Welcome to on-line registration for the

Folsom Sea Otters 2021 season!

Due to restrictions based on local public health guidelines related to Covid-19, the 2021 swim season will be modified.  FSO practices, meets and team events will all look a bit different this year, but we are nevertheless excited to move forward with our season. 

Some changes due to COVID-19 restrictions this year include:

  • Quiet Period rules are waived this year.
  • Virtual Meets (8 planned, but may be consolidated to less). Includes more bye weekends during the summer this year.
  • Swimmers age 19 who were on a SSL roster in 2019 may participate again to experience their last season.
  • There will be no scoring for the SSL. (Times and Team Records will be recorded.)
  • No end of season SSL Championship meet is scheduled.
  • Practice schedules may be modified this year to accommodate all registered swimmers with an expectation to have as much swim practice time as possible.

The Folsom Sea Otters has a goal of trying to make this season as much of a normal season for swimmers with keeping in mind there may be necessary changes to planned activities, practices, and meet schedules as new direction is relayed to the team from the city, county, and state Public Health Departments.

We encourage all swimmers to register as soon as possible in order to reserve your space on the team.  It may become first-come, first-served in the event COVID-19 capacity restrictions severely limit the number of swimmers in the pool at one time. If restrictions significantly reduce the practice time and/or season, the FSO will evaluate season costs to consider refunds in part or full.

 

Registration from January 29 - Feb 28, 2021:  All RETURNING and NEW swimmers and their siblings are invited to sign up during this time.  All swimmers who sign up during this time will only receive a spot as long as there is still room left in the applicable age group. Due to potential restrictions on lane space imposed at the Steve Miklos Aquatic Center due to Covid-19 guidelines, registering to secure a spot on the Folsom Sea Otters swim team will operate on a FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED basis this season.  

Senior Swimmer Rate: All swimmers age 15-19 are eligible for the discounted registration fee of $145 until May 14 (no late fee). Because the 2020 season was cancelled, the Suburban Swim League has decided that any swimmers who would have participated as seniors in the summer of 2020 are welcome to swim in the 2021 season, even if they have already left high school.

Water Safety Check on April 7, 2021 (4:00pm - 8:00pm): All NEW swimmers, including those registered for the Jr. Otter Program, must pass a Water Safety Check to secure a spot on the team. The Water Safety Check will be held at the Steve Miklos Aquatic Center on April 7 from 4:00pm - 8:00pm, rain or shine!  (Any new swimmers who previously swam for USA swim teams, high school teams or a different swim team in previous seasons may be allowed to bypass our Water Safety Check upon verification and approval by team personnel.  Please provide this information to our Registrar during the registration process and she will forward the information to the appropriate person for confirmation.)

Late Registration March 1- April 26, 2021:  Late fee of $25 per swimmer ages 4-14 applies during this registration period. Late fee does not apply to swimmers ages 15-19.

 

Tips for on-line registration:

  • PLEASE register all of your swimmers at one time in order to receive the multi-swimmer discount.
  • It's helpful to have on hand your medical insurance card and emergency contact information
  • Credit card (or debit card) is required for on-line registration.
  • Verify the entries are correct in each field, and update the information on all the tabs!

2021 Jr. Otter Program June 1st through July 11th TBD

Due to the challenges related to the Covid-19 virus, we are unable at this time to determine if our Jr. Otters Program will take place this season.  The Folsom Aquatic Center operates under the guidelines mandated by the City of Folsom and the Sacramento County Public Health department. As we are updated by local public health agencies, we will update our web-site regarding this season's Jr. Otter Program.  

We look forward to having you join the

FOLSOM SEA OTTERS 

and are excited to get back into the pool!
