Thanks for your interest in the Badger Aquatics Club and our 2013 Fall session. Before you continue with the rest of the registration process, please 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 our club for all of our sessions. For our 2012 and 2013 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 fall we?re anticipating another high number of interested athletes in BAC.? In order to make the registration process go as smoothly as possible ? and to be as proactive as we can in case we aren?t able to accommodate everyone ? we plan on doing a few things differently than you might expect.
Registration for the?fall session will open on?July 29th?and close on Aug.10th.? 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 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?fall session.? We?ll then be able to take the next step in determining whether or not we?re able to accommodate all of them.
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 as many new swimmers as possible for each group.? Prior to our fall session, we will run a two-week ?stroke clinic? where?we will evaluate perspective new swimmers.? All new families wishing to join BAC will need to participate in this clinic.? The clinic will determine who gets the limited number of available spot.
**(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 I?N FULL ??please do?not pay?fall fees until you get word that your registration has been approved.) Fall fees can be paid at our Parent/Swimmer Meeting and Picnic on Sunday Aug 25th at the Middleton Outdoor Pool.? We will offer the 2 payment plan again this year.? Half due at registration, the balance due by Oct. 30th.
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 fall.
Thanks, and please email if you have any questions about the registration process(email@example.com)
PLEASE READ THROUGH CAREFULLY.? YOU WILL FIND WHERE? TO REGISTER AT THE END.? MOST OF YOUR QUESTIONS CAN BE ANSWERED BY READING THIS PAGE, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU READ IT FULLY.
Please note -?five?important items:
#1:? Use Caps for first letter in proper names/intials and lower case for the rest when filling in information. Example:? Badger Aquatics Club, 7201 Maywood Ave., Middleton, WI?
#2:? T-shirt size needs to be entered for team t-shirt.? PLEASE UPDATE YOUR SIZE FOR THIS SEASON. All fall/winter swimmers will receive a team t-shirt and latex BAC cap.
#3:? If you are new to BAC and not sure what group to register for, look at the groups and ages on the groups/fee page and register for the group that you think your swimmer would best fit in to.? All new swimmers are required to participate in our stroke clinic and his/her group will be adjusted after that.? You can email Jacob Johnson if you have questions about groups also (firstname.lastname@example.org).? After registering for your main group go back to the start registration page and register for the stroke clinic.
#3:? When you go to check out and pay, the system will tell you that you will not be approved until we receive your payment.? Stroke clinic should be paid for immdiately but all other groups should not pay anything until an email goes out that you have been accepted into the program.? At that time, 1/2 payment will be due immediately with the balance by 10/30/13.? We do offer credit card payment but there are fees for this convenience. ALL PAST FEES MUST BE PAID IN FULL IN ORDER TO BE APPROVED.
#4:? If you register one swimmer, get out of program and come back later to do another swimmer, an extra admin. and fundraising fee will be charged by the program.? I usually catch that when I approve your swimmer but it does not hurt to email me and remind me.
#5:? If you find anything goofy?or unclear please email Sherry at email@example.com so I can get it fixed.?
Upon completetion of your registration your swimmer will need to be approved.? All past due meet/registration fees will need to be paid IN FULL in order to participate in the new season.? NO EXCEPTIONS!? Your swimmer will not be approved until these fees are paid up.
All swimmers with the exception of LIttle Badgers and trial/stroke clinic members,? will be REQUIRED to be USA registered, regardless if a swimmer is not doing meets.? All winter swimmers have to pay the 2014 USA fees if they were not paid in fall.? If you are a current 2013 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.? IF YOU DO NOT SEND IN THE TRANSFER FORM WITH YOUR PAYMENT I WILL ASSUME YOUR SWIMMER IS NOT REGISTERED AND WILL USE REGISTER YOUR SWIMMER.? YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FEE. This fee is good until 12/31/2014 when paid in fall of 2013.? Little Badgers have the option of paying the fee or not.? If a LIttle Badgers signs up for any meet, other than a BAC intrasquad meet, the USA fee will automatically be charged.?? The 2014 fee is $58 (9 & up) and $50 (8 & under).
Along with the registration fee & USA fee, BAC also charges two addtional "family" fees, EACH session.? A administration fee of $45 and a fundraising fee of $30.? These fees are per family and are charged every session (fall, winter, spr/sum).? If you come in to a session late (pro-rate) you are still expected to pay the full administration and fundraising fee.? There is no administrative or fundraising fee for Little Badger swimmers or for stroke clinic swimmers.?
If you have any questions, please email or call Sherry at 438-7195 (firstname.lastname@example.org)
We look forward to having you join the Badger Aquatics Club!
