2018 Team Registration

It’s registration time again!  We are using the same online-registration program we’ve used for the past 3 seasons.  You will be pleased to note that the fees are lower than they were last year, although the sibling discount remains the same- 20% for the 2nd swimmer in the same family, and 40% for the 3rd or 4th child.  All swimmers must pay the $40 BCSSA insurance fee that covers from May 1,2018-April 30, 2019.

Here are a few tips for making the process easier for you:

-The early-bird discount, which is $50, will be offered to everyone who registers on or before Feb 15.   The discount is applied automatically when you check out.  The discount will expire at midnight on February 15, Eastern Time, so 9pm Salt Spring time.

-Before you register, please check the age locator to determine which division your swimmer is in this year.  The age locator is attached, and
can be found here:

-To receive the sibling discount, you must register all of your children at the same time. DO NOT enter your credit card details until you have
entered information for all of your children.  Once you have finished entering details for your first child, you will see a button near the top of the screen that says ‘register another swimmer’ (or something along those lines).  Click on that and enter details for your next child.  Repeat until all your children are entered, and only then should you proceed to the check-out to enter your credit card details.  You will receive confirmation by email.

-You will be asked to check a number of boxes, indicating that you agree to a number of conditions before you register your swimmer(s).  I
strongly urge you to read these waivers before you commit yourself by checking the boxes- there are some new and important details outlined this year in the waivers.

-Given available space, we will continue taking registrations until April 30.  If you know anyone who is interested in registering their child, please forward them this email with the registration link.
