2018 Thousand Oaks Otters Registration
Open for Returning Members
3/1/18 - 6/8/18
Open for New Members
3/22/18 - 6/8/18
Welcome to the 2018 Electronic Registration platform for the back to back Northland Conference Champions, the Thousand Oaks Otters. We are excited about the upcoming swim seaons and are happy to announce the addition of the Pups Developmental Program described below.
After keeping our registration fees the same since 2013, it is now necessary for us to implement a $15 increase on our per swimmer registration fee. The per swimmer fee will now be $112 for residents and $122 for non-residents. Consistent with the past, you will receive a $10 multi-swimmer discount for each additional swimmer you register after your first one.
You will be asked to choose a registration group for your child.
If your child only swims during the summer swimmer season, please choose Summer Swimmer. The pricing reflects a required USA Swimming Registration fee. Your child cannot participate on the team without this registration.
If your child swims on a year-round swim team (NLU, Club North, Blue Wave, etc.), please choose Year-Round Swimmer. The pricing reflects only the Thousand Oaks Otters registration fee since the USA Swimming Registration fee is paid through their year-round team. PLEASE ONLY SELECT "Year-Round Swimmer" IF YOUR CHILD WAS ACTIVE WITH A YEAR-ROUND TEAM DURING THE FALL 2017 OR SPRING 2018 SEASONS.
PLEASE NOTE THE PUPS DEVELOPMENTAL PROGRAM HAS REACHED ITS LIMIT OF 20 SWIMMERS. PLEASE DO NOT REGISTER YOUR SWIMMER FOR THE PROGRAM. THERE ARE STILL SPOTS REMAINING FOR THE FULL SWIM TEAM, BUT PLEASE NOTE YOUR SWIMMER MUST BE ABLE TO MEET THE REQUIREMENTS SHOWN BELOW.
We are excited to announce that we will once again be offering the Pups Developmental Swim Program as part of the Thousand Oaks Swim Club for the Summer 2018 Season. This program is for 5-6 year olds ONLY, based upon their age as of July 31, 2018, who are not quite ready to join the Otters but would benefit from practice time with our coaches to work on the fundamentals of both freestyle and backstroke. The child needs to be able to swim the WIDTH of the Otters pool, or approximately 11 meters in order to begin this program. Just so there is no confusion, this program is not a "swim lesson" for those who do not yet know how to swim but rather is for those children who need to work on their technique in order to get a jump start on full participation on the Otters for the 2019 Summer Season.
We are limiting this program to 20 swimmers and preference will first be given to returning families, however any remaining slots open when new member registration opens on March 22nd, 2018 will be on a first come, first serve basis.
This program will be at a reduced rate of $30 per swimmer plus a required $40 USA Registration fee, or $70 in total. We anticipate the program will begin on June 11th and run for 4 weeks, meeting on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesdays, with no Pups practice during the week of the 4th of July. Participants in this program, will NOT initially participate in swim meets, however if during the season you decide that you would like your Pup to participate in one of the meets and the head coach agrees that the Pup is ready, they will be allowed to participate in a meet. If your Pup participates in one of our meets, we will need to collect an additional $8 fee per Pup which we must remit to the Northland Conference. This program was great success last season and we look forward to many of last years Pups graduating to full participation with the Otters this season.
Family Registration Fee
Similar to last year, there is a $35 per family registration fee. During the registration process, you will be asked if you or someone you know works for a business that would benefit from advertising in our heat sheets or on our T-shirts. If you are committed to being a Corporate Sponsor or have a firm commitment from a business that you are going to introduce to the Otters as a Corporate Sponsor at a $100 donation level or above, please answer the question "Yes" and you will qualify for a $30 credit toward your registration fee. By selecting this option, your contact information will be provided to the Vice President of Fund Raising, and they will contact you with details. If you have previously been notified that you were exempt from fundraising because of your life to date fundraising level, please also answer this question "Yes".
Late Registrations will be accepted after May 15th on a space available basis with a $20 per swimmer late registration fee. If you are a Thousand Oaks Resident that moved into Thousand Oaks after August 1, 2017, this fee can be waived by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org before registering online.
We look forward to having you join the Thousand Oaks Otters and are excited for another great season!
With the exception of the Pups program, your child must be able to swim the length of the pool unassisted and be 6 years old by 8/1/2018 (or have completed Kindergarten) to participate on the Thousand Oaks Swim Club.
This year you will once again be able to pay your registration fee by credit card or check. There will be no additional fees charged if you opt to pay via credit card. You will be asked to select a payment option as part of the registration process. PLEASE NOTE, WHEN PAYING VIA CREDIT CARD, AFTER CHECKING OUT VIA CREDIT CARD, IT MAY TAKE 1-2 MINUTES FOR THE SYSTEM TO PROCESS THE PAYMENT. PLEASE DO NOT HIT THE BACK BUTTON OR CLOSE OUT THE WINDOW WHILE IT IS PROCESSING.
