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.
At this time, IDPH and Restore Illinois Phase 4 regulations are preventing us from running the swim team in its traditional manner. We are, however, excited to offer a series of competitive swimming stroke clinics. These 3-week clinics will primarily focus on techniques to improve power and efficiency in all of the competitive strokes. There will be some conditioning work, but the focus will primarily be on technique.
Each session of the stroke clinic will allow for 3 groups and up to 18 swimmers per group. We will have 3 swimmers per lane so that when stopped for coaching, we will have a swimmer at the near wall, a swimmer in the middle of the pool, and the final swimmer at the far wall to accommodate social distancing within the pool. Each group will meet on a regular schedule as follows:
