Stars Program

ASC is proud to sponsor our Stars Program for our Red Hots and Green groups! This program is designed to outline concrete goals for each of our groups so that swimmers can work toward meeting these challenges in keeping with the club’s philosophies. A swimmer earns a star pin each time they accomplish a step/goal designated for their practice group. Steps that consist of a practice set must be set up by the coach; the coaching staff will determine when a swimmer has met each step. Each step must be completed IN ORDER and one at a time. Once a swimmer has earned the first 4 stars and met the 5th goal, they turn the stars into the coach and receive an ASC pin to represent their accomplishments! Each step is a challenge and the program is geared to facilitate passion and excitement about competition while rewarding hard work and dedication. Some steps require a special time set up between you and the coaches. Each set must be swum with good breathing patterns, technique, turns (if required) and effort.
