PEAK Registration 2017-18
Welcome to the Pearland Aquatics Electronic Registration platform for the 2017-2018 swim season! We are pleased to offer electronic payment processing and registration. All swimmers on the team must register every swim year and pay new registration fees if they want to continue with us for the next swim year. Our swim year runs from September 1st - August 31st.
This registration is for year-round swim groups.
When registering your will pay by credit card online. Monthly tuition payments are done through auto pay. We do not accept checks for monthly tuition. All families will be required to sign up for auto draft from your banking account, credit card or debit card. After completing your registration and getting approval notice, please go into your account payment set up and make sure the information is correct. Future tuition payments, meet fees and any other charges you have on your account are billed on the 1st of the each month.
All swimmers purchase a PEAK bag tag during registration to identify them as part of the team for access into the Pearland Natatorium for practice. If you have a bag tag from a prior registration, then please email firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be credited back the $3.00 bag tag charge. The bag tag is not a membership to the Pearland Natatorium and is only to be used to gain entrance to the Pearland Natatorium for your swimmer's practice. It does not provide access for use of the facilities by your swimmer or family members other than for your swimmer to be in the pool during practice time.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are new to the team, you will receive a log in and pass code to the website within 24 hours of registering. It is not automatic. It has to be done manually. The account/password you create during registration is only to log into our registration system not our team website.
You will be paying February's tuition during this registration; the first automatic billing of tuition will be March 1, 2018.
If you are registering multiple swimmers in the same family for our year round team, you will receive a multi-swimmer discount beginning with the second swimmer's tuition after registration. The discount will be credited to your PEAK account and against your next month's bill.
There is a $200 per year/per family fundraising requirement which is due by June 30, 2018. Please check out the fundraising tab on the website for options to earn credit towards this requirement. All families are required to pay the full fundraising requirement. If you do not wish to participate in fundraising activities, you may ask to be billed for fundraising requirement either in monthly payments or by lump sum.
In addition to the fundraising requirement, each family has a volunteer hour obligation; number of hours varies by swim groups. If during the swim season your swimmer is asked to move to a different group then your service hour requirements will be adjusted according to the new group’s requirements.
Please make sure you read the fundraising and service hour agreement on this registration.
This year, the unworked service hour fine and the no show fine are $75.00/hour. We need families to volunteer. We can't run a successful program or host meets without parent volunteers. Our hosted meets help keep our tuition costs down.
Other charges that may be billed to your account include swim caps and meet fees. Practice caps and meet caps are available through the coaches. As for meet costs, each meet has fees per event that vary. These fees will be billed to your PEAK account. They usually range from $5-$10 an event depending on the meet. Please contact our Treasurer, Karen Gapsiewicz at email@example.com after the meet has been posted on our website but prior to signing your swimmer up for it, if you would like to know what those fees are for that particular meet.
Please make sure that you register from your own computer and know that accepting the agreements acts as your electronic signature and serves as a legal document.
When you get to your billing account information, please click on the tabs for the Guardian and USA Registration and fill in the information before continuing on to the next page in the registration. It will also ask you if your swimmer is transferring from another USA swimming team. Please only mark YES if they were previously on another USA swimming team. If they are coming from YMCA or summer league or Hot Tamales you would mark NO.
Finally, please make sure you enter your cell phone on your account during registration if you would like to receive text messaging from PEAK regarding last minute practice changes. We will be using the Team Unify SMS for text messaging to the team about last minute changes beginning with the 2017-2018 swim year. If you want to receive text messages about last minute practice changes or other updates, please make sure you enter your cell phone and verify the number.
Thank you, and welcome to the PEAK family!
