Dear Northstar Families:
Get ready for an exciting summer with Northstars! The swim season begins on June 7 and ends with Champs on August 14 . The intrasquad meets are tentatively scheduled on June 19, June 26, July 10, and July 24. We are very pleased that Coach Kyle will be returning back as our head Coach!
Registration begins on 4/1 for Park Paseo residents and on 4/15 for nonresidents . Grandkids of Park Paseo residents are considered residents and are welcome to join the team. You can complete your registration for the 2021 swim season by just clicking “ Register Now ” on the home page. As this season is a little different from our normal season, we are still planning our meets and the related volunteer jobs. As soon as our meets and jobs are posted on the website, you can sign up for volunteer jobs in the order in which you have signed up for registration. The families who register first will have the first chance of picking up the volunteer jobs.
This year, you have the convenience to pay registration dues online using a credit card with a nominal fee of 2.95% plus $0.30 per transaction. In this case, there is no need for a volunteer deposit check as the credit card will be on file. You also have the option to pay using checks During registration, you also have the option to buy Northstars swim caps (Latex for $5 and Silicon for $15). Swim caps will be distributed at the start of swim season.
All new swimmers and returning swimmers who skipped Northstars season in 2019 are required to provide proof of residence and swimmer’s proof of age. A single document for both proofs of residence and proof of age is the IUSD Aeries/Parent Portal Student Info Page . Visit New Swimmers Verification Documents to find the other acceptable documents.
Swimmers ages 15-18 can be Volunteer Coaches and 13-14 year-olds can serve as Team Captains. Both programs provide leadership development, swim coach training and experience, and community service hours that can be reported to their high schools. Your teenagers can still sign up for these positions by email ( [email protected] ).
Safety is our first priority and the team will be adopting all recommendations developed by the Irvine Swim League (ISL) to ensure compliance with city/state requirements. This includes the use of masks, distancing, and temperature checks.
Contact Menaka at [email protected] or any other board member for your questions regarding the swim team.
Get ready for another great swim season and see you all at the pool!
GO NORTHSTARS !!
