Welcome to the Bethlehem Stars Swim Team! For over 30 years, we continue to offer one of area’s top competitive swim programs for youth ages 5-18.


Bethlehem Stars is proud to roster over 100 competitive swimmers on its team each year from across the Lehigh Valley. Swimmers represent school districts such as Bethlehem, Southern Lehigh, Saucon Valley, Allentown and many of the private and parochial schools.


The Bethlehem Stars Swim Team holds many league and district titles, including team sportsmanship awards.


Individually, many of our past and current swimmers achieve qualifying and record-breaking times competing at districts, states (held at Penn State University, State College) and nationals.


Under the guidance of a high-quality, professional coaching staff, we provide technique instruction for all ages and abilities, as well as offer every swimmer an opportunity to improve their swimming skills. Additionally, swimmers are provided an outlet to compete in several dual and invitational meets, learn the value of teamwork and camaraderie, and most importantly have fun enjoying the sport of swimming and doing one’s best!


The Bethlehem Stars is a member of the Penn Del Swim League, which promotes, encourages and supports Y competitive swimming for Eastern Pennsylvania and Delaware. Penn Del’s membership features 27 Ys, 61 individual teams and over 3,000 swimmers. Visit and become a free Penn Del Swim member:
