The Mad City Aqua Stars were founded in 1998, and currently has a membership of 20 athletes, ranging in age from 8 to 19, who live throughout Dane County. The team competes at the local, regional and national level, and trains at the Middleton Area Indoor Pool from September through May.

Our mission statement is as follows:

Mad City Aqua Stars aspires to be an outstanding athletic organization that provides a high-quality experience to every athlete. A high-quality experience is one in which every athlete:

  • Is coached using the principles of Positive Coaching
  • Has fun at practices, showcases and competitions
  • Feels like an important part of the team regardless of performance
  • Learns “life lessons” that have value beyond the swimming pool

We emphasize the development of technical, physical and mental abilities, creative movement and being a cooperative team member. We are committed to creating a positive culture, in which coaches, parents, fans, officials and athletes work together to achieve our mission. We are a no cut team and offer opportunities to all!
