ABOUT THE MANTA RAYS

Team Goals

 

The NUMBER 1 GOAL of the Running Man Manta Ray swim team is to HAVE FUN!  Additional benefits include (and are not limited to):

  • Great friendships

  • Learning stroke techniques and proper diving skills

  • Endurance

  • Late night swim parties

  • Experiencing team spirit

  • Qualifying for city meet times and participating in the GPSA city meet

 

The Running Man Manta Rays have been around since 2000. Our swimmers range from novice to experienced year-round swimmers. If you live in Running Man, we hope you will join us. If not, please come out and cheer on our swimmers and enjoy the outdoors! If you have any questions about joining the team, please feel free to contact us. Also, take a look at our picture gallery to see some familiar faces.

The opportunity to choose your volunteer jobs and the dates you perform them will be offered through Sign-Up Genius after registration.
