must be four years old by June 1st. Our coaches are all former Stingrays that have come through our program and they patiently teach correct technique in the four strokes. They build skills such as stroke development, dives, turns, improved endurance and heavily emphasize the value of the team appropriate for each swimmer's age and ability.
Summer league swimming is a "family" sport and parents are an integral part of our success. It is the expectation that our families give of their time and serve in a role at every home meet and most away meets in which their swimmer participates. The entire League is served completely by volunteers and the Stingrays are dependent upon everyone doing their part.
Our colors are royal purple, black and gray and competition gear may be purchased through our Team Store. Although we have a long standing post season tradition as a consistent Top 10 team finisher at the GCSL Championship at Georgia Tech in July, we recognize that swimming is a life skill and no prior swimming experience is necessary to join our team. Registration for our upcoming season begins in March.

Past, present or future Stingrays, we'd love to hear from you!
CCSRC BOARD, TEAM COUNCIL & COORDINATORS
The Cedar Creek Swim & Racquet Club Board and the Stingrays Swim Council focuses all year on building a summer program based on team unity, character development and family support directly tied to our community.
Cedar Creek Swim Team's main purpose is to give children an opportunity to participate in organized swimming. The primary emphasis is in individual improvement and achievement. Sportsmanship is emphasized for all participants, children, and adults.
We work to ensure that every child gains the life skill of swimming, has the opportunity to compete at their highest level and we are committed to providing healthy competition in an encouraging environment.
Our number one priority is creating engagement because we know that if kids stick with it, sports help develop grit, resiliency, integrity, empathy, respect and other non-tangibles that piggyback success. When young swimmers work through our process and embrace the struggle to overcome a dive, a flip turn or any new skill that moves them forward, that feeling of accomplishment and confidence is intoxicating. And, athletes learn to want more of that.
"These kids are not robots, who simply need programming and technical practice. They are human beings. They are individuals who do not so easily conform to a one size fits all road map. They do not develop in a linear fashion. They need interest, motivation, persistence and enjoyment. We can never, ever forget that within each stage of long term athletic development, we must focus every day on short term athlete engagement." - Dr. Jean Cote for Change the Game Project
