Cayman National Bank Sprint Meet

bigsandlittlesStingray Swim Club’s domestic, short course season, started with a splash when swimmers stepped up on the blocks for the long distance Friday Night Lights and the fast and furious Cayman National Fall Sprint Meet.
Cayman National — a committed supporter of Cayman’s youth and of swimming in the Cayman Islands — was proud to see how Stingray is using their swim meet to develop its swimmers. “It is always a delight to see new swimmers — some of them as young as six years old — enjoying the sport and developing their skills.  In addition they also receive the time and attention of the club’s older swimmers; and they are encouraged to compete, even when they are uncertain. The guidance and tips they receive from the older swimmers whom they look up to presents a win-win situation for all,” said Shari Welcome, Marketing Manager of Cayman National.
Stingray’s Head Coach, David Pursley added, “It is important that our older swimmers take time to give back. Our “big” swimmers learn to mentor, to listen and to provide their young charge with support, encouragement and direction; while our “little” swimmers learn how to navigate a competitive swim meet, create bonds with older swimmers who can help and encourage them; and  have a fun, exciting, competitive swim experience.”
And, while the swim meets saw many swimmers “warming up for the season ahead,” one young swimmer — Corey Frederick-Westerborg — made his intentions to swim fast all season very clear with four new records:
