Open for New Members
10/1/20 - 5/31/21
Welcome to the Barracuda Swim Club of Northeast Tennessee Electronic Registration platform for our upcoming swim season! We are pleased to offer electronic payment processing and registration. The process is simple for both new and returning members. You'll get access to your own private account that will enable you easily declare for swim meets, sign-up for jobs, see your children's swim times histories, maintain your own contact information, and more.
Before you begin:
You will need to know a couple of things before beginning the registration process:
1. At which site and practice group is my child swimming?
Our sites are in Johnson City and Kingsport. Practice groups are determined by a swimmer's ability level. Our practice groups are Green, Blue, Silver, PreSenior, and Senior. If you received an evaluation at the pool, the coach should have mentioned in which practice group your child will begin. If you still need to schedule an evaluation, simply contact the coach at whichever site is more convenient for you. If you are registering a new swimmer, please wait until you have been given an evaluation and know which practice group your child is in.
2. Which Payment Plan best meets my needs?
Our fee structure is designed to be fiscally sound and simple to understand. Those joining or re-registering in September have the option of paying either a lump-sum amount or paying monthly. Those joining after September will be charged monthly. Green practice group swimmers only have the monthly payment option. Details about fees and payment plans are available using the "Fees" link under the "About Our Club" tab at the top of the home page.
3. Which payment method will I use?
Several payment methods are available:
Families may pay by credit card (transaction fees apply)
Families may choose to have their fees automatically withdrawn from their bank accounts. Simply fill out a DEBIT FORM which can be found by clicking "Forms" under the "For Parents" tab on our website and return it to our Administrative Director.
(If there are extenuating circumstances which require a family to pay by check or cash, please contact the team Treasurer or Coach.) Financial Assistance: If a child qualifies for the Federal Free or Reduced School Lunch Program, significant discounts in both USA Swimming and BSC fees are available. See a coach or contact our Treasurer for details.
Special Note for Scholarship Families: In the registration process, the system does not allow us to automatically adjust fees for scholarship swimmers. Simply indicate the training group and location in which your child is swimming. Choose pay by check option. We will manually calculate what you owe and inform you of the amount. Check the "Premium Membership" box at checkout and we will manually make the adjustment.
4. Which type of USA Swimming Membership does my child want/need?
There are two types of regular USA Swimming memberships: The traditional annual membership (now called the Premium Membership) and the Flex Annual Membership. (Those who qualify for the Free or Reduced Lunch Program have a third option - Outreach (Scholarship)). The Flex membership has some limitations:
(1) A swimmer can only participate in 2 USA Swimming sanctioned meets (summer league doesn't count) while on the Flex membership. After that, a swimmer must upgrade to a Premium Membership by paying the difference between the two types.
(2) Swimmers participating in meets at or above the Southeastern Championship level must have a Premium Membership.
During Registration, everyone will automatically be charged the Flex Membership option at check out. You may elect to upgrade to the Premium Membership at that time. (If you will be on scholarship, do not choose the Premium membership upgrade. We will be modifying your membership category manually).
During the registration process you will come to a series of Agreements. Once you have read through these, click the button indicating you understand and agree to them and proceed with the registration process. If you have any questions about any of the agreements, feel free to contact a Coach or Board member.
Once you have completed the registration process it will be reviewed and your account will be activated!
We look forward to having you join the Barracuda Swim Club of Northeast Tennessee and are excited for another great season!
