II. General Comments
To swim with the Sharks, all swimmers (regardless of program) must be registered with Swim BC/Swimming/Natation Canada (SNC). Swim BC charges the swim club with registration fees for this and the Comox Valley Aquatic Club passes these fees on to you. Please note that after you complete registration with us, you can expect an email from Swim BC/Swimming/Natation Canada (SNC), which will ask you to confirm your primary contact information and swimmer information and provide you with a username and password for Swim BC. Failure to acknowledge this email will mean your child remains unregistered and will not be allowed to swim with the club until this is rectified.
Please note that the Swim BC registration fee varies year to year and with your child's age as of December 31 in the year of registration. We also have a club registration fee to defray some of the administrative costs of registering your swimmer. These costs are noted later in this document. If you want more information about Swim BC, visit the website at http://swim.bc.ca.
III. Fees & Payment Methods
Payment for the club is by credit card which can be entered during the registration process. If paying by cheque, please contact the registrar to arrange payment and postdated cheques.
