All-Stars Swim Team

Registration Now Available!


We’re excited to announce that registration for the Southside All-Stars Swim Team 2017 is now open!

The Southside All-Stars Swim Team is back and sure to be better than ever. Led by Sydney Marvin, a veteran All-Stars team member and coach of 11 summers, our swimmers will gain tons of experience and advance their skills through weekly practices and regular season swim meets. We’re excited to kickoff the season with a fun pizza party, where swimmers can get to know their coaches and checkout the pool, and, like previous seasons, we’ll look forward to celebrating our swimmers’ many accomplishments at the annual swim banquet at the end of the season.

POOL LOCATIONS


  • Have a Southside Place City Season Pass and be in good standing.
  • Sign up for two volunteer spots per family.
  • Be 5 years old by June 1, 2017. (This age limitation may be removed with approval from Coach Marvin.) Swimmers may participate up to the summer after high school graduation.
  • To participate in meets, swimmers should have our team suit. This year we will have a new team suit that can be purchased at a Suit Purchase Day at practice on May 25th. We use Texas Swim Shop (10429B S. Post Oak, 713-723-0910). If you are unable to make practice, you can go to the swim shop and they will help you out!
  • Meets are held in two parts:
    – 6&U: 4:30 Warm-up / 5:00 Start
    – 7&Up: 6:00 Warm-up / 6:30 Start / Meets typically end between 9:30 and 10:00
  • League rules state that 6&U swimmers must be able to swim the length of the pool without assistance in the water to compete in meets. This rule does not prevent your child from joining the team, and we encourage you to still sign them up.
  • Please see the attached calendar for our season schedule.
  • SWAL meets are run by parent volunteers who help time, hand out ribbons, scribe and gather swimmers for their events.
  • Each Southside family is required to sign up for at least two volunteer shifts during the season. It is a great way to get front row seats for the action and to pass the time! Click here to sign up for a volunteer spot today.
  • We encourage all novice swimmers to sign up for swim lessons at a location of your choice. While everyone’s skills will improve over the summer, your child will benefit from the smaller group environment of lessons with our coaches.
  • More information will be available once the season begins.
