Welcome to Steiner Stars!
The Steiner Stars organization has been developing swimmers in the Steiner Ranch Community for over 20 years. Every summer season over 400 kids train hard and compete in dual meets against other local summer clubs as part of the Northwest Swim Circuit. Our wonderful coaches have been responsible for the development of thousands of swimmers over the years. Some of these kids go on to swim at club teams and even in to the college ranks, but the majority of our swimmers love to compete and enjoy the relaxed and fun nature of the summer swim season.
The Stars actually consist of two teams, Red and Blue. While originally one club the two teams became necessary very quickly due to the local demand! There is no difference between the teams other than the practice schedule. Kids from the age of 5 to 17 practice daily at the Bella Mar pool from roughly May 1st through early July. While school is still in session the teams alternate afternoon practice daily. Once school is out the Red team practices in the morning and the Blue team in the afternoon. Please visit each specific team site for the exact schedule. We typically have six dual meets (on Saturday mornings) every season plus a Divisional championship and Invitational meet for those swimmers who qualify.
The Stars are a completely volunteer run organization through the generosity of so many of our swimmer parents. It is an amazing organization that has not only helped teach the lifelong skill of swimming to so many, but has also created so many friendships throughout our fantastic neighborhood.
2023 will be our 22nd season with the Northwest Swim Circuit. The only requirement to join is swimmers must be able to swim the length of the 25 yard pool by the 1st meet. Mandatory new swimmer evaluation will be held April 23rd from 1-3pm at the Bella Mar pool. The season runs from May 1st through July 9th.
Returning family registration opens March 6th. New family registration will be April 1st at 7am. Check the website at 6am on April 1st for registration location. All details will be announced on the Stars Webpage: www.steinerstars.org. New family orientation will be held April 23rd from 4-6 pm.
Residents must be in good standing with the HOA to register and agree to volunteer requirements to participate in the league. Space in each age group is limited. Swimmers must be 5 years or older by May 1, 2023 to participate. Be sure to check out our video to get a glimpse of what awaits you! GO STARS!!!
New Swimmer Evaluations
If you are a returning family with a new swimmer or are new to the program all together your kiddos will need to complete a new swimmer evaluation. Our evaluation is completed by doing the following:
- Swimmer must swim from one end of a 25 yard competition pool (like the one at Bella Mar) to the other
- They can’t be holding on the lane line or wall
- There shouldn’t be anybody in the water with them
This can be accomplished in one of three ways:
- Join us at the Bella Mar pool on 4/23 from 1-3pm to complete an evaluation with our coaches
- If your child is on a club team and you feel meets these standards, please have their club coach submit an email to [email protected]
- Submit a video of your child completing this task to https://www.dropbox.com/request/guJGq5GdHN8PO5p8Ca... Please be sure the video is large enough to be able to see the swimmer clearly
This evaluation does not guarantee a spot on the team and registration is still required. However, without an approved evaluation a swimmer will not be able to be registered. Thank you and, GO STARS!
