Modified Summer 2020 Season

Open for Returning Members

6/15/20 - 7/3/20

Open for New Members

6/15/20 - 6/22/20


After being displaced from swim team due to COVID-19, STAR is excited to announce an opportunity to return to swim training this Summer for the Norse, Purple, and PreSenior/Senior practice groups. The modified season will begin Monday, June 22 and end on Thursday, August 13.

As swimming at SHS (or similar indoor venues) is still not a reality for STAR, we will be holding socially-distanced open water swim practices and dryland workout options each week. Open water swim practice (45 minutes, regardless of group) will be help one time per week at Lake Ripley in Cambridge. Dryland workouts will be held twice weekly in Stoughton, at Schefelker Park.Notifications of cancellations due to inclement weather and any changes to dryland location will be made via email and on STAR's Facebook page.

Because life is not running as usual these days, STAR will be offering some choices regarding participation this Summer. First, families can choose to participate in open swim only, dryland only, or both. And second, families can choose a 4-week option (through July 16), a 6-week option (through July 30), or an 8-week option (through August 13).

Please read and the Ripley Ripley COVID-19 statement at Required gear for open water practices: Water bottle, goggles, towels, and high-visibility STAR cap (see below for information about purchasing the cap). Required gear for dryland workouts: Water bottle, towel, yoga mat or towel for the ground, athletic clothes and althletic shoes. Swimmers MUST arrive at and exit the park in their suits, as changing facilities will not be open.

Practice Schedule:
Norse/Puple: Mondays, 5:30-6:15 pm
PS/Senior: Wednesdays, 5:30-6:15 pm
Dryland (all practice groups): Tuesdays & Thursdays, 5:00-5:45 pm
