STARS Swim Team

Be your very best! Become a STAR!

STARS is a competitive recreational swim team that is open to swimmers ages 6-18. This team is committed to supporting swimmers at every level. Whether you’re developing the proper mechanics of competitive strokes or looking to advanced stroke refinement and improve endurance, you will experience quality training in an environment that is based on sportsmanship, responsibility, discipline, and confidence. Our goal is to encourage a love of swimming while developing swimmers into the very best competitors they can be. This is an inclusive recreational program that encourages growth based on personal goals and abilities.

The Park District continues to operate our programming as permitted within the IDPH and CDC guidelines. The STARS Swim Team also considers guidance from USA Swimming. Practices will be structured to accommodate social distancing within the pool. Masks continue to be required anytime swimmers are not in the water, or immediately returning to the water. Each group will meet on a regular schedule as follows:
