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.
Anyone interested in joining the team for the first time must try-out for proper placement within our aquatic programming. Basic skill requirements are provided below. Swimmers not yet ready for STARS will be encouraged to join Starfish pre-team program or our lessons program for further stroke development. Evaluations for new swimmers are available during our pre-season open evaluation period and are mandatory prior to registration. Please contact a coach at oakbrookstars [at] gmail.com to arrange an evaluation if you cannot attend the open evaluations.
Our team participates in local competitions in the Northern and Western suburbs. Participation in these meets is optional, but encouraged.
Fees: All fees must be paid in full before the first day of swim team practice. Swimmers that have not registered in advance will not be able to practice until registration fees have been paid. Full registration packets are available at the Family Aquatic Center and the Family Recreation Center registration desk. Team fees do not include a Family Aquatic Center membership. Swimmers are responsible for swimsuits and equipment costs. No refunds can be issued once the season begins. A discount of $25 may be deducted for each additional sibling from the same family that registers for STARS Swim Team*.
STARS Swim Team members may only swim during assigned practice times. Teammates that want to swim on their own outside of practice must either purchase a membership or pay the daily admission fee.
Please note: Parents are invited to stay during practice, but we kindly request that you watch from the observation deck. USA Swimming and insurance regulations allow only athletes and coaching staff to access the pool deck during practice.
