The HUB Marion Manta Rays hope to give a fun and family-oriented atmosphere while providing rigorous and comprehensive practices that expand our swimmer’s skills. Join us in competing against some of the top USA swimming programs around the Midwest as we make a name for Marion as one of the premier swimming teams in southern Illinois. Your swimmer will have the opportunity to build and grow into one of the area’s top competitors as a member of the Manta Ray family. We are dedicated to shaping well-rounded, confident and diligent swimmers. This is where excellence is taught, practiced and honed.
