STAR Registration Will Begin Sept. 16

STAR (Southern Tier Aquatic Racers) Swimming will hold open registration for the 2013-2014 competitive short course swim season and its Competitive Swim Experience program during the week of Sept. 16.

Swimmers can register for either program during the first week of practices.

Practices are held Mondays from 5:30-7 p.m. at Frewsburg, Tuesday and Friday from 6:30-8 p.m. at Southwestern, and Wednesday and Thursday from 6:30-8 p.m. at Jamestown.

STAR is again offering a six-week program, beginning Sept. 16, to introduce those who are interested in competitive swimming without the 26-week commitment. Training sessions are one hour long, three nights a week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday). The program concludes with a swim meet for those who want to compete.

STAR swim team is open to all ages and only limited swimming experience is required. The short-course season is a 26-week program running from mid-September to mid-March.
