The Stingray Experience ~

The Ivy Hills Stingrays participate in the Greater Cincinnati Private Country Club League, and consist of swimmers of all skill levels from ages 5-18 years old. The “Stingrays Experience” focuses on swimming development in a fun and social environment.  Our coaching staff works very hard to develop the swimming skills for everyone from beginners just learning to swim, to our older and more advanced competitive swimmers.

Coaches ~

One of the key contributors to a solid and successful swim team is consistency in coaching and teaching swimmer development throughout the years. The Ivy Hills Stingrays have had this consistent, high-quality coaching with the same Head Coach since 2010.  Although our Assistant Coaches do change with more frequency, you will find that all four coaches work extremely well with children of all ages, while promoting a healthy, fun, and respectful environment for learning!
