SPRING and SPRING/SUMMER REGISTRATION
PLEASE READ THROUGH BEFORE CALLING.
REGISTRATION BUTTONS ARE BELOW.
THANKS FOR YOUR INTEREST IN THE BADGER AQUATICS CLUB AND OUR 2016 SPRING OR SPRING/SUMMER SESSIONS. BEFORE YOU CONTINUE WITH THE REST OF THE REGISTRATION PRCESSS, PLASE TAKE A MOMENT TO READ THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION ABOUT HOW OUR REGISTRATION PROCESS WORKS.
For the past several years at BAC, we've had a high level of interest in the club for all of our sessions. For our recent fall and winter sessions, this unfortunately meant that we weren't able to accommodate every single swimmer that was interested in BAC. Last spring, we had similarly high numbers for many of our groups, but thankfully didn't have to turn anyone away.
This spring we're anticipating another high number of interested athletes in BAC. We want the registration process to go as smoothly as possible and to be as proactive as we can in case we aren't able to accommodate everyone. Consequentluy, we've set up our spring and spring/summer registration similar to our registration process last fall.
Registration for the spring and spring/summer sessions will open on February 17th and close on March 9th. During this time, all interested swimmers (both returning BAC families and families that are new to the club) will be able to go through our registration process. However, this registration does NOT guarantee someone a spot; instead it lets us know who is interested, and in which group. After the registration period closes, we'll have an idea of how many swimmers are interested in each of our groups for the spring session. We'll then be able to take the next step in determining whether or not we're able to accommodate all of them. (Remember, all winter BAC swimmers need to confirm group placement with their current coaches prior to registering.)
If we have more swimmers for a particular group than we have space available, we'll notify everyone ASAP about our plans. Our first priority has always been to take care of returning swimmers as well as families that have a history with BAC. After that, we'll do the best that we can to accommodate new swimmers for each group. We may need to run a new swimmer evaluation at the end of March, which would help determine who gets the limited number of available spots. (If that is the case, then new swimmers will receive an email after registration closes.)
*BAC will also be running a brief 'stroke clinic' in May. This 8-session clinic is intended for swimmers looking for just a tune-up prior to their summer league seasons and not necessarily current BAC swimmers. We'll have a seperate registration for this clinic at a later - anyone with questions should email Jacob at email@example.com
**In order to be considered for any available roster spot, you'll need to complete the entire online registration process and have all of your previous sessions PAID IN FULL! Please do not pay spring or spring/summer fees until you get word that your registration has been approved. (We will offer the 2 payment plan again this year for spring/summer swimmers only - half due now and the balance due by May 27th.)
All swimmers will be REQUIRED to be USA registered, regardless if a swimmer is planning on competing in meets. All spring swimmers have to pay the 2016 USA Swimming fees if they were not paid in fall/winter. If you are a current 2016 USA swimmer transferring from another team you will need to send in a USA transfer form (found under "more information, forms/documents page") along with your payment. This regular fee is good until 12/31/2016 and the seasonal fee is good until 8/31/16. The 2016 fee is $62 (9 & up) and $54 (8 & under). There is an optional seasonal USA fee of $43 for spring only swimmers. This fee will cover a swimmer from March thru August 2016. A swimmer will need to renew 2016 fees if swimming in fall of 2016 when chosing this option.
Along with the registration fee & USA fee, BAC also charges two addtional "family" fees each session; an administrative fee of $45 and a fundraising fee of $30. These fees are per family and are charged every session (fall, winter, spr/sum). There is no administrative or fundraising fee for Little Badger swimmers or for stroke clinic swimmers.
BAC has always prided itself on being an organization that has been able to take swimmers of all abilities and help them to improve and to succeed. The recent increased interest has stretched our available pool time and space to the limit. We'd love to be able to accommodate every interested swimmer, but the simple reality is that may not be able to this spring.
Thanks, and if you have any questions about the team or about group placement, please email our Head Age Group Coach Jacob Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions about fees or the registration process itself, please email our Business Manager Sherry Niesen at email@example.com
We look forward to having you as part of the Badger Aquatics Club!
