Gold River, CA (MPG) - In this past season, the Gold River Stingrays dove into the water in early spring and climbed out onto dryland in late summer – as unprecedented League victors! In addition to their iconic “We Believe” cheer, it was the season for them to adopt a second credo: “Heart & Soul to Reach Our Goal.” And each of their believing and spirited swimmers obviously took it to heart. Gold River has the fewest number of athletes in its top-tiered Comstock Division. Competing against teams two to three times larger, in last season’s Championships Meet, the fun-loving and hard-working Stingrays captured First Place! Here’s the triumphant team gathered around its well-deserved Golden Goal.    

For those athletes who meet rigid time standards, their season’s crescendo is the Nor Cal Swim League Meet of Champs. Out of a field of 53 teams, with “Heart & Soul to Reach Our Goal,” Gold River nabbed Second Place! Every swimmer is credited with significant individual and team contributions. Incredibly, both Jason Feldkamp and Brady Calkins slammed first to the wall and broke League records in all of their races. It was a season for the record books, and for several successful Stingrays to then join teams competing in 50-meter vs. 25-yard pools.  

Now it is time for Gold River to reunite resident teammates and welcome first-timers to the Stingrays Family. Last season’s momentum is still flowing; this season’s excitement is growing. To accommodate both the returning swimmers and the new, early online registration has already opened. Go ahead and take a sneak peek at their Website: [Note the action-packed swimming events and laid-back social events!] While the website is filled with important information, anyone with questions may contact Coach Jeff at 916.638.7001 x30 or

With renewed “Heart & Soul to Reach Our Goal,” it is time now to plan ahead for the Stingrays’ inaugural function, a Parents’ Meet and Greet. Those of you interested in team participation are invited to come mix and mingle with the awesome coaching staff, knowledgeable board members and experienced parents, all of whom are eager to answer your inquiries and share their knowledge. Mark your calendars for February 8, 7:00 pm pm until 8:30 pm, at Fort Rock Brewing.

March Clinics are on the horizon, and then the Stingrays launch off the starting blocks into what should be quite the season. “We Believe” in Gold River!
