Welcome to the Loudoun Valley Estates (LVE) Torpedoes Electronic Registration platform for our upcoming 2018 swim season!  The process is simple for both new and returning members. 
Here's how to register On-Line:
  1. Click the REGISTER 2018 button
  2. Complete the On-Line Registration Process
  3. Submit a check to LVE Torpedoes Check drop off box or through PayPal. Registration is not complete until full payment has been received.
 
Please keep in mind all space on the team is on a first come, first serve basis and if you choose to wait to register your swimmer until after evaluations, there may not be space still available on the team.  If your swimmer does not make the team based on evaluations, you will be refunded your registration fee, minus the $25 processing. 
 
Please keep in mind that many of the county recreation centers have indoor pools with nominal daily fees. For example, the Claude Moore Recreation Center daily fee is up to $5.50. This could be an excellent opportunity for your swimmer to practice prior to evaluations. All swimmers must be able to swim a full lap without assistance.  If the swimmer is 9 and over they must be able to complete two laps, without stopping, and unassisted.

Competitive Team Evaluations:
All new swimmers to the competitive team must be evaluated. Last year mini torpedoes also must be evaluated  The evaluation date is TBD.
 
LVE Competitive Swim Team Skill Requirement:- We are part of the ODSL a competitive summer league team. To participate on the team swimmers must be 5-18 years old by June 15, 2018.
8 and Under swimmers:  must swim one length of the pool (25 meters) freestyle or backstroke unassisted.
9 and older swimmers:  must swim 2 consecutive lengths of the pool (50 meters) freestyle or backstroke without assistance or touching the bottom.
These guidelines are to ensure the safety of all swimmers and create a positive large group instruction environment.
 
Volunteer Opt-Out Fee: $330 per family. ALL families with swimmers on the competitive team will be required to volunteer 20 hours at meets and in other ways during the season regardless if your child participates in meets.  Families will use the Torpedoes website to register for volunteering positions.  Exact hours required will be determined by the number of families committed as of June 1st and all families will be notified. If you would prefer not to volunteer, you can pay the opt-out fee of $330 that must be paid during registration.  There will be a $20 per hour penalty assessed for all outstanding hours at the end of the season.
 
Mini-Torpedoes Fee:  $185. This program is for younger children between 4 and 7 that are beginner swimmers. If a family only has swimmers on the mini T’s, the hourly volunteer requirement does not apply.
 
Mini Torpedo Evaluations: 
The evaluation date for the Mini T swimmers is TBD. Mini T swimmers can progress to the team at any point in the season once they are able to complete 25 meters freestyle or backstroke. Our goal is to learn to swim!

The last day to request a refund is June 16th.  Please keep in mind that if your swimmer is new to the team, you must attend the mandatory evaluation session.  This is also mandatory for any 2017 mini Torpedoes that would like to swim on the 2018 LVE Torpedo Team.
