Park Paseo HOA Regulations

The Park Paseo HOA will only allow families who are in good standing and current with their HOA dues to participate. The HOA will verify that all families’ payments are up to date and eligible.

For non-residents, the HOA office will be vetting all non-residents to ensure they are in good standing with our Park Paseo HOA. You must designate a sponsor who resides in Park Paseo who will allow you access to the pool for practices, as you will not be receiving a key to the pool. Each Park Paseo resident can only sponsor one family.

Per HOA regulations, priority registration will be given to Park Paseo residents through April 30th.

Volunteering

Our swim meets and team would not be such a success if it were not for the full participation of our great parents. Volunteering is a REQUIREMENT in order to participate in the swim practices, dual meets, social events, Championship meet and the end-of-year party. To encourage fairness and complete participation,   a $50 check deposit will be collected from each family. If you miss a shift, your check will be deposited. Your swimmer will not be allowed to return to practice, meets, or other team events until you have provided another $50 deposit check. The second check will only be deposited if you miss a second shift. Your swimmers will not be registered until this check is received. All checks will be destroyed after the end of the season. 

Important Dates

See the Events Page for details on the following mandatory meetings and dates.

  • Registration deadlines : 
    • Early registration from March 11th to April 8th for Park Paseo residents and March 25th to April 8th for non-residents.

  • Job Sign-up & Team suit ordering. Sign up for the required volunteer positions and order your team suit if you haven’t already.

Refunds

Please see the following deadlines for our refund policy. Though we understand that withdrawing from the team sometimes is the only option, refunds do take time and resources from our volunteer based, non-profit organization.

  • Deadline to withdraw from the team with a full refund is April 30th.
  • 50% refund after April 30th.
  • No refunds after May 15th.

Practices and Meets

Our practices will begin on May 28, 2019 and will be held Monday through Thursday. See the Practices page for more details about practices, and the Meets page for details about swim meet competitions, typically held on Saturday mornings.

Volunteer Swim Coaches

The Northstars Swim Team has volunteer opportunities for teen swimmers to help as swim coaches. We are looking for dedicated, reliable, and motivated teen swimmers ages 15 – 18 to help our coaches during practices. Volunteers in this position can earn community service hours reported to their high schools. Volunteer swim coaches are expected to pay the registration fee and their parents will be required to perform volunteer jobs. Being a volunteer swim coach is a great way to serve as a role model for younger swimmers, demonstrate leadership in an organization, and may lead to paid job opportunities in the summers that follow.

Publication Release

Your child may be photographed and or filmed while on the swim team as part of our effort to capture all the memories throughout the season. These pictures and videos may be used for a variety of publications, including, but not limited to, the team’s website, the Irvine Swim League website, Irvine Swim League Facebook and Twitter pages and publication in the Orange County Register/Irvine World News.

If your child’s photo is selected for publication in the Orange County Register/Irvine World News, your child’s full name and team will be published with their photo. If you would like for your child not to be included, please notify us during the registration process.

Fun Swim

During the meet’s half-time break there will be a “race” for swimmers who are not on the swim team, like younger siblings or adult relay teams.

Thank you and we look forward to a great season with you! Please contact us at ppnorthstars@gmail.com with any additional questions you have.
