The Surreywood Stringrays are gearing up for another great swim season.
Welcome new head coach Tim Soukup and assistant coach Samuel Taylor.
The Surreywood Stingrays are gearing up for another great season!
First practice is Monday, May 21, 2018.
Samuel Taylor will be returning to coach the Stingrays this summer, and joining him this year is head coach Tim Soukup. Tim brings with him his experience as a long time swimmer and as assistant coach for his water polo team. Both coaches are unmatched in their enthusiasm for the sport of swimming and the Surreywood Stingrays as a team. Our coaches have a desire to grow the team both in numbers and in skill.
As we welcome a new head coach, we say goodbye and thank you to longtime Stingrays coach, Sarah Denison, as she pursues other opportunities related to her actual career. She will be taking a graduate course at NYU this summer and we wish her all the best.
This year, registration will be completely online. Starting around May 1, you’ll be able to register your swimmer at http://surreywood.org/swim-
Make sure you have joined the pool before you register your swimmer!
All are welcome to join us on Saturday, May 19 at 9am for a meet and greet with our coaches. Light refreshments will be served. This will be a chance for us to get to know Coach Tim and Coach Sam a little better and talk about the upcoming season. We’d also love for you to invite friends and neighbors who might be interested in learning more about the team.
Your 2018 Swim Team Coaches:
Tim Soukup has grown up in Surreywood and has been swimming with the Surreywood Stingrays since he was a mini-mite. This year, he joins the team as head coach. Tim will graduate from the International Baccalaureate program at Midlothian High School this spring. After high school, Tim has plans to join the Navy. Until then, he is excited to coach and looks forward to getting back in the water May 21st!
Samuel Taylor is a student at Lloyd C Bird High School in The Governor’s Academy for Engineering. Samuel has been swimming for Surreywood since age 6, and it was on the Surreywood Stingrays Swim Team that he found his love for swimming. After 3 years on Surreywood he started swimming year-round where he would achieve many of his goals and receive many awards. He has always loved the children on the swim team, and this influenced him to begin his coaching career in 2016.
