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 local club teams and even into 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 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 many lifelong friendships throughout our fantastic neighborhood.

Are you interested?? Please check back early in the year for registration details. We hope you come join the fun!!

2022 New Team Suits

Team, we're in a bit of a jam with suits.

The supply chain issues that have plagued the market has also affected swimsuit availability. This season we selected the TYR Nebulous for both the Red and Blue teams, but all sources are reporting limited availability in certain sizes.

As an alternative, the TYR Cadence suits in red or blue are acceptable.

We STRONGLY encourage everyone to purchase the new suit so everyone looks fantastic at that first meet!

While D&J sports is always a good resource for swim gear and we encourage you to support their local shop for fins, goggles, or extra gear, they were not able to support our suit needs this year. We now have a Stars Team Store with SwimOutlet.

Links to team suits at SwimOutlet Team Store: Please select the Nebulous suit if available or Cadence suit if Nebulous is out of stock:

Team Suits at Stars SwimOutlet Team Store

If neither of the above suits are available for your swimmer through SwimOutlet, we encourage you to try Amazon.com for the same suit.

Our emphasis is on building strong swimmers and having fun doing it. Please go to www.steinerstars.org to get more info about the team and how to register. Be sure to check out our video to get a glimpse of what awaits you!

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, 2022, to participate. Returning Family Registration will begin online starting Saturday, March 5th. New Family Registration will be online April 9th.
