HIGH SCHOOL SWIMMERS:
High school BOYS competing with their high school team this winter should NOT register for the winter season of GSC. If you have qualifying times for Regionals, Senior Champs, Sectionals, or JO’s, plan to return and compete in those meets. If you are a high school boy not swimming on your high school team this winter, please follow the registration instructions above.
High school GIRLS should follow the registration instructions above for swimmers who did not swim with GSC during the fall. Group placements for high school girls are on this registration platform. If your name is not on the high school girl list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Returning GSC girls from 2019 may register for the winter season and begin swimming after their high school season ends. All other high school girls will begin with the start of our winter season on December 2.
NON-RESIDENTS: A non-resident swimmer is defined as anyone not living in the attendance boundaries of Glenbrook District 225. If your swimmer will be attending Glenbrook North or Glenbrook South High School, you are considered at resident. If your swimmer will attend another area public high school, you are considered a non-resident. For each season of swimming (Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer) during the 2019-20 school year, the non-resident group fee is $50 more than our resident fees. Non-residents must select the non-resident option for their swim group. If the incorrect option is selected, your credit card will be charged for the additional fee as part of the registration approval process.
MEET ENTRY FEES: If you owe previous meet entry fees, your balance will be added to your registration fees at check out. All outstanding fees must be paid in full along with your registration fees to be approved for the winter season.
CONFIRMATIONS: You will receive TWO confirmation emails: one immediately from our registration system, and one within 2 days from email@example.com. Please add this email address to your address book so that our emails will not be blocked from your account. If you do not receive both confirmations promptly, please first check your spam/junk box and then email firstname.lastname@example.org to check on your registration. No confirmations mean that your registration didn’t go through. Once you are registered, you will no longer receive reminders to register, so if you get them and you think you are registered, email our registration gmail address immediately.
