Devil Rays Swim Team
Our team philosophy is unique in many ways. Like many programs we stress gradual increase in work load over the swimmer's career. In the early ages stress is put on technical improvement, overall physical development and FUN. As the swimmers age we encourage them to increase the frequency and duration of their practices and to commit to longer periods of uninterrupted training. These swimmers will eventually be successful if they learn the value of hard work, delayed gratification, and the ability to push themselves out of the comfort zone.
In order to enroll in the Devil Rays Prep Team, you must first schedule an evaluation through the Lenny Krayzelburg Swim Academy. Swimmers must evaluate at Gliders level to participate in Devil Rays.
